Mele Kalikimaka Oahu Fresh members! We are enjoying this holiday season and sincerely hope you are as well.
In this week’s bag we’re bringing you Nalo greens, tomatoes from Ho Farms, collards or kale, pineapple and green peppers from Pit Farms, avocados and a mandarin orange from Hoalike Farm. Sounds like a nice variety of produce this week!
How can you use this produce and spice up your post holiday meals? Here are our suggestions:
Moroccan Cooked Green Pepper and Tomato Salad (taktouka)–try this out for your New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day gathering. Use pita bread or pita chips or even other veggies to dip into it.
Cider Braised Collards with Ham For those of you who baked a ham this is a recipe to make use of your leftovers! **
**If you receive kale or swiss chard instead of collards you can still make this dish, but those greens may not need to be cooked quite as long.
Avocado Sandwich I love avocados and feel fortunate to live somewhere where one variety or another seems to be in season all the time! And I love to put avo slices on sandwiches…this recipe is mouthwatering, but it will also give you ideas on how to customize to your own tastes.
