Winter Greens and Citrus Salad Recipe
Serves 4
Ingredients
For the Salad:
1 grapefruit
1 naval orange
1 blood orange
5 cups baby kale
1 cup radicchio leaves
1 bulb of fennel, sliced
For the Dressing:
zest of one lemon
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup for a vegan preparation)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preparation
1. Begin by cutting the peel off of the citrus fruits using a sharp serrated knife. Then, slice each fruit into rounds. Arrange the fruit slices on a serving platter.
2. Make the dressing by combining all the dressing ingredients into a jar with a lid. Shake the jar well until the dressing is emulsified. Set aside.
3. Combine the kale, fennel, and radicchio in a large bowl. Toss with the dressing. Arrange the dressed greens over the citrus slices. Garnish with fennel fronds, if desired.

Saturday June 20th Vendor List

Special Father’s Day Fun
Great Grilling by Guest Chef Greg Hallihan
Grilling demonstration and menu ideas – beet slaw yum!

If you are thinking about something special on the menu for Dad
the market is the place to shop. This is the biggest selection of locally grown products in Sonoma County.

Cherries and apricots are on their way out. Pluots are on their way in.

The market is full of lovely lettuces. Armstrong Valley Farm has something new – it is a cross between a leaf lettuce and a romain (cos) type of lettuce. Pictured here.

In the food court:

The Green Grocer farm to table fare. And some would argue the home of the best BLT on the planet.

Manager’s Pick
Right now it has to be the red and the yellow cherries! So juicy and tasty.

A perfect balance of sweet and tart, cherries are juicy and give a little snap when you bite into them, also delivering a dose of potassium, vitamin C and fiber. Though you may find tart or sour cherries in farmers’ markets, the most common varieties are sweet cherries, such as yellow Rainier and dark red Bing cherries

They have a short season. 10 ways to save some cherry goodness.

Ponce/EGB Farms and Busalacchi have cherries.
