How To Eat Your BOX! (Week of 5/7/17)

Limes

There are so many ways to enjoy limes! The traditional way is to use them in drinks, guacamole, etc. One of my favorites ways is to make quick pickled onions: thinly slice red onions and rinse. Add lime juice, salt, pepper and a touch of sugar. Let it sit for 30 minutes and enjoy over tacos, rice or salads!

Avocado

Guacamole is the first thing that comes to most people’s minds, but you can also enjoy avocados in smoothies, add it to toast, make a creamy salad dressing, chocolate mousse, or avocado fries. No wonder we go crazy for avocados!

Jicama

The options are endless: steam them, add them to stir-fry, or simply enjoy as a healthy snack lightly sprinkled with lime and chili powder. I love them in salads for that added crunch!
