Two Salad Recipes

Here are two salads that you can create with the CSA lettuce mix.  Pattie sent the warm lettuce and mushroom salad idea and I plan to try it tonight with the salad mix.  I have a pomegranate salad listed below that you can use with the salad mix or with spinach.  The pomegranates and spinach have a nice flavor combination.  Send in any of your salad ideas to blog@beneficialfarm.com

Lettuce in Soy Sauce & Mushrooms

Pattie adapted from The Green Thumb Cookbook

1 tablespoon sesame or olive oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 small onion, sliced
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce (according to taste)
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 pound of salad mix or head of lettuce coarsely torn into 2 inch pieces
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (toasted makes it extra yummy)

1. In a large skillet heat oil, then add mushrooms and onion and saute for about 5 minutes.
2. Add soy sauce and honey. Turn heat to low and gradually add lettuce. Stir and toss until lettuce is slightly wilted and thoroughly covered with sauce.
3. Add sesame seeds and serve immediately.
