Its CSA season!!!! I’m super excited that this summer we are part of a CSA. For those of you who haven’t heard of a CSA, it stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and I’m sure there is formal definition, but basically it means some adorbs farmers bring you a box of their crops every week. And our little farmers are adorbs, trust.
This week they gave me garlic scapes! Squeeeeal!!! I’ve been waiting all year for these cuties. I first discovered them at the farmers market last year. If you can find them at your farmer’s market, they are worth fighting a skinny yuppy for. You can definitely take her.
Garlic scapes are the long curly green stem of the garlic bulb. Kinda like a cross between a green onion and garlic. Our farmer’s latest blog post does a good job of explaining them. I like to make garlic scape pesto out of these, and spread it on just about everything that’s not moving.

Let’s do this:
Combine everything together in your food processor and process for about a minute, stopping to scrape down sides when necessary.
This week I topped our salmon with it (also pictured: CSA mustard greens and arugula!):
And made a pesto tomato open-faced sandwich!
I already can’t wait to see what next week brings!!
