Pepper, Cucumber, and Chickpea Salad Recipe

Produce Box Vegetables: Cucumbers, Sweet Peppers, Add: Sweet Corn Kernels

“A bright cumin-lemon dressing works well with any thin-skinned pepper. Try a rainbow of them, or focus on one palette, like yellow-orange. To turn the salad into dinner, add hard-cooked eggs and thin strips of salami.

Sweet Potato Curry

Produce Box Vegetables: Sweet Potatoes (or Acorn Squash), Add: Roasted Eggplant, Cubed Summer Squash

“This one-dish wonder grants you immunity from even the most gluten-averse, meat-abstaining, fat-conscious houseguests. And it tastes as good as ever reheated.”

Fresh Mango Salsa

Produce Box Vegetables: Mango, Sweet Peppers, Add: Diced Peeled Apples

“This simple and colorful mango salsa is super easy to make! It’s sweet, spicy and absolutely delicious. Serve this fresh mango salsa with chips, on tacos or salads, or as a salad itself. It’s that good. Recipe yields about 3 cups salsa.”

Senegalese Okra Stew

Produce Box Vegetables: Okra, Butternut Squash (or Sweet Potatoes), Add: Chopped Green Beans and Diced Shishitos 

“This vegetarian stew is rich and satisfying. Its creamy texture comes from the cashew butter that’s stirred in at the end.”
