We might have turned over the page to the month of September, but the gardens continue to ripen with an abundance of late-summer gems, from luscious heirloom and cherry tomatoes to ripe, juicy melons and peaches. Also including zucchini, sweet peppers, cucumbers and Patty Pan squash, plus a beautiful bounty of herbs and greens, this week’s lineup is accented by such provisions as Pain au Levain bread, Italian olive oil and flaky sea salt, Harmony Field’s sheep’s milk feta and chicken eggs. Enjoy!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Baked Feta with Honey
A kick of honey lends a sweet touch to the salty cheese; serve with grilled bread crostini!
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 and robust dressing is wonderful tossed with pasta, or drizzled over steamed or grilled vegetables.
Cucumber & Melon 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.
