Week Five of 2013

We got...

Beets, Broccoli, Carrots, Cucumber, Kale, Onions, Salad Mix, Salanova Head Lettuce, Scallions, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Basil, Cilantro

Fruit: Cherries
My ideas....
Beets and Basil – This Golden Beet Pasta uses both Beets and Basil.  It also uses the Beet Greens.  No reason not to substitute CSA Beets for the Golden Beets.
Broccoli and Onions – I’m freezing these.  The University of Missouri Extension website has a great guide for freezing vegetables.
Carrots and Cilantro – Again, a good looking recipe that helps use the herbs.  Moroccan Spiced Baby Carrots looks like a great way to use early season CSA Carrots.
Cucumber – Summer can’t go by without Cucumber Salad.  I made this recipe last week using crushed red pepper in place on the jalapeno, and cilantro in place of the dill.
Kale – A reader suggests this Kale Slaw with Peanut Dressing.  The review was that the whole bowl was gone, they couldn’t get enough.
ZucchiniThese Stuffed Zucchini Boats look like a refreshing summer dish.  The recipe calls for Scallions and Cucumbers – other items from this week’s share.
