Its Tuesday, market day!

Hello Long Beach Locals-

We hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend see you today at the Bixby Park Farmers Market.

Our salad mix has been so popular we will be bringing more today so we don't run out. Our spring mix is a blend of red and green oak leaf, red and green romaine, lollo rossa and raddicchio. One with added herbs and one with arugula and mizuna for a spicier mix. Its washed and ready to eat. You can add different nuts and dried fruit and a fresh dressing. At our house this week we added sunflower seeds, dried currants and some tahini miso dressing, recipe below.

Miso Tahini Dressing

Recipe taken from The Kitchn

Makes about 6 ounces (dresses salad for 6-8)

1/4 cup tahini
1 tablespoon red miso
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup or more warm water
freshly cracked black pepper

In a small bowl or lidded jar, combine the tahini, miso and lemon juice. Mix with a spoon into a smooth paste. Add the warm water gradually, stirring or shaking (if using a jar) until the dressing reaches desired consistency. It may need more than 1/4 cup. Taste for seasoning. Add pepper if desired.

Store in the refrigerator for about a week. Dressing thickens up as it sits, so you will need to add more water to thin.
