We were SO excited when we picked up our CSA Share from Fresh Fork Market this week! As I unpacked our loaded bag of produce, my kids exclaimed “Taco Night!”. We are having a culinary blast using our CSA share this summer.
What’s in the CSA Share?
- Radishes – Radishes are one of those foods that are perfect as nature made them. While I’ve come across several recipes that involve cooking radishes, none of them have inspired me to forgo sliced and dipped radishes in their natural state. For a crisp, tangy “street taco” taste, slice up some radishes and include them as one of the toppings at your next Taco Night.
- Scallions – Add scallions to your tacos, salads, mashed potatoes, and pizzas. Farmer’s Market scallions this time of year tend to be a little milder that those you find in the grocery store. So, even if you’re not a huge onion fan, try using farmer’s market scallions to add a little zest to your dishes.
- Zucchini – Zoodles! It’s the beginning of the season and zucchini is still shiny and new. Break out your vegetable spiralizer and make some noodles. There will be plenty of time for zucchini bread later in the season!
- Cauliflower, Candy Onion, Lettuce – Get out your trifle bowl and make a 7 layer salad. This was a summertime favorite growing up that only looks complicated. This version from Spicy Southern Kitchen is one of my favorites.
- Broccoli – Stay tuned for the Chicken Broccoli Salad I’m going to post later this week. It is addicting!
- Garlic Scapes – These garlic greens are the perfect base for a pesto. Try this Garlic Scape Pesto with Basil on our zucchini noodles, mixed with traditional pasta or over chicken or fish.
How are you using your CSA Share this summer? The biggest takeaway for me is that adding produce to our menu isn’t time consuming or complicated. I kind of shudder when I think of all the produce I threw away because I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, or I thought it would be too time consuming to use.
