A little extra love from the Produce Box this week. Can you guess what vegetable this is?
Disclosure: I have received a Produce Box free of charge and I was not expected to write this post. I was not financially compensated form my time Opinions are my own.
It’s always a high point in my week, when I get my fruits and vegetables from the Produce Box. I love anticipating that little something extra that gets tuck in. This week, the lemon cucumbers grown by Johnston County farmer, Charles Tart, were the bomb. I ‘m blown away by this round yellow cucumber, with flavor that hints lemon. My recipe is below for how I used this cool cuke in a tzatziki sauce.
