Willy Street Co-op Recipes

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!
