1-1/2 cups red cherry tomatoes (about 8 oz.) [Use your Ho Farms tomatoes]
1-1/2 cups yellow cherry tomatoes (about 8 oz.) [Use your Ho Farms tomatoes]
3/4 lb. fresh mozzarella (use bocconcini or cut large balls into cubes)
Kernels cut from 1 ear raw fresh corn (about 2/3 cup)
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup julienned fresh mint leaves [Use your Nalo Farms mint]
1 Tbs. sherry vinegar
1/2 cup fruity-spicy, rustic extra-virgin olive oil
Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, immediately putting them onto a platter where their juices can collect. Scatter the mozzarella and the corn kernels over the tomatoes and sprinkle everything with the salt and pepper; top with the mint. Drizzle with the vinegar and then with the olive oil. Toss gently.
The combination of lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro in the Feb. 2-3 bag makes me think Mexican! So in that spirit, I’m posting a few Mexican- and South American-inspired dishes. Cucumbers make me think of refreshing summer drinks so a few of those recipes appear too. And remember, we are now selling locally raised beef from the Big Island.
Use your Green Growers tomatoes and Nalo Greens cilantro (and maybe some avocados left over from the Jan. 26-27 bag?)
4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Picadillo This is a Cuban recipe, not South American, but it’s a wonderful dish. Use your tomatoes in this one, serve with rice and black beans, and have the leftovers in a tortilla with some lettuce the next day!
Cucumber Sandwiches The pictures of these sandwiches are great and making me hungry….
Refreshing Cucumber Water An innovative way to use up some cucumber and it’s good for you!
Cucumber Cocktail…with rum Uses your cilantro too!
Cucumber Cocktail…with vodka If you have mint leftover from last week this one is perfect!
Tangelo Scones This recipe calls for 6 Tangelos so you may need to cut in half.
