Aloha Oahu Fresh members! Welcome to summer…and a fantastic full bag of locally grown greatness. This week we’re so happy with our bag–it’s full of wonderful seasonal fruit (mangoes and lychee), greens (kale and manoa lettuce), tomatoes, cucumbers, and a fresh mix of herbs (rosemary, Italian sage, and thyme) from Nalo Farms.
What will you be doing with all this goodness? Well, I bet it won’t take you long to try those juicy mangoes and if you can be patient and put the lychee in the fridge for a bit, you’ll be rewarded with chilled sweet “candy” with very little effort.
For the remainder, here are a few suggestions:
Chilled Kale and Potato Soup A great make-ahead that you can take for lunch and not even have to use the microwave! Just grab your water and a spot in the sun for a healthy noontime break.
Cucumber Hummus Bites with Sesame Seeds These look elegant, but don’t wait for a party to make them. Pamper yourself and your family with these delicious appetizers while the sun goes down…you’re worth it!
Lychee Martini Because you need a drink to go with those appetizers…
Mango Salsa This is great on fish or chicken, or in fish tacos.
Grilled Chicken with Herbs Use the mixed herbs from Nalo (Poultry Mix) for a wonderful grilled chicken dinner.
Happy Summer everyone!
