TIPS & RECIPE IDEAS

Red Haven Peaches

These amazing peaches came from one of our favorite local farms, Huffman Fruit Farm, located at 13080 Lisbon Rd., in Salem. Red Haven peaches are usually the first freestone peaches to ripen. Read more about these delicious summer favorites here: https://www.eatlikenoone.com/red-haven-peaches.htm

Salsa Verde

Salsa verde is a type of spicy, green sauce in Mexican cuisine based on tomatillo and green chili peppers. This fresh, homemade salsa is great with chips, on a taco, as a salad topping, or try it in the easy salsa verde chicken dip below.

Leeks

Leeks look like overgrown green onions, but have a milder, more delicate flavor than onions. The white base and green stalk are used for cooking in creamy soups, fresh, stocks and more. After harvest, leeks can keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks -- or they can be dried for storage. Check out how to clean them properly here: https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_clean_leeks/

Then you can use an assortment of your tomatoes, a leek, and some thyme to create the fresh veggie combo below or try leek and thyme in a fish entrée.
