Last year was the first year we grew celtuce and I absolutely fell in love with it. I really hope you try this wonderful vegetable.
It’s easy to prepare, peel the tender outside to reveal the crunchy, juicy, tender, delicate mild flesh.
You use it exactly like a cucumber or zucchini; raw in salads, simmered in soups, ribboned in a pasta or stir-fried.
Try making this simple salad. I think you too will fall in love with celtuce.
- 1 to 2 large celtuce peeled and cut into bite size pieces
- 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs; basil, sorrel or mint are all nice
- 2 to 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tsp agave or honey
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine everything in a bowl and taste and see if you need more salt or sweetener
Simple and delicious.
Have a great week. See you at pickup.
