Summer Squash, Goat Cheese & Arugula Salad

Enjoy this simple main course salad inspired by my farm box!IMG_4137

Ingredients:

  • Summer squash, sliced in large chunks
  • Spring onion, sliced thinly
  • Arugula
  • Goat cheese
  • Dill
  • Coconut & Olive Oil

Steps:

  • Combine squash, onions, dill and oils in pan. Bake in preheated oven @ 350 for about 25 minutes (don’t overcook-they are better firm)
  • Pour over arugula
  • Top with goat cheese
  • Stir together–the oils and cheese will add flavor to the arugula

Happy Spring!

How I’m Using My Farm Box This Week

Here is what is cooking (or not cooking) at my house this week from my farm box ingredients:

  • Arugula: I am using the arugula for small salads every night and to garnish sandwiches. I also made a big dinner salad one night with arugula, strips of fajita beef and sugar snap peas from last week.
  • Strawberries: Delicious for desert!
  • Carrots:  I am adding carrot strips to salads and snacking on them in the car.
  • Peaches: So good as is and we may put them on the grill for a family barbeque.
  • Green Beans: These are perfect plain and I will make a simple dinner out them cooking them briefly with olive oil/salt and serving them over brown rice.
  • Zucchini: I will likely make my Zucchini Lasagna again or throw them on the grill (slice and brush on olive oil and spices). I also like to roast zucchini and have it for breakfast.
  • Red Onions: I am going to save these for next week when we start getting tomatoes so I can make a sauce.
  • Bunched Red Beets: I roasted these beets and have been adding them to salad. They are also very good for breakfast. I got strawberries in bulk last week from our farm and froze them. The frozen strawberries and beet greens with some almond milk and banana make a delicious smoothie.
  • Cherries: As is!
  • Apricots: As is!

I hope this post helps you with your farm box or in making a decision in subscribing to a Community Supported Agriculture program.
