Last Saturday I went to the Farmer's Market and came home with a lovely bunch of produce. I did not have a plan before going the market, I just decided on the spot what to buy based on what was in season and looked pretty!
When I got home, I then washed the produce and decided my "farm to table" game plan. This is what I did:
Tomatoes: Served each night with dinner as side. Sliced with a dollop of mayo and sprinkled with coarse salt and fresh black pepper. This is delicious and one of my favorite summer treats. It taste the best when using tomatoes fresh from the garden, or in this case, the Farmer's Market!
Cucumbers: Served each night with dinner as side. Sliced in circles and places in bowl with 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. My take on creating a fresh and crunchy pickle.
Beets: Served as a side with dinner. Cleaned and sliced and boiled in water. Greens cut off and saved for another night. Strained the beets and sprinkled with salt.
Kale: Fresh kale salad
Peaches: Homemade peach crostada, served as dessert after dinner.
It is enjoyable to go and pick produce on the spot and then come up with a dinner plan based on what has been purchased. What are your farm to table favorites?
