Summer salad with White wine vinegar dressing

This is a great salad to make if you want something quick and just taste like summer.

ingredients:

  • 2 large english cucumbers
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • DRESSING
  • 3 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Make the dressing first: add all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Slice the cucumbers and onion and dice the tomatoes removing excess juice. Place in a bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Salt and pepper to taste if needed. Best if refrigerated for at least and hour to let the flavors combine.

I personally like to sprinkle sunflower seeds in my salad when its been served up. Don’t be afraid to make it your own and change things to suit your taste.

 

Week 2 of Fall shares

Rainy days are just the best in the fall time. There is just something cozy about the cooler temperatures that makes you want to warm up a cup of cider and  curl up with a blanket and good book. Or if it’s not a rainy day then it is actually tolerable to be out side and get your fall garden in. Either is a win in my book.

We have some new things for you to try in your baskets this week.

  • Italian basil (different from the sweet basil)
  • Tomatillo’s
  • pears
  • butternut squash
  • Edamame beans ( wash and shell, then you can eat it raw or toss in a stir fry, pasta, or on a salad)

more of the usual stuff

  • tomatoes
  • peaches
  • cucumbers
  • squash
  • torpedo onion
  • green beans
  • big variety of peppers (bells, Santa Fe, big Jim, garden salsa)
  •  cherry tomatoes

I’m going to be posting two recipes later one a refreshing summer salad and the other a home-made pasta

Oh and shares are ready for pick up when ever you are.
