Summer Splendor Recipes
Green beans to heirloom tomatoes, zucchini to baby artichokes, the summer hits just keep coming! This box celebrates summer with a plethora of locally-grown produce—yellow Romano beans, cucumbers, and Walla Walla bunched onions, as well as crisp Cegolaine lettuces and fragrant garden herbs—all accented by imported Italian pasta, sunflower seed-kissed multigrain bread, peppery edible flowers, farm-fresh eggs and a market bouquet to grace your table. So, slice up an apricot, thumb through the recipes and enjoy these summer gems to the fullest.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Braised Baby Artichokes
Simmered with white wine and chicken stock, these tender artichokes are melt-in-your-mouth tender. (Try spooning them over pasta with some freshly-grated Grana cheese!)
Carrots Marinated with Garlic & Oregano
This room-temperature dish packs in the flavor and makes for a lovely side dish on a warm day.
Green Bean Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette
Tossed with a Dijon mustard and sherry vinaigrette, these beans boast bright, zesty flavor.
Grilled Lemon-Garlic Zucchini
Brushed with a herb-kissed butter mixture, these zucchini slices pair well with grilled chicken, fish or steak.
Fennel & Lemon Relish
This crisp slaw from Alice Waters’ The Art of Simple Food II is excellent tossed with grilled veggies.
Grilled Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette
In addition to salad greens, this bright and robust dressing is wonderful tossed with pasta, or drizzled over steamed or grilled artichokes.
