Aloha Oahu Fresh family! This week brings us into the last days of March and hopefully the last of the heavy winter rains. I am always sad to see the whales leave, but I know there are still some around so get out and see them now while you can!
We return to citrus in this week’s bag, with clementines for you from Uluwehi Farm, long beans from Ho Farms, cucumbers from Pacific Gateway Farmers, organic keiki greens mix from Kahumana Farm, and, at long last, slicing tomatoes (!!) along with green onions from Green Growers. I am feeling like there will be some wonderful salads with this week’s produce, so we are going to
explore those options in this week’s recipe list.
Have you tried roasting a salad? Me neither but I’m about to! Here’s a recipe to help you get started, and keep in mind the mix you receive in your bag is more like 3-4 cups not 6, so you should halve the ingredient amounts listed here. Roasted Salad of Spring Greens In this recipe she uses hazelnuts, but I would probably sub in mac nuts to keep it local or pine nuts, almonds, or walnuts.
Balsamic Steak and Spring Mix salad Easy, healthy, and you can go one or two steps further and add your tomatoes and green onions to this. Or steamed/sauteed long beans.
