Spray-free Collard Greens from Wild Earth Farms

Kale's southern cousin has quite a reputation! It tastes similar to kale, though a bit less bitter, with tough leaves and stems. The stems should be removed and cooked separately as they take longer, but are perfectly edible and tasty! Pair with rich meat, fats or proteins and cook down to bring out the sweet earthiness of this brassica! 

Spray Free Lettuce Mix from Jonothan Farms

The classic blend, but fresh and local!

We tried this salad and we loved BUT skip the dressing and give our pink vinaigrette a try. 

 

Organic Red New Potatoes from Oak Valley Farms
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Jumping potatoes are the go-to method/recipe of the summer (and forever). Simple, one-pot, and easy to incorporate ANY herb you like. 

 

Organic Bunched Onion Blue Lagoon

I mean, I don't know if this one even needs instructions. Sweet, organic local onions -- mix them into that galette, or if you're feeling adventurous, try a jam!

 

Organic Thyme Blue Lagoon

It has an earthy, minty, slightly lemony flavor. Try them with your Zucchinis

 

Zucchini from Jonothan Farms
Zucchini is also known as summer squash and it has a very mild taste that is slightly sweet, grassy, or green. Because of zucchini's mild flavour, it can be prepared in numerous ways, and it shows up in a wide variety of recipes.

Maybe let's give zucchini noodles  a come back!

 

Spray-free Field Cucumbers from Jonathan Farms 

The classic field cucumber. Heartier, with thicker skin than its English cousin, this cucumber often needs to be sliced and peeled (though many do prepare them to eat with the skins via pickling, maceration or other treatment!). Try them in a quick Asian salad

Spray-free Red or Green Cabbage from Jonathan Farms

Very healthy and very versatile -- most Manitobans are familiar with the all-too-comforting cabbage roll, but it's rarely the star of the show otherwise. Try flipping that script and give this beautiful brassica it's chance to shine! If you need some inspiration, try this Cabbage and Cucumber Salad recipe!

Spray Free Fennel from Blue Lagoon Organics

Ok so not everyone is a fan of licorice flavour but THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO FENNEL! We added it into an unbelievably fresh and delicious slaw with kohlrabi and granny smith apples For the pickier eaters, it is impossible not to love this version roasted with parm, via Giada De Laurentiis, too!
