Another day, another CSA meal! Ok, we're only two days in. I hope I'll still be this enthusiastic come November.
The main course Friday night was barbecued chicken drumsticks that we had started marinating a couple days before. They grilled up perfectly. On the side, though, we made a salad that was bursting with leafy green CSA goodness.

Ingredients for dressing
Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a blender until the cilantro is finely chopped.
Peel the kohlrabi and chop it as desired. Have you eaten kohlrabi before? It has the texture of apple slices but the taste of a broccoli stem. Chop the beets as desired; julienned works well here.
Combine the kohlrabi, beets, all the leafy greens, the chopped Swiss chard stalk, and any other ingredients you wish, and dress it.
This was a substantial salad! With a couple more ingredients, it could probably stand on its own. I'd add goat cheese next time.
