Hi Oahu Fresh members! This week’s bag is hot (as in awesome!), just like our weather lately (not so awesome)! We’re hoping to cool you off though by bringing your bag full of refreshing locally grown food. We have eggplant and kirby cucumbers from Ho Farms, local bananas, roma tomatoes, and avocado from Pacific Gateway Farmers, Tahitian Limes from Hoalike Farm, and mixed organic keiki greens from Kahumana Farm. And be warned–it’s been so hot that greens in some areas, especially lettuces, are just not making it- so the items you will find in this week’s bag are hot weather friendly. But we’ve got some recipes in mind to help you transition from “melting” to cool, calm, and collected, so stay tuned and find a comfy spot to relax while your temperature drops!
Tahitian Limeade Use your Tahitian limes and find a shady breezy spot on the lanai for sipping.
Tilapia Ceviche I know you can find locally raised tilapia, so here you go–a local ceviche recipe! (and you can omit the mayo and use an avocado spread instead)
Rum-Coconut Banana Bread Just in case you don’t eat all of your bananas before they get too ripe…
Vinaigrette for Green Salad This is an easy dressing that you can mix up in a jar with a lid so you can store it. So easy, and no worries if you don’t have champagne vinegar, just use a little apple cider, red, or balsamic and adjust to your taste.
