Get Ready!

It’s gearing up to be another steamy summer. Better field test your hot weather recipes now to avoid mixing disappointment with that oppressive Arkansas heat. If you’re looking to add to your recipe repertoire, try this simple Turkish salad. Pinch some Arkansas Natural Produce purslane into bite-size bits. Mince a few cloves of Bussey-Scott Urban Garden’s garlic. Stir together with a generous amount of plain yogurt. Drizzle with a few drops of olive oil and enjoy! Top with fresh diced cucumber and/or cherry tomatoes for a not-so-authentic but thoroughly delicious variation. As an added bonus, purslane is packed with omega-3s.

If you neglected to order purslane and garlic, don’t panic! The Market is still open.
