Salsa and Vegetable Dip Recipes from Fair Share Farm

| 8/23/2011 9:51:50 AM

Since starting my apprenticeship at Fair Share Farm, an organic CSA vegetable farm that hands out shares of its weekly crop to its members, finding tasty and easy ways to use up my share of the bounty before it spoils has become a welcome daily challenge. This part of the season yields mounds of delicious produce, including tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers and eggplant, so I’ve been making lots of salsas and dips for my friends and myself.

All it takes are a few tomatillos, an heirloom tomato, an onion, a jalapeno and a few cloves of garlic to make an amazing salsa. You can blend your produce raw, but I love the smoky flavor of roasted veggies. Photo By Dani Hurst.
