Tastes Like Summer Recipes

It’s officially summer, which means sun-soaked days, leisurely evenings and produce-packed meals on the patio. Fittingly, this week we’ve captured the tastes of early summer, from fresh jam made from locally-grown strawberries and a housemade pasta salad kissed with lemony bergamot to flaky smoked salmon caught by West Seattle’s own Loki Fish Company. Pair these with crisp shaved fennel, tangy rye bread and our mixed vegetable giardiniera, then sit back and enjoy the refreshing flavors of the season.

Here are a few recipe ideas for this week:
