I have seen a lot of recipes lately for stuffed squash…wait, let me start again. I have seen a lot of squash lately, so naturally I have been noticing a lot of squash recipes and many of them stuffed. At the market recently I overheard Joanna saying that this squash is particularly good stuffed because of its nutty flavor. For this reason, and because it is a middle eastern squash variety, it just made sense to try it with some spiced lamb, feta cheese, and other items from my share.
There have been a lot of beautiful cucumbers in my share lately so I have been trying them out in dishes as the featured ingredient, which can be a lot of pressure for the mild cucumber. This pretty salad is a little bit sweet and spicy and a lot colorful. I served it as a side to spicy carnitas tacos (recipe coming soon!) and they went together very well – the sweetness of the mangos really complimented the pork, but I think it would be a good side for a grilled meat or fish dish as well.
This Kohlrabi Slaw is light, tangy and refreshing. I think it’s a great side dish to accompany Saturday grilling or your weekly standbys. You can make it ahead if you’re attending or hosting a party. It will keep it in your fridge for a couple days; dinner side one night- lunch snack the next day. This slaw uses 5 items from my share this week- which is great to get so many products from the share into one dish- and I love that all of the produce in this dish is directly from the farm, no supplements needed.
