Here’s 3 Ways to Serve Produce When Its Past the Fresh Salad Stage:

(as long produce leaves have a dry texture it should not be wet- it can be cooked)

  • Cut off bottom browning areas & root discard or save for compost
  • Grill Asparagus until al dente
  • In saute pan, add mushrooms then transfer to Asparagus (keeping warm)
  • Lightly braise leaves front and back add parsley just before finish
  • Season to taste Kosher Salt & Ground Pepper & Red Pepper Flakes

(Romaine Lettuce / Butter Lettuce and other lettuce in this group can be cooked as greens if done lightly)
