Cooking & Storage Tips

Eat this first:

Watermelon Radishes! Under their pale green skin is a bright pink center. They’re really delicious for a crisp snack in hummus or dip! Or, pickle them for an extra crisp and crunchy snack.

Pea Shoots in the variety packages are a nutrient powerhouse - eat them ASAP for the best flavor and texture!

Recipes

Pickled Watermelon Radishes recipe by Food52 (one of our favorite sources for recipes!) This is an easy pickled radish recipe that uses only a few other ingredients that you likely already have at home! Pickled radishes will add an interesting and delicious acidic flavor to your meal.

Beet, Apple & Red Cabbage Salad with Feta recipe from Rhodes: This Beet, Apple & Red Cabbage Salad with Feta recipe is a combination that we love! The recipe we found might need a few adjustments to fit what you have on hand. Try out your own version!

Beet and Cabbage Sauerkraut from Feasting at Home: Want to try making your own fermented vegetables? Try this vibrant purple version of sauerkraut, made with red beets and red cabbage.

15-minute Stir Fried Steak Tacos from The Food Network: Beef Top Round, also known as stir fry steak, is great because it cooks quickly at high heat over a short amount of time. Use the beef top round in place of the skirt steak in this Food Network beef taco recipe! We suggest the watermelon radish, red onion, red cabbage, and feta from this week's share as possible toppings, and you can put it all in the All Souls corn tortillas. If you like, a salsa verde would also add some more flavor and spice to your taco.
