This isn’t just yearning for eating with a bunch of people like we did in the time before the pandemic. I want a world, the place where I live, that has a seat at the table for everyone. And when there’s a crowd, we all need to work together to make room for everybody.
Today we’re helping to make more room for another underheard voice from our food community. Michelle Braxton of Supper With Michelle brightens traditional pesto with a splash of vinegar for a simple, tasty dressing.
Mix all ingredients in blender or food processor in the order listed.
Use this pesto for any salad, or spoon it over grilled vegetables. Make a big batch while fresh basil is abundant and freeze it for a taste of summer later in the year.
Introducing our first RGF Fresh Box, a new subscription service that brings you a mix of our delicious things. For $40, we cram the box with $50 worth of Real Good products, from the staples we eat every day to our newest favorite condiment (yes, we’re fickle). We’ll continue to highlight new producers from Portland and the US, as well as new discoveries and old-world standbys from across the globe.
For June we’re donating 50% of the RGF Fresh Box proceeds to local, Black-led organizations working at the intersection of food and justice.
