We've been moving through a few different potato varieties. I find the fingerlings to be the most firm of all of the ones we have had so far. They hold up really well for potato salad and are great roasted with a little tzatziki on the side. We have lots of recipes for everything in your CSA bags. This hot weather week I highly recommend trying the potato salad recipe that we have posted. www.cramptonsrecipes.com
I love watermelon, so eat it just as is, but there are so many recipes for fruit salad, Popsicles, mojitos, and cold melon soups out there. The sky is the limit!
Once again, ,the lovely ladies at Banville and Jones have some great ideas if you would like a glass of wine with your meal.
If one should choose to whip up a potato salad with their fingerling potatoes then a tasty dry rose would be just the ticket. The Cote Mas Rose ($11.99) from France would complement all the flavours in a potato salad and would also shine alongside a tasty watermelon, feta and mint salad.
Although we have suggested the Innocent Bystander Pink Moscato ($11.00/375ml) in previous pairings it seems a shame not to mention it again here! The subtle sweetness and gently bubble of this wine is a sure hit with fresh watermelon and blueberries. For something just a touch drier, but just as delicious, try the Bon Courage Sparkling Blush from South Africa at $15.99.
