Italian Chop Salad...

Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention...Thanks to the coop combo this week I came up with a new salad I love! I'm calling it my Italian Chop Salad...

Chop & toss the following ingredients:
lettuce, grape tomatoes, red onions, banana peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni, feta cheese, parmesan, red pepper flakes & oil and vinegar dressing.

Yum - I highly recommend. Enjoy...

Emily,
What is this coop you are always talking about?

My aunt & uncle belong to a neighborhood produce coop that has banded together to buy in bulk from the local growers assoc that sells to our area supermarkets. So every week we all pitch in and one of us goes down there around 5 am & shops for the whole group & parcels out everyone's stuff for the week.

Matt & I got a permanent "half order" spot about a month & a half ago - we've been a "permanent sub" for about 2-3 years waiting for a spot to open up.

So for about $7 a week we get a gigantic box of "surprise" fruits & vegetables. It's great. It's giving us a ton of variety and encouraging us to come up with and try new recipes to work our way through the fresh goodies in the box before the next one arrives.

This week our box brought us: lettuce, cilantro, spinach, grape tomatoes, zucchini, oranges, white grapes, peaches, plums & kiwi.
