RECIPE RECOMMENDATION:



CSA Member Eileen wrote in with a gazpacho recipe she loves that uses lots of ingredients available in the current share:  

"Here’s my favorite gazpacho recipe that I made from last week’s share.  My friend garnishes it with a dollop of sour cream. I don’t think it needs it."
 
Chop the following items and put into a large bowl:
 
3 large tomatoes
1 green (or red or yellow) bell pepper
1 large cucumber ( I used about 5-6 of the small ones from last week’s share and didn’t peel them)
1 C chopped celery
½ C chopped green onions
2 avocados peeled, seeded and chopped
 
Blend the following together with either an immersion blender or a regular blender:
4 TBSP olive oil
5 TBSP red wine vinegar
2 jalapeno peppers ( I experiment and add later to determine the heat)
½ tsp black pepper
 
Add to the chopped vegetables then
 
Stir in 4 cups of tomato juice and mix with a large spoon.
 
Refrigerate overnight.
 
You can serve it with a dollop of sour cream and some tortilla chips on the side.


That's it for this week! Enjoy the share!
