Great Basin Basket CSA, Week 5 (08/08/13)
This week’s box was so heavy that I could barely carry it out to the car. Seriously, I’m glad that I’m not paying for produce by the pound here!
What was in the box? All organic Galia melons, cantaloupe, seedless watermelon, mixed summer squash (crook neck, yellow/green zucchini), islander peppers, cherry tomatoes, Japanese eggplant, cucumbers, early girl tomatoes and basil from Lattin Farms, basil from Mewaldt Organics, green beans from River Bend Farms and red onions from Pioneer Farms.
Just look at these goodies:
Everything smells so good. The basil is sweet and tangy, the onions are sharp and the fruit is like candy. I think I might just eat all of it raw. No cooking required.
Or, maybe you could help … with some fresh ideas … what would you make with these ingredients?
