"This confit is a sweet, sharp and slightly peppery relish, with a glorious pink colour. Try it with fish, with meat (it's lovely with lamb) and even with bread and cheese."
These delightful rolls are simply slices of prosciutto wrapped around a bit of lightly dressed arugula salad - an easy and tempting appetizer.
The butterhead lettuce and arugula combine with the pears and walnuts to make a slightly sweet but very sumptuous salad.
Quick, easy and tasty!
A quick dinner utilizing quintessential WI spring produce: fiddleheads and ramps.
A delicious springtime tart, perfect for a weekend brunch!
“This is a really easy way to enjoy ramps (also known as wild leeks) in springtime. The origins of this recipe are Italian, where they call this method, agrodolce, or sweet-and-sour. How easy is this? It’s just sauteed ramps or baby leeks, simmered in a mixture of white wine vinegar and honey.”
“This earthy salad recipe is adapted from Elizabeth Schneider's Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables (Perennial Library 1986). The sourness of the sorrel and bitterness of the endive are countered by the sweetness of balsamic vinegar and walnuts.” – NPR.com
Don’t cook sorrel for extended periods of time in cast iron pots/pans… the acidity of the sorrel reacts with the iron and creates a metallic-tasting dish!
A quick and delightful meal!
Enjoy this savory miso soup as an appetizer or a main course. The tofu makes this dish more substantial, while the snow peas give it a springtime flavor that is sure to make your taste buds happy!
“Perfect to celebrate the first mushrooms of spring.” – Sarah Myers
This springtime risotto is totally worth the effort of cooking it.
Spring is in the air and I for one am ready to head outside and fire up the grill! Be sure to hold onto this gem for more grilling throughout the summer.
When making this soup, keep in mind that the spicy flavors will increase as time goes on!
Here’s a crucial tip: don’t use hot rice!! This is the perfect dish to use on that day old rice you have lying around in the fridge. I highly recommend using short grain brown rice- it gives it a sumptuous, chewy texture.
A longtime Deli favorite!

An awesome homemade Reuben Sandwich.
This aromatic cabbage, sauerkraut, and sausage stew hails from Central Eurpoe and is also known as bigos. Serve with potatoes and rye bread for a traditional take on this dish, or for a lighter meal, with a fresh green salad.
Great with chopped veggies, pita chips, or on sandwiches. Yummy!
YUM! We highly recommend using the Co-op's pre-made pizza dough for the crust of this tasty entree.
“Most people have had avocado in a salty and/or spicy format, or at least as an accompaniment to something that is not primarily sweet. If you like avocado, however, you will really enjoy this ice cream. Its natural oil gives the ice cream a very smooth and silk mouth feel, and the lime juice heightens its flavor. Although it may taste too sweet before freezing in the ice cream maker, it will be just right when it’s done.” –Fany Gerson, author of My Sweet Mexico
A delicious way to enjoy celeriac and kohlrabi! Serves 4-6 as a side dish, 2-3 as a light lunch with salad
A rich and indulgent breakfast treat from our friends at MACSAC!
“Ladling this delicate, vegetable-laden chowder over toasted bread raises it to main-course status. If you don’t want such a hearty dish, use a little less liquid and a few croutons to finish. Use only white endives for this soup. Red ones will make it look very dingy indeed.” –Deborah Madison
Charming kumquats make for excellent salsa! Spoon over the usual quesadilla, munch with chips, or serve over a protein of your choice. Play with the ingredients- add whatever attracts your notice!
This dish combines the unique flavor of kumquats with the sweetness of prunes. Served over rice or couscous, this fragrant dish makes a delightful dinner. The chicken and sauce can be made up to one day ahead of time. When ready to serve, re-warm over medium heat, covered.
Did you know kumquats are one of the only citrus fruits you can eat whole? Experiment with the dressing in this tasty and simple slaw until it suits your fancy. The sweet/tart combination of the kumquat fruit and rind contrast beautifully with the crunch of the red cabbage!
