Willy Street Co-op Recipes

Butter-Poached Stone Fruit

Use your favorite stone fruit or a combination for this delicious dish. It's yummy on it's own, but would also be nice paired with ice cream or yogurt, or stirred into oatmeal.

Stone Fruit Bars

This is a versatile dessert: use your favorite combination of stone fruit, like peaches and cherries, or apricots and nectarines. 

Cherry Ricotta Tart

If ricotta isn't your favorite, use lightly sweetened mascarpone instead, or even whipped cream!

Red Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is great immediately after assembling, but if you have a day to let the flavors develop in the refrigerator, it's even better!

Peach and Cornmeal Upside-down Cake

Dried lavender is optional but highly recommended here - it creates a perfect trio with the summery, ripe peaches, and the crunchy, golden cornmeal. You can find dried lavender in the Health and Wellness aisle with the bulk teas.

Summer Peach Salsa

This peach salsa is nice with tacos and tortill chips, but try it alongside anything grilled, too!

Peach Crisp

This delicious crumble-topped dessert lets the peaches shine.

Corn and Tomato Stuffed Avocados

If you don't want to heat up your kitchen with the oven, you can skip broiling these stuffed avocados - they're just as delicious at room temperature.

Big Sur Bakery Hide Bread

This recipe will result in something similar to an English muffin - only dense, and packed with seeds and grains. They must be toasted to be fully enjoyed.

Grilled Tomato and Basil Pizza

Using the Co-op's pizza dough makes this so easy! The following recipe is quite minimal, so use this as a starting point - try a more traditional one with tomato sauce, or pesto, and add meat if you like, or more vegetables. Once you've grilled pizza, you won't want to turn the oven on for the rest of the summer.

Creamy Green Goddess Dressing

This versatile, super-quick dressing is great because of its many variations. Instead of plain yogurt, use sour cream, mayonnaise, cream, or puréed soft tofu. Make it with a combination of parsley and tarragon one day, and the next use basil.

Max's Slaw

This is a delicious vegetable slaw that uses Willy Street Co-op's convenient packaged up Slaw Mix, available in Produce, and invented by Max of West Produce fame. The Slaw Mix incorporates green and red shredded cabbage, and carrots, with occasional appearances by beauty heart radishes, savoy cabbage, and yellow carrots, when available. The dressing in the recipe is quick to whip up, and you'll have a great dish on the table in no time!

Hibiscus Lemon Cooler

Refreshing, tart, and fruity, this delicious summer drink is great on a hot night. And I don't need to tell you how yummy it would be with a boozy addition!

Crispy Polenta with Mushrooms

Polenta is without a doubt very easy to make, but packaged rolls of pre-cooked and sliceable polenta are so convenient! In this recipe the polenta is topped with sautéed mushrooms deeply browned in butter and thyme, then simmered in white wine. 

Pickled Brussels Sprout Halves

These zingy pickled Brussels sprouts feature garlic, bay leaves, peppercorns, and mustard seeds, and would be a great accompaniment to a Bloody Mary!

Rhubarb Shrub

Shrubs are drinking vinegars that have been around since colonial times. They're an excellent way to preserve fresh produce, and are fun to experiment with. This particular version is less vinegar-y than many, and the tart rhubarb flavor really comes through.

Classic Apricot Jam

This beautiful, golden-hued jam is delicious on fresh bread with butter or stirred into plain yogurt, or of course, by the spoonful straight from the jar!

 

Strawberry Rhubarb Butter

This lovely, thick, spreadable fruit butter will deliver fresh spring flavors well into the winter months.
