Produce Box Vegetables: Potato, Onion, Cucumber

“When I was a kid, my mom would marinate cucumbers, red onions and canned potatoes in jarred creamy Italian dressing,” says Jamie Bissonnette. “I’m not saying she was a great cook, but creamy Italian dressing is still my favorite. I make a version of it for this salad.”

Quick Easy Pork Fried Rice with Corn and Shishito Peppers

Produce Box Vegetables: Corn, Shishito Peppers

Fried rice is like the hash of dinnertime. It’s the easiest and tastiest way to cleanse your fridge of leftovers. A couple of weeks back, my fridge happened to be full of leftover sous vide pork tenderloin. It’s also summer, which means that I have a near-endless supply of corn and shishito peppers in my fridge at all times (those two are fantastic partners in crime). Put it all together, and what do you get? This simple pork fried rice with charred corn and peppers.”
