Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Mesclun, cilantro, and mushrooms. Try a summery mesclun salad with sliced strawberries, pecans, and feta or goat cheese; top with a light vinaigrette and enjoy!

Storage Tips: Store mesclun with a paper towel in the bag to absorb excess moisture and prevent rotting, and soak in cold water to refresh if the leaves start to wilt before you're able to use them. Keep the mushroom bag partly open to allow excess moisture to evaporate.

Unsure what to to do with garlic scapes? They taste just like garlic, only milder, and can be used raw or cooked. Use them in any of the recipes below that call for garlic, or try this link for some cooking inspiration! Garlic scapes will store well in your fridge for a week or two.
