Lemon Chive Chicken Salad Recipe

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Cooking

Lemon Chive Chicken Salad RecipeAs the weather turns warmer, the promise of CSAs are in the air.  Community supported agriculture  is such a brilliant concept but I have yet to support any local farms by joining a CSA since I garden so much myself. However, this year I noticed that a local farm I love is offering a poultry CSA including local, humanely raised chicken, eggs, and even turkey.  This may be my first year of joining a CSA and I’m excited.


What is a CSA?
CSAs allow you to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. CSA members or subscribers pay at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they receive weekly shares of vegetables and fruit. Often, CSAs also include herbs, honey, eggs, dairy products, and meat, in addition to conventional produce offerings.

One of the ways we show case the local Vermont chicken we serve at Green Mountain at Fox Run is in a lemon chive chicken salad, which is always a hit.  The recipe is simple and delicious; give it a try. You can also add some diced carrots, peppers and onions and turn it into a great sandwich.
