Recipes and tips for using the Bountiful Baskets 3-26-16 Distribution and in-season produce.
I’m excited to get a basket this week as it’s been over a month since I’ve been able to participate – boo! The offerings this week were very tempting, especially with the Easter holiday dinner on the horizon. It’s so nice to have a variety of fresh produce available to accompany your meals. This week I contributed for the Conventional basket, Easter Hostess pack and the Salad Pack.
You’ve got your Bountiful Basket home, cleaned all your goodies and now comes the fun part – deciding what to make with all the awesome produce. If you didn’t get a basket, you can still use these recipes with produce you purchased at the farmer’s market or grocery store – it’s all in season now, readily available and prices out very well.
