Recipe with sugar snap peas

Sugar snap pea salad w/ orange

Ingredients: sugar snap peas, orange, vinegar, olive oil, honey, fresh oregano, salt, pepper

Preparing: De-string the peas. Cut them lengthwise so the peas are long and you crosscut the actual peas inside. Zest some orange rind and reserve for dressing. Cut the orange into small chunks. Make the dressing: olive oil, vinegar (red wine or white balsamic or cider), orange zest, honey and fresh oregano. Combine the peas, oranges and dressing.

Eating: You might stick it back in the fridge for 30 minutes and serve it crispy cold.

Dish history: I hate to cook sugar snap peas, but when I do I usually make an orange glaze... this is a fresh alternative.

2nd CSA basket

Thanks to all who were able to come out to our member gathering on Friday.

Now that the heat has subsided, we can finish putting a few things in the ground. And we finished prepping our last 2 beds for tomatoes - how did we ever get anything in the ground with all of these rocks and boulders we keep finding??!? Most things are looking good, the garlic is starting to scape... but our eggplants have been targeted by the flea beetles, which I didn't think would ever happen, so we are trying to nurse them back to life.

In this 2nd basket you can expect the following:
lettuce mix (washed and dried), head lettuce, spinach, kale, greens for cooking (chard, vitamin green, Tokyo bekana or braising mix), arugula, radishes, oregano, cilantro, sage
