What's in Your Box Week 19: Savory Vegetables

Hollygrove Market & Farm this past weekend had better than expected turnout with all of the Mardi Gras festivities rolling throughout the city. We hope you enjoyed your carnival as much as we did. We had a variety of savory vegetables in the box and we appreciate all of our members who were able to make the trip to pick up the box.

Also one of our Urban micro farmers, Philip Soulet, had an article featured in Where Y’at about the growing tide of backyard gardners in New Orleans and the importance of being sustainable. Check out the article: Backyard Gardens Proliferate.

This weeks recipe is inspired by the season’s last production of cauliflower and cabbage which makes use of 5 to 6 items included in your box. It is simple, tasty, and requires no cooking, just 20 minutes of chopping, dicing, and some slicing.

The Strawberry Vinaigrette is a contribution of Jim Bremer, who is the one man show of Excellent Produce, a speciality wholesale distributor to chefs in the city.

Enjoy!
