I just received my CSA for the week and found a bunch of mizuna. I've never heard of it before and am curious what are good things to make with it? It looks like a flat leaf parsley, almost, and has a pretty mild flavor. If it were you, what would you make with it? Thanks!

Aimee, right now my favorite thing to do with bitter greens or other fresh greens from the garden is to chop them roughly and toss them with boiled new potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. It really mellows out spicy greens but still allows their flavor to come through.
For other ideas for mizuna specifically, check out Kathryn's great post on Asian greens:
