Extra special CSA share this week with additional number of items meant to assist in a delicious, nutritious and beautiful presentation while entertaining yourself and your guests over the Memorial Day weekend (and throughout the week). The fire roasted chilis can be frozen for a later date or consider chopping them with the tomato, cilantro and chives for a dip or topping if you plan on grilling outdoors. Mint, dill and chives could also be paired with the cucumbers. The chilis, turmeric, tomatoes, lemongrass and cilantro could be used for an Asian style dish. Or maybe you would like an iced tea brewed with lemongrass and mint. Or cucumber water with mint. To your health and your pleasure, always! Enjoy

  • Calamondin Oranges
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Nasturtium Flowers
  • Rose Geranium
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Cucumber
  • Tomatoes
  • Baby Salad Mix
  • Baby Tatsoi
  • Micro Red Cabbage
  • Micro Cilantro
  • Micro Broccoli

lamondin oranges, turmeric, ginger, tomato, cucumber, micro cilantro and baby tatsoi could all be a yummy addition to an Asian/Middle Eastern themed meal, especially a curry. Or consider using the micro cilantro for a taco night. Rose geranium and lemon verbena are great together in tea, as a syrup or in deserts, including baked goods. With the beautiful and tasty local strawberries at our Farmer’s Market right now, consider making a brew of the geranium, verbena, strawberries and a squeeze of calamondin for an exciting and delicious combo! For the best flavor infusion, do not boil the rose geranium and lemon verbena, rather heat until steamy and remove the leaves as they turn army green. Rose geranium does well soaked in yogurt for about an hour, making a nice dressing for an apple salad or fruit dip.

To your health and your pleasure, always! Enjoy

  • Baby Salad Mix
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Chef’s Chervil
  • Red Ribbed Sorrel
  • 10×10 Red Mustard
  • Micro Amaranth
  • Micro Cilantro
  • Micro Tatsoi
  • Micro Red Cabbage
  • Poultry Herb Mix
  • Mint
  • Chives
  • Marjoram

Some classic salad ingredients are included this week with a box of baby greens, tomatoes and cucumber. We like to chop the tomato and cucumber into a bowl and drizzle them with balsamic vinegar and use that combo as the “dressing” to the greens. The red mustard can make a nice side veggie for a dinner by just pan frying until wilted. They are also delicious raw, if you prefer. Consider the possibility of spring rolls this week using a selection of your microgreens, a bit of slivered mint, baby salad mix, and a chive laid in the middle. Serve with a plum sauce for dipping. (Some like these with fish sauce. A meat can be added to your liking such as cooked shrimp, chicken or beef strips.)To your health and your pleasure, always! Enjoy
