As you know we are now members of a Community Supported Agriculture co-op and get a box of locally grown produce each week .
Each week the box is filled with a variety of fruits but mostly vegetables. We had been weighing the decision to become part of a CSA for about 4 years but was always concerned about giving up the choice over what produce we’d eat each week.
We have already budgeted about $35 a week for fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables and have really enjoyed the selection and prices at our local Aldi, but driving 20 minutes round-trip each week was wearing on me.
Germaine and I are both in a busy season of life right now and thought it made more sense to just eat around whatever comes in the CSA box.
We bought a medium share for $35 a week but supplement the share with frozen fruit and fresh fruit when I do feel like driving to Aldi.
This week’s box did include some strawberries which I decided to use in a salad.
Adding fruit to salad makes eating salad more enjoyable for my kids so from time to time I add fruits like raisins, grapes, oranges, cantaloupe, watermelon or strawberries.
There’s no limit to what kind of fruit can be added.
Here’s how I made my strawberry salad.
1 lb. Salad greens 6-10 strawberries diced 1 cucumber diced 2 teaspoons of raw sunflower seeds 4 tablespoons Italian Salad Dressing 1 teaspoon Agave nectar or honey Salt & pepper
I simply added everything in a large bowl and tossed.
If you are trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in your diet I hope this post inspired you to make a strawberry salad.
