The light and bright flavors of Greece lend themselves beautifully to this week’s box as luscious produce like cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, peppers and zucchini begin their summer ripening. Take advantage of this bounty with a menu starring our signature chicken stock, organic chicken breasts and rice to incorporate into a traditional Avgolemono soup, plus pepperoncini, Kalamata olives and sheep’s milk feta to use in a Greek village salad.
