Dishing Up the Dirt

Bok Choy & Kale Slaw with Creamy Peanut Dressing

It’s our first CSA harvest of the 2024 season and I’m so excited to get back in the kitchen with some new CSA inspired recipes. I took an entire CSA box and pretty much chopped it up and tossed it in a creamy peanut dressing to create this tasty slaw. This side dish would taste really good with grilled chicken, fish, steak or tofu. It also tastes great as leftovers for a few days after its made so you can meal prep this a bit too!

I hope you all enjoy this tasty seasonal recipe as much as we do!

    Made it tonight, our first CSA veggie box too…so fun that even down here in northern Arizona (2 CSA farms are at 5000ft in elevation and 3150ft), it was so similar to yours! Fat radishes, bok choy, chard instead of kale, added some spinach

    Thanks! turned out great
