CSA Adventure Week One

I just picked up my first CSA box and what greeted me, right on top?  Raspberries! Needless to say many of them didn't make it home.  Also included was one bunch of basil, some sort of lettuce, 3 bulbs of garlic, 2 bunches of carrots, a head of cabbage, a bulb purple  kohlrabi,  a bunch of beets and a bunch of mystery greens.

The Box

I'm thinking I make a coleslaw out of some of the cabbage, carrots and kohlrabi for family dinner tomorrow.  Maybe I'll make some pesto out of the basil. I love roasted beets, so I'll roast those.  I will have some kohlrabi left, should I try to make some pickles out of them.  The lettuce will be used for salad or given away. 

The Haul

Can you help me identify the mystery greens I have an idea, but I'm not certain.  I'm hoping that the CSA forgot to include a list of what I got and I would have to play guess the vegetable every 2 weeks.

What am I?

If you have a suggetions on how to use all these yummmy veggies, give me a shout out.   Keep you eyes peeled for the result of my my cooking.
