- Cilantro: Pungent, fresh, and down right tasty. Your cilantro this week comes with it’s root attached will help with keeping it fresh for longer. The root has a milder flavor and aroma than the leaves and stems and are used in many Thai dishes, such as curry.
- Kale, Lacinato: Also known as dinosaur kale or black Italian kale, this dark green variety is delicious raw in a robust kale salad or cooked up in your favorite kale dish.
- Onions, Walla Walla Sweets: As the name suggests, these onions are much sweeter than your typical white or yellow storage onion. They can be used in any recipe calling for onion, but try using them in recipes that will let their flavor shine through. For true onion lovers, they can be sliced and eaten raw on salads and sandwiches. Nothing tastes better than sweet onion rings, or use them in stir-fries, stews, pastas, or on pizza.
