Cherry tomatoes- a mix of 3 varieties: favorita, sungold, and black cherry. Yum.  Here is a recipe to inspire you to make a caprese salad with these cherry tomatoes and the basil.

Summer Crisp Lettuce- A new lettuce for this week. The leaves have characteristics of both a romaine and a greenleaf, and are arranged in a whorl, giving the plant a unique vase-like shape. Leaves are thick, juicy, and flavorful.  Let me know what you think of this summer lettuce.

Week 6

New this week:

Cabbage: great for coleslaw, stir fried, or soups.  Here is a link for cabbage pancakes which look so good! My family also loves Egg Roll in a bowl

Cauliflower-always good roasted, but my new favorite way to eat cauliflower is riced.  Pulse the cauliflower in your food processor or grate with a box grater. Here is a recipe for "10 Minute Cauliflower Rice"

Yellow Squash- sautéed, roasted. Yellow squash is so versatile and delicious.
