If you pick up at Alder, then you know Bob. You can thank him for these babies. He grows them from seed and offers them to the CSA when they are ready to go in the ground. There is one in each box. Enjoy.

 Apple Avocado Salad Recipe

.    
 Peach Basil Avocado Balsamic Wrap or Skewers

(1 extra large wrap or use skewers to serve!)

1 small peach, sliced
1/2 avocado, sliced
handful of fresh basil leaves, shredded or chopped
balsamic dressing (below)
splash of lemon juice (optional)
additional greens/veggies/salad (optional)

balsamic dressing:
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar (thick /aged is my favorite)
pinch of salt
pinch of fine black pepper
1 tsp Dijon mustard AND/OR 1 Tbsp chopped onion (for added flavor depth)
optional: chopped herbs or additional spices

Directions:

1. Prep your peaches and avocado – toss together with an optional splash of lemon or orange juice. set aside.
2. Blend your dressing in a food processor or blender or mini chop blender. You can also double or triple the recipe and save some dressing for later – store in the fridge.
3. Warm wrap on stove top. I use a gas burner and simply heat the wrap over an open flame for about 5-10 seconds on each side. Be careful using this method! Make sure the wrap doesn’t catch on fire. A few charred bubbly edges is OK and tasty. You can also warm in the microwave or oven.
4. Toss your peaches, basil and avocado with a splash of dressing. Fill wrap. Add another drizzle of dressing if desired. But just a little goes a long way! Also add any additional veggies for a heartier salad-style wrap. (You may have leftover dressing fyi).
5. Roll wrap. Allow wrap to cool and “set” before slicing or it has a tendency to fall apart a bit due to the slick contents. … A handful of fluffy greens stuffed into the wrap would probably remedy this.
