Are you a member of a CSA? What do you receive in your baskets these days?

Yesterday, after working three long days, I sat in traffic on my way to pick up a complimentary CSA basket from Oxbow FarmYou will have to wait for a full write up on this opportunity and to see full contents of the box.

Last night, I didn’t have much more energy left in me other than to wash, chop, and drizzle, and so I made a semi-composed salad that reminded me of the Russian cucumber and radish salad with sour cream. 

I used two beautiful tomatoes from the basket – a deep rich red, almost purple with streaks of green, and a brightly yellow one.  The cucumber was surprisingly crisp and sweet.  I cut white radishes into wedges and added slices of avocado from my own basket.

For the dressing, I whisked together sour cream, sunflower oil, and lemon juice with a touch of salt and pepper.


To complete the dinner, I broke off a few chunks of baguette from Grand Central Bakery and poured a glass of wine.
