Q: I received my first CSA box for this season, and with it came a mystery green leaf. I have since found out that it is horseradish greens. What can I do with it? The Internet seems divided on this beautiful-looking leaf. Help please!

Editor: While horseradish is mainly grown for the root, the leaves are also edible. The leaves have a sharp, bitter, and peppery taste — similar to arugula and kale. They can be eaten raw or cooked, depending on your preference. Take advantage of raw leaves by incorporating them in salads or pesto, or consider sautéing or cooking them into a stir-fry.

Readers, do you have any advice on how to use horseradish leaves?
