CSAs are great, in theory. It’s community supported agriculture after all. Signing up for a weekly box of just-picked produce from the local farm sounds like the best way to cook seasonal throughout the months of summer, eat healthy, and feel good about supporting your local community. But the thing about theories is that they don’t always pan out in reality. And when it comes to CSAs, especially in the beginning of the season, like now, this is especially true.

This time of year, when the farms are just beginning to harvest, CSA boxes are loaded with greens. No summer tomatoes, no eggplant, not even cucumbers. Just one big box of leafy, threatening-to-wilt greens. Kale, chard, arugula, and about five kinds of lettuce find their way into a single box, to be eaten by you. Thinking about eating it all feels like an impossible burden — how are you going to do it before something goes bad?

You can do it — and you won’t have to eat salads for breakfast, lunch and dinner, either. Here are the recipes that will help you make it a reality.

  1. Kale Mac And Cheese
  2. Coconut Milk Braised Lettuce With Ginger, Garlic And Pepper
  3. Butter Lettuce Soup
  4. Kale Pesto Spaghetti With Goat Cheese
  5. Strawberry, Pistachio, Feta Cheese & Basil Salad
