  1. Found a great recipe perfect to try this week – probably tonight!

    1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
    1 large head red-leaf lettuce (1 pound), torn into pieces
    6 radishes, cut into thin wedges
    1/4 cup pine nuts (about 1 ounce), toasted

    PreparationWhisk together oil, zests, juices, a rounded 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl until salt has dissolved.

  2. I found this recipe in a search on Monday; about to give it a go.

    Spinach Pesto

    4 cups spinach leaves (stems removed)
    2 tbsp chopped spring garlic or 2 garlic cloves
    2 tbsp chopped parsely
    1/4 cup pine nuts
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 grated parm

    In a food processor combine the garlic and nuts first until coarsely ground. Add spinach and parsley in handfuls. Pour in olive oil and scrape down sides to get it all in there. Add cheese and puree. Adjust ingredients to taste.
