Give it a try! Taste test at Lake Forest Elementary features local carrots and “Florida Dip”

LF3.5.15 hetrieditMatt and Arthur took the show on the road to Lake Forest Elementary School last week where students tried out their latest creation. Carrots came from their own garden at the Hub as well as The Family Garden Farm. They did a great job!

Eighty-two percent of the students who tried it, liked it!  Here’s the recipe if you want to give it a try:

Florida Dip

1 cup mashed avocado
1/8 cup green onion, chopped
1/4 cup kale,chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 – 3/4 cup water

Place all ingredients in food processor or blender with 1/4 cup of the water. Blend, adding just enough water to create a creamy dip. Serve with sweet local carrot sticks from the farmers market.

Enjoy!
