Go Green for St. Patty's Day

Go Green for St. Patty's Day

We are crazy for green veggies this St. Patty’s Day, especially cucumbers. So, Go Green with these leprechaun approved dishes.

Green Tomato Mozzarella Stacks – did you know that here at red sun farms we grow green tomatoes? We do! They are the perfect twist on the traditional Caprese salad, give your Italian salad a touch of Irish this St. Patty’s Day, thank you Kayln’s Kitchen for a fun new way to use our Green Tomatoes.

Cucumber water may be a nice change on St. Patrick’s Day; or how about these quick and delicious cucumber feta rolls from Good Life Eats? The feta cheese filling can double as a vegetable dip, for a festive go to use these shamrock peppers from NoBIGGIE for dipping.

Speaking of dips, this Healthy, Happy Life  leprechaun dip has us feeling lucky, full of beans, kale and healthy goodness, you can snack on it from day to night. Pair it with your favorite veggies like:  cucumber spears, grape tomatoes or pepper slices.

Get crafty in the kitchen with a shamrock cookie cutter. These Shamrock Tortilla shells  courtesy of Spiced, will be the perfect dipper for your leprechaun dip, or feta roll leftovers.

St. Patty’s day is the one day a year that it’s okay to play with your food, whether you’re arranging a veggie platter to look like a rainbow, a shamrock or leprechaun hat. Look at this recipe from Creative Food for leprechaun hats, use Red Sun Farms yellow bell peppers & cucumbers.

Dessert? Try this Inspired Edibles  green smoothie ice cream with hidden cucumbers, or this NutriLiving cucumber mint apple blast smoothie, for a good pick me up the day after St. Patty’s Day.
