Green is not the only color in the garden, and we really proved that this week, with gorgeous varieties like Ruby Perfection Cabbage and Chef’s Choice Orange Tomatoes. Different veggie colors offer different nutrients and benefits, as this link describes: Eat A Rainbow
This week, we’ve added Tomatillos, a fun veggies that comes in it’s own wrapper! A member of the nightshade family (which includes tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and potatoes), tomatillos originated in Mexico. They are terrific in a variety of chicken dishes or in a green salsa, like this one from Food Network: Salsa Verde
Another excellent seasonal dish to try (if you aren’t yet acquainted with it) is “Caprese Salad,” an Italian favorite (and the reason we added basil to the salad share this week!). As simple as can be, just slice a tomato, top it with a slice of fresh mozzarella and a couple leaves of basil. As a final touch, drizzle some balsamic vinegar over the top. This one is Justin’s favorite!
