Fresh From the Market – A Foodie Friday Recipe

The vegetables are finally coming in with great abundance.
Some of our current harvests

So much so that my every waking thought seems to be focused on some sort of vegetable…harvest…or processing vegetables…or better yet, EATING veggies!  I may have even had a dream or two about vegetables lately. And that’s really okay, particularly since that’s how we make our living.

With the abundance in mind, and being incredibly short on time, I thought I’d just share a recipe with you that a Market customer-friend shared last week.  I know for a fact that you can get everything necessary for it at the Market (hint: if you’re local, visit us at the Staunton/Augusta Farmers' Market) and I can assure you that we did indeed taste-test it first. The food is a definite perk of this job!

…so, here’s something new to try for the weekend.

Sarah B’s Easy-Peasy Veggie Slaw

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup chopped broccoli
1 cup chopped cauliflower
2 cups diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped red onion

Mix together first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add cabbage and remaining ingredients tossing well; cover and chill 2 hours.

“Easy peasy”
(quote from Sarah B as to the preparation of said slaw)

This slaw goes great with anything grilled, and is even tasty the next day for lunch.  (I’m all about the leftovers)

Thanks, Sarah B, for sharing!

Bon Apetit! 

Have a great weekend. 

…and don’t forget to check out your local Farmers’ Market.

just some of the goodies available last week

I'll be sharing this post over at  Tales of a Kansas Farm Mom's Country Fair Blog Party.  Go over and check it out! 


  1. Have written this out to try. Wish I could just pop in and buy the ingredients from YOUR Farmers' Market.

    1. I do hope you like it, Pat!
      Oh, it would be so much fun if you could come visit us at the Market!

  2. This looks fantastic! I love fresh veggies and salads. We have a way to go before things are ready in our garden, so a trip to the Farmer's Market may be in order. :)

    So glad you joined the Country Fair Blog Party this week!
