All the signs of summer are in the share this week. One has been the return of the salsa pack to the share list (at least as a choice). Check out last year's blog for the definitive recipe for fresh salsa and roasted salsa. As the tomatillos start coming in we plan to have more available.
Other recipes that are filled with recent share items includes:
Green Bean, Potato and Onion Hash
Asian Green Beans
Garlicky Bread and Tomato Gratin
Carrot Ginger Salad
While not a share item, we farmers have been accumulating a small batch of green tomatoes this week. As we tie up the tomatoes, weed, hoe, and harvest, the occasional fruit falls to the ground. These greenies won't ripen but are still very edible. So tonight I fried some up to pair with a batch of fresh salsa. The ones we didn't use will be in the swap box.
Fried Green Tomatoes (or Summer Squash) with Salsa
Though we didn't try it, summer squash and zucchini should substitute nicely for green tomatoes.
2 to 3 medium tomatoes
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp summer savory
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Slice green tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick. Dip in egg and then dredge in corn meal/flour mix. Deep fry in skillet until brown a few minutes on each side in oil. Drain on paper towels. Top with fresh or roasted salsa.
