Items in the bag for March 23 & 24 will include lettuce, cherry tomatoes, thai basil, long squash, tangelos, Japanese Cucumber, and mizuna.
Mizuna is a Japanese mustard green that can be eaten raw or cooked. It’s delicate leaves work well in baby lettuce and mesclun mixes, and it can be added to soups, stir fries, or more substantial salads as you’ll see in the following recipes.

Here’s a recipe from Oahu Fresh subscriber Claire Falgout. She writes,
Oahu Fresh continually provides great tomatoes and fresh basil for a favorite recipe. Given to me several years ago, it continues to be a hit!
1 lb ripe plum tomatoes (or whatever is in season) cored, seeded and chopped
1 c finely chopped celery (I usually cut this in half)
1/4 c chopped fresh basil (I usually add a little more)
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (9-oz) package fresh three-cheese tortellini
1 (9-oz) package of mushrooms -or– 1 (6-oz) package fresh baby spinach
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
½ to ¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper (I use ¾ tsp cayenne – YUM!)
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
¼ cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
¼ teaspoon salt
Cook tortellini according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
While tortellini cooks, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add garlic and red pepper; sautÃ© 30 seconds. (If the heat is too hot, it will burn when you add the broth)
Add tomatoes, stir, and then add broth, basil, salt, and mushrooms (or baby spinach) to pan; cook 2 minutes or until baby spinach wilts. Stir in tortellini; cook 1 minute.
