What is it with rain every Tuesday? I got today’s basket under cover just in time; the rain was sudden and strong. No matter! This week I have an abundance of jalapeño peppers, along with tomatoes, cucumbers, Swiss chard, kale, lovely little red cabbages, oregano, basil, and cranberry beans in their pods.
This week’s CSA distribution shouts out salsa to me, as well as kale chips, tomato sandwiches, and crunchy cucumber salad. Sounds like a holiday picnic, doesn’t it?
Great ideas for this week:
- kale chips
- pico de gallo (fresh salsa)
- thick-sliced tomato sandwiches on homemade bread
- cucumber & tomato salad (I never get tired of this)
- classic pesto
- tomato tart
- red cabbage and avocado salad
