Local Meal Pic of the Moment

September 3, 2009 at 9:02 pm

Cooking from a combination of a CSA box and whatever you think is a good deal that week at the farmers market can make for some pretty interesting pairings.

Tonight’s dinner started with some Mexican flavors (roasted corn, roasted poblano chiles, sauteed tropea onions, black zebra cherry tomatoes) and took a decidedly French/Provençal turn when those ingredients ran into a lentil salad with tarragon-mustard vinagrette and hard-cooked eggs.

So, CSA/Farmers Market fusion salad was born:

Warm lentil salad with roasted poblanos, corn, heirloom tomatoes, and tarragon mustard vinagrette

Not a bad dish at all and the only non-local pantry items were the lentils and mustard. From the most recent CSA delivery, I used some lettuce, corn, and eggs. The rest came from various stands at the Federal Plaza Farmers Market.

    Local lentils is one even I don’t have an answer for. I’d love to find it as they’re good and versatile.
