Hi Everyone -


CookShop is over, but the recipes live on! (and are pretty kid and picnic friendly) - so if you are searching for some budget-easy School PIcnic ideas for June 1st - attached here are some from our CookShop files:


Corn and Tomato Salsa with Veggie Scoops

Peachy Orange Salsa

Cucumber Yogurt Dip with Veggies

Rainbow Salad



There is lots of kale, parsley, bok choy, lettuces and radishes to be harvested from the roof this week, when the weather permits us.  Ideally, this would happen Thursday 5/31  between 1:30pm and 3:30pm, however we will have to watch the weather forecast. . . stay tuned!


And here's another cool picnic beverage idea, that uses a lot of greens!


Green Lemonade

1 cup lemon juice (about 6 lemons), fresh squeezed and lemon peels reserved

2 cups hot water

2 cups cold water

5 pieces of kale, ribs removed

Small handful of parsley

Small handful of mint

3 tbsp. agave nectar

Juice the lemons. Put all of the used halves into a bowl and cover with 2 cups of hot water. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Strain into a blender and add the lemon juice, cold water, kale, parsley, mint and agave. Puree fully and strain. Pour into a pitcher and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
