I've been anticipating spring season because I knew around the corner spring turnips (and their greens!) would be making their faithful return. Happily and gratefully, we received some in our CSA box last week. Sandwich spread recipe c/o Farmfreshfeasts.com. Sandwich fillings c/o C G. If you don't have the turnips greens you can substitute arugula, watercress or for a less piquant bite-mixed spring greens.

spring turnip greens, chopped
fresh chives, lovage, parsley, tarragon, salad burnet, mint, dill or basil (your choice)

creme fraiche, for thinning if desired (half and half or heavy cream as a sub)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a prep bowl combine the sandwich spread ingredients. If the spread it too thick, you can thin it will a small amount of creme fraiche or other substitute. Cover and chill.

Just before ready to eat, spread the bread slices evenly but not thickly with the sandwich spread. Cut in half or quarters (depends on type of bread used). Enjoy!

Note: do not prepare the sandwiches too far in advance. The bread will become soggy.
