A friend posted on Facebook that a local organic farm was hoping to expand into new areas, including our neck of the woods. Hosting comes with a bit of a discount, so I hopped on board that very night. They checked out my porch to make sure it would work out, fast forward to today and I'm coming home to a porch full of organic vegetables. And apparently an envelope full of capacitors for Jeff. Veggies and capacitors: that's how we roll.
|Hooray for Veggies!|
This time of year in Pittsburgh, veggies are a lot of greens and herbs. And some kind of turnip, which I am not at all sure what to do with. Instead, I made this creamy, herby dressing to go on a big huge salad full of lettuce, and cucumber, and radishes from our garden. ZOMG garden radishes, you are delightfully zingy. Don't stop, radishes! We love you!
|Creamy Herb Dressing|
Creamy Herb Dressing
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves*
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves*
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves
- 2 garlic scapes*
- 1 green onion, with the top and bottom chopped off, and the rest diced up a bit
- juice of half a lemon
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sour cream (I used light)
- salt & pepper to taste
Directions: Whiz everything in a blender until it's dressing consistency. Seriously, it's that easy.
*All of these things were in my CSA box this week. To be honest, I kind of ripped off Simply Recipe's Green Goddess recipe, but swapped in stuff I had in my CSA, and omitted the anchovy.
|My porch today!!!|
I am so excited to be part of the CSA and super excited to be eating yummy organic vegetables again.
Hope you're all having an awesome week!
