You are here: Home Food & Kitchen Local Food In Season Now: Salad Mix In Season Now: Salad Mix by rachelshulman April 12, 2011, 6:00 am Although the farmers market here in central Illinois doesn’t start until May, I’m lucky enough to have access to produce from local farms year-round. One of my favorite farms even offers weekly pick-ups of fresh produce January through May. Last weekend was a most exciting one because that farm was selling the first salad mix of the season. And there’s nothing I like better for dinner than a huge salad! Normally I would just improvise, but with something as special as the spring’s first baby greens, I like to follow a recipe. Here are some of my favorites: Asian Green Salad with Sweet Shallot Vinaigrette Baby Salad Greens With Sweet Potato Croutons and Stilton Baby Greens with Roasted Beets and Potatoes Ginger Jeweled Salad Recipe Mixed Spring Greens Salad With Roasted Beets Image courtesy of mikeisgoing via a Creative Commons license.
