Soak up the summer rays everyone because it’s back to school time! Hopefully that means it will be cooler weather soon too…which will be good for you and also for our wonderful variety of green produce that we have been missing while it’s been so hot. This week you will receive either swiss chard or butternut squash from Ho Farms, because the weather hasn’t been too helpful for growing green leafy things, so we’ve only been able to get a few bunches at a time. Everyone will have long beans from Ho Farms too, Hauula tomatoes from Green Growers, lilikoi and avocados from Uluwehi Farms, mixed organic keiki greens from Kahumana Farm, and baby daikon and red radishes from Pacific Gateway Farmers in Kunia. What will you do with all this produce? We always like to see your creations so please send recipes, ideas, and suggestions to us via email or our facebook page. It’s virtual potluck!
Tropical Salad with Avocado and Lilikoi Dressing You may wish to sub in a few items from the bag this week to make this salad, like using the organic greens then adding steamed long beans in place of the green papaya.
Sliced Tomatoes with Parmesan Cheese baked, looks delicious!
Pan Fried Daikon Cake These baby daikon will be small and great to eat raw in salads or on the side but if you want to try something different this recipe looks great!
