I am working on a CSA farm in exchange for a share. I have a ton of salad greens - mixed baby lettuces, big leafy lettuce, and I am freezing most of my spinach. I am tired of salad, can I use them another way?

Tacos!

Puree and add to spaghetti sauce.

Roll things up in the big lettuce leaves - tuna salad, hamburger, hot dog, etc.

would it be possible to puree them and then freeze them to add to tomato sauce later on?

Put them in sandwiches? Asian lettuce wraps?

Or--can you find someone locally with extra garden produce that would exchange stuff with you? Some mamas in my area do that--they swap their extra tomatoes for someone else's extra herbs or squash, etc.

we do a really good lettuce wrap, with sauteed beef strips, sauteed shoe string carrots and onions, and fried shoe string potatoes. (adds crunch) umm quite tasty.
