Cottage Cheese and Avocado Rose Salad gives you a next-generation cottage cheese salad that kkips the 60s diet plate vibe with a medley of crunchy-fresh asparagus, sugar snap peas and cucumber served over baby greens topped with blueberries and a fresh-sliced avocado “rose." Of course, this salad is just as delicious topped with traditional sliced avocado, but why not put your knife skills to test with this edgy new on-trend presentation.
This Cal Italia-inspired pizza starts with rustic hand-shaped thin crust pizza dough baked bubbly hot topped with olive oil, fresh mozzarella cheese, Italian soppressata and sliced jalapenos. We added a California-fresh topping of sliced avocado seasoned with a shake of chili lime seasoning and crumbled queso fresco Mexican cheese for this bold & spicy appetizer pizza. Find chili lime seasoning, such as Tajin® Classico Seasoning, in the produce department.
Our non-traditional continental breakfast board includes sprouted whole grain toast with ripe mashed avocado served with an assortment of fresh fruit (the tart tangy flavor of blueberries are particularly delicious paired with avocado), toasted walnuts and cheese. We included a creamy melt-in-your-mouth chevre, but this breakfast would also taste great paired with salty feta or sliced gruyere cheese. Fresh brewed coffee (or tea) completes this “four star spa” continental breakfast. The perfect way to start a relaxing week-end in style, even if the rest of the day is hectic!
Pistachio and Mint Spring Custard uses freshly picked mint sprigs that have been strained into a vanilla custard to create a light, minty dessert. We paired it with pistachios, this year's nut of choice, to get a really unique flavor combination you and your guests will love.
Enjoy the crunchy-fresh, slightly sweet licorice flavor of fennel before the local winter through early spring growing season comes to an end. Fennel pairs well with citrus in this delightful spring salad with delicate marinated shrimp and early spring salad greens tossed in a fresh citrus vinaigrette.
Grilled Steak Salad with Green Garlic Chimichurri Vinaigrette is a wonderful way to welcome spring veggies to your table. Green garlic is in season and we are celebrating the arrival of this short-lived treat with a lively green garlic chimichurri vinaigrette.
Kohlrabi Fritters with Yogurt-Dill Sauce are great if you’ve discovered kohlrabi at your local farmer’s market or found it in your CSA delivery this spring! You now know what to do with it--this recipe is at least a great place to start. Similar to cabbage or cauliflower, kohlrabi can have a slightly bitter cruciferous flavor. Blended with the buttery flavor of shredded Yukon Gold potatoes, these fritters take on a mellow slightly nutty flavor.
Waffles with Raspberry Rhubarb Marmalade is a surprising solution to what to serve for a fun spring breakfast. Everyone knows rhubarb goes with strawberry, but we turned the tables and put raspberry in to create a unique marmalade that will give you a sweet touch at breakfast.

The leafy green tops of carrots are nothing to be afraid of, they are earthy in flavor and taste surprisingly similar to carrots! We blended our leafy tops with garlic, Parmesan, toasted almonds, honey and red wine vinegar for this delicate carrot top pesto.
This recipe could serve 4 as a main vegetarian dish, or 8 as a side dish paired with grilled shrimp, chicken or fish.
Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of fresh carrots and beets in this delicious vegetable salad.
