Sexy Salad at The Hub SoMa

Early stages of a spinach-celery-fennel salad
A few days ago I did a little guest-chef stint at The Hub SoMa, a sustainably-designed co-working space/resource for change-makers... 
They do a "Sexy Salad" day involving a guest chef and a CSA-style box of produce from Albert and Eve, an organic-produce delivery service, hoping to inspire its members to sign up for a produce delivery.  I had a pretty good idea of what would be in the box, but there were still some surprises and it was pretty challenging and fun to make salads out of the contents.

Plus, there isn't really a kitchen at The Hub - so collards and onions went on the griddle and diced sweet potatoes went in the rice cooker with quinoa, and it all worked pretty well!

Overall, a great time - The Hub's members were super excited and ate everything.  And I had two awesome helpers, Jake and Yonghwan, who washed all my produce and picked herbs and were so cheerful and diligent!  
All of these photos came from The Hub's facebook page, link below if you want to see more of the Sexy Salad scene.
