Spring Greens

Flowers are actually blooming and it finally feels like spring here in New England!  Now that the weather is changing I'm craving much lighter food.  If you pick up the latest copy of Edible Rhody and flip to "last Bite" you'll see my Spring Greens piece!

Editor Genie, had some great ideas for quick and easy recipes to make with greens. ( salad, sauté and gratin)  Rather than drawing the recipes themselves, I thought it would be more fun to draw and label many of the greens.

I started researching the greens I wasn't familiar with and realized there is a wide variety of local greens available in  our little state of Rhode Island.  I also discovered I had been eating tatsoi in many salads without knowing what it was called.  Yay research!  Thank you Edible Rhody for the awesome assignment!  It was certainly uplifting to work on something light and green in the dead of winter.
