Jess & Nick's CSA Delivery #5 - June 28, 2012

I picked up our box of vegetables yesterday after work.  Aren't they lovely?  Especially that incredibly vibrant amaranth foliage up in the top left.  We also received our first zucchini of the season, which really makes it feel like summer.  Next are the beet greens; fennel; a gratuitous amaranth and fennel shot for color and texture contrast; onions; beet roots; and sweetheart cabbage.  We also got more snap peas and some arugula which are not pictured.

I am thinking of all the fun slaws I can make with the cabbage and fennel, and how delicious the first grilled zucchini of the season will taste.  Another idea I'm toying with involves cold, thin slices of roasted beets stacked alternatingly with goat cheese and drizzled with olive oil and fresh basil for a slightly different take on caprese salad.  And perhaps some baked callaloo just how we like it with coconut flakes and bacon.

As always, thank you Harmony Valley Farm!
