CSA Recipes!!

Tonight I made the Fennel, Bean & Pasta Salad! I also made a Cucumber & Tomato Salad! I think they both turned out really well!! (These pictures were taken with my phone. Sorry they're not great looking foodie blog pictures.)

Fennel, Bean & Pasta Salad - I posted the recipe here.
This was really different! We had never had fennel before. My husband preferred to eat it heated up rather than chilled, but I ate it cold. It was good, I just don't think I'm a huge fan of fennel. I need to find some other ways to cook it to see if I like it better in different recipes!

Cucumber & Tomato Salad
Ingredients
Dashes of red-wine vinegar (to taste)
Pinch of sugar
Dash of olive oil
2 tomatoes
1 green cucumber
1 yellow cucumber
Handful of feta cheese
Handful of fresh, chopped thai basil

I just chopped this all up & mixed it together & voila!! It was delish!!!

CSA food used:
Fennel bulb
Cucumber
Lemon Cucumber
Tomatoes
Thai Basil
