Aloha summer! School is out, the parents out there are probably a little less stressed…well, maybe! But this week we’re bringing you a fabulous bag with produce from some new farmers and we hope you enjoy it. We’re now working with the Pacific Gateway farmers in Kunia, and they bring a variety of produce options to our service. This week we’re bringing you their red radishes and long squash, along with long beans and collard greens from Ho Farms, papaya from Frankie’s nursery, tomatoes from Green Growers, and organic mixed greens from Kahumana Farm. What to do with it all?
Of course a simple salad is sometimes overlooked in favor of making something more complicated, but sometimes simpler is better! Here are a few recipes to inspire you, simply: Perfect Lettuce Salad, Chopped Salad with Avocado and Radish
And if all you need is a dressing, try this one from Ina Garten: Vinaigrette for Green Salad
Awesome Collard Greens a vegetarian version!
Collards, Carrots, & French Green Lentils also vegetarian, and would be tasty with fish as well.
Grilled Summer Squash Disclaimer: this one doesn’t specifically say long squash but I think it would work well and the recipe calls for feta too, so…bonus!!
Thanks so much for linking to my salad recipe on Good Cheap Eats. This summer I’ll also be hosting a round-up of recipes to help you use up your produce box. Details are here: http://lifeasmom.com/2013/06/how-to-use-your-produce-box.html
