Peppers! Peaches! Tomatoes! These late summer staples are arriving in abundance here in August and this week’s box celebrates them in all their sun-ripened glory, as well as other favorites such as artichokes, squash blossoms and Santa Claus melon. Also joining these summer all-stars: Fresh, handcrafted red pepper linguine from Bellingham Pasta Co., plus Pain au Levain bread, Grana-style cheese and a smooth Washington Syrah. Long live summer!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Fragrant Fried Herbs
Crisp-fried herbs are an unexpected (and delicious!) garnish for the likes of pastas, salads, soups and more.
Ricotta-Stuffed Fried Squash Blossoms
The ultimate summer starter, incredibly beautiful and flavorful.
Grilled Bread with Basil Pesto
A wonderful appetizer to serve with this week’s pasta supper!
Our Nonna Pat’s favorite way to serve artichokes!
Cracked pepper and a subtle lemon flavor perfectly accent these beautiful grilled artichokes.
Melon & Cucumber Salad with Basil
Juicy and incredibly crisp, this salad always receives rave reviews.
Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone, Pistachios & Balsamic Glaze
Peaches off the grill are a true summer delight—we particularly love this salty, sticky-sweet topping.
