I was asked to make a guest appearance at the Kino'ole Street Farmers Market in Hilo yesterday. Yesterday was a special day also for the Kino'ole Market because it was celebrating being open for 2 years and has grown from a handfull of vendors to anywhere from 20 to 25 on any given Saturday
This market is known for vendors that sell their own farm grown produce or locally made products...no imports...so when I'm requested to make a guest appearance doing a food demo, I always try to demonstrate dishes made with as many ingredients grown or produced locally.
For this past Saturday, I chose to make a dish that can be served as a main entree for a brunch or luncheon or it can be made into a smaller version and served as a salad with a meal.
Tomato, Sashimi, Avocado Salad with Pesto & Chevre
