|First Farm Share Pick-up

We signed up with and were accepted into Farmer Dave's CSA.
Today we got our first pick-up: a huge head of red leaf lettuce and a huge head of green leaf lettuce, a bunch of radishes, a small bunch of swiss chard, a summer squash, two Kousa squash (Lebanese zuccini but smaller and more perishable than regular), one pickling cuke, and a smallish bunch of parsley. There were also a bunch of baby corn (still in the husks) which I ate raw because they were THAT tasty.
Pretty much the only thing that *I* can come up with recipe-wise is a salad. Plus something Middle Eastern with the Kousa. I dunno what to do with the swiss chard.
Any other ideas?
I know I've made a tasty chicken with sliced radishes recipe before, but damned if I can find it in any of my cookbooks. (It wasn't fancy, just chicken and sliced radishes and a few other steps... it was probably in Gourmet or Cook's Illustrated - I subscribe to both of those. But I do occasionally pick up Cooking Light and other random cooking magazines that look interesting, so it's not a sure thing... dammit. And Google isn't really helping.)
Thanks for any help!
