I really look forward to my monthly order and pick-up from the Oklahoma Food Cooperative.
All of these great farmers, makers, and producers, from around our state growing things and making things for us to use and consume. All natural, chemical free, animals treated humanely, and food, grown responsibly.
Green Tomatoes! Green tomatoes from Arctic Farms which are hydroponically grown, and r the most beautiful and beautiful tasting green tomatoes out there. Since I discover them through The coop three months ago.. maybe four. I have continuously ordered them. Now they have other great produce, including butterhead lettuce which I also love, but by far my favorite has been their green tomatoes.
Yesterday our orders were ready for pick up, and today I made this salad. Huge happy smiles all around! It was a perfect salad and perfect for this time of year. Summer grilling at the lake or for summer holidays? Make this salad.
Check out Arctic Farms via the OSU-OKC Farmer’s Market every Saturday, via the Oklahoma Food Coop, or other options that they detail in their website.
