Minted Quacamole

Hey Tara,

Been meaning to write this quick note to you before Round 2 began to say how life-enriching (not to mention taste bud-enriching) the Beachwood Canyon CSA program has been for me and my family. Tuesdays have become quite the event, chasing our four-year-old, empty shopping bags waving in the wind, over to your makeshift stand each afternoon and seeing the look of delight on his face every time Farmer John's bounty includes his faves--carrots, celery, cucumber and/or broccoli.

Can't wait to see what the spring session brings!

In the meantime, I've forwarded this tasty little recipe (originally from a Canadian food and drink magazine) that makes good use of a couple of this past week's items.

Bountifully yours,

Mike, Kim & Nicky


2 ripe avocados
2 tbsp lime juice
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint

1) Mash peeled, pitted avocados, leaving some chunkiness. Stir in remaining ingredients until combined. Serve with tortilla chips.
