Featured Vendor: Roy and RT’s Kitchen and Garden

Every Saturday morning, you’ll see many people head directly to the tent of Roy and RT’s Kitchen and Garden to purchase home-made, hot-to-serve veggie fritters, egg rolls, iced tea, and smoothies. They also sell fresh-picked and cleaned lettuce by the bowl that can be used as a ready-to-make salad.

It’s obvious from the persistent smiles on their faces that the Caspari’s are delighted to meet their neighbors at the market. Their customers are also delighted by the delicious already made food they can eat at the picnic table under the shade trees or take in a to-go box.

Recipe of the Week: Zucchini Noodles (aka Fideos de Calabacin)

Using a vegetable peeler, carefully slice the zucchini lengthwise, starting at one end and ending on the other end. As you peel closer to the center of the zucchini, turn the zucchini over and start peeling again from the opposite side. You can use a sharp knife like those from to cut slices into thinner strips if you like, though a julienne peeler makes for the most consistent, skinny strips. These “noodles” are great COLD as a salad or HOT as a low-calorie substitute for pasta.

COLD ZUCCHINI SALAD: Make a dressing of juice from one lemon (about 3 tablespoons), 4 tablespoons olive oil, and 1/2 cup sliced or chopped fresh herbs (basil, mint, and/or parsley). Toss raw “noodles” with dressing and let marinate for 15 to 30 minutes. Variations: Toss with three to four handfuls of lettuce or arugula. Sprinkle on 1/4 cup crumbled feta.

HOT ZUCCHINI “PASTA”: Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add zucchini/squash “noodles” to the boiling water and cook very quickly, just one to two minutes until tender, but not mushy. Drain then toss with a little butter or olive oil, fresh herbs, and fresh peas or cherry tomatoes. You can also simply top with your favorite pasta sauce (or make some fresh pasta sauce with fresh tomatoes, the chopped up remains of your zucchini, herbs, and lots of garlic).
