Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips

  • Eat this first: Lettuce, Cucumber, and Dill
  • Use romaine lettuce in salads and sandwiches, and add it as a topping for tacos! We've even seen some recipes for grilled romaine - see the recipe below to try it out!
  • Sweet onions can be used in a variety of sautéed dishes, but grilling them really brings out their amazing caramelized flavor.
  • Use up those cucumbers by eating them raw, pickling them, or using them in soups and sauces! Also try infusing them in water for a cooling drink.
  • Dill works well when paired with fish, soups, roasted veggies, and anything pickled! Check out this website for tips on storing and freezing fresh dill. 
  • Fresh garlic has a slightly milder taste and can be used anywhere you would use dried garlic, but there's a lot more you can do with it from the stalks to the cloves. Look at this post for ideas on how to make the most of fresh garlic.
