Welcome the hot, sunny days of August with a lineup of favorites fit for munching, mingling and lingering on the patio, from a housemade frittata kissed with sweet red peppers, potatoes and parsley (just reheat!) to our signature cobbler mix to pair with the first peaches of the season. Featuring a selection of produce ranging from Padrón peppers and heirloom tomatoes to eggplant and zucchini, plus Gruyère cheese bread, fig jam and fragrant herbs, this week’s lineup is bright and summer-fresh—pour a glass of fruity Chardonnay, slice up a peach and enjoy!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Blistered Padrón Peppers
These flavorful peppers make for a wonderful pre-dinner nibble!
Summer Peach & Heirloom Tomato Salad
Incredibly fresh and light, this colorful salad is accented by a robust heirloom tomato vinaigrette.
Grilled Heirloom Tomato Vinaigrette
In addition to this week’s salad, this bright dressing is wonderful tossed with pasta, or drizzled over steamed or grilled artichokes.
This rustic Provencal dish is summer in a bowl, crafted with zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes.
This traditional Tuscan relish is lovely on toasted crostini.
Purple Scallion Relish
This zesty relish from Martha Stewart adds flavor to the likes of grilled salmon, chicken and even flatbreads.
