The light and bright flavors of Greece lend themselves beautifully to this week’s box as favorites like cucumbers, snap peas and summer squash all begin their summer ripening. Take advantage of this bounty with a menu starring freshly-baked focaccia bread and imported extra virgin olive for dipping, plus briny Kalamata olives, gorgeous sheep’s milk feta cheese and fragrant oregano, all to incorporate into a Greek village salad along with your choice of produce.
