Hooray for tomatoes and corn! This week, One Straw Farm CSA once again really brought the summertime goods. In addition to tomatoes and corn (another hooray!), other veggies included green peppers, cucumbers, Swiss chard, and a head of cabbage. Equally fragrant lemon basil and fennel rounded out the share. The recipe below features the chard and the corn, Mexican style . . . olé!
