Tammy McAfee


Culinary Resource Coordinator at Central Market Poulsbo

Tammy started dinner-party clubs in the late 1980s with other couples where the goal was to cook new types of food, enjoy an evening with friends and get some feedback. She is passionate about finding new ingredients and products to experiment with – guilt free! Her favorite aspect of the Resource Center is introducing customers to simple concepts - “It’s empowering for those who didn’t grow up cooking to learn some techniques,” she said. 

This refreshing summer salad not only showcases our fresh fruits while their peaking, it's also super flexible. Spoon a few generous helpings next to our Simple Summer Salmon, our Barbecue Ribs or some good ol' fashioned burgers and brats!

Trim your prep time! Slice the melon and jicama in half to create a flat surface. Then place cut-side down and gently slice away the outside, leaving the flesh of the produce intact. Now slice the melon into cubes and julienne the jicama into thin matchsticks. Done and done.
