Herbs in our CSA

Like last year, we'll be including a variety of herbs in our CSA shares this year. June 2nd is our first harvest date for our 15 members this year, so we're getting ready and making plans already. This year we'll include Lovage and Tarragon in our first or second week of the CSA. These are two herbs that may be new to many of us. Here's a recipe I'd like to try out this week and include with our first week's basket. It should go nicely with our salad greens!

Tarragon-Walnut Vinaigrette
This dressing is especially delectable on a simple salad of assorted fresh greens.

3 Tablespoons walnut oil

1 Tablespoon minced shallot

2 Tablespoons champagne vinegar

1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon (a 6" sprig)

(or use 2 Tablespoons tarragon vinegar instead of the vinegar and tarragon)

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Pinch of kosher salt

3 turns of peppermill, or to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake well.

Makes about 1/3 cup
