This Is a Salad Made Better by Pot
An elevated edible for your seasonal table
Fact: S.F. is home to the nation’s most inventive food community.
… as well as some reasonably elastic medical marijuana laws.
Naturally, the twain have met.
Today: a brief lesson on how to incorporate organic strawberry jam made with cannabis ice-water hash into your actual meal plan.
The answer involves an exclusive recipe for the most delightful vinaigrette you’re ever gonna eat.
The S.F.-based Flour Child Collective produces some of the city’s best edibles, from THC-enhanced granola to the aforementioned jam.
Their focus, according to founder Stephany Gocobachi: a mellow, relaxed experience that’s also “delicious and nourishing.”
Her jam is great with toast. But for an elevated application, she supplied us with an exclusive recipe for a Strawberry Balsamic Tarragon Vinaigrette. It’s slam-dunk easy. Says Gocobachi: “We love this dressing with a salad of fresh strawberries, sugar snap peas, little gem lettuces or romaine hearts and a sprinkle of a salty cheese like feta or ricotta salata. Doubles as a great sauce for roast chicken or seared salmon.”
Whip up a batch and we guarantee it’ll be the star of your upcoming picnic.
- 2 tablespoons Strawberry Flour Child Jam (appx. 15 mg of THC)
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- a few grinds of black pepper
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (we like McEvoy Ranch, an organic olive oil from Petaluma)
- 1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
In a small bowl, whisk together the Strawberry Flour Child Jam, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking, then the chopped tarragon. For a smoother texture, blend all of the ingredients together, adjusting the texture with a bit of oil, vinegar or water as needed, and seasoning with extra salt and pepper to taste.
You’ll find Flour Child’s edibles at these dispensaries; don’t forget your doctor’s note.
