CSA Recipes

Have any of you started trying new CSA recipes this year?  We love picking up our CSA box brimming with fresh local produce each week. Sometimes it means getting creative with less familiar veggies and lots of salads… but that’s a good thing!

If you’ve never signed up for a Community Supported Agriculture box, most of them are just starting for the season.  Head to localharvest.org or just do a google search for CSA programs in your area. It’s a great way to save on produce and support local farmers!
