The light and bright flavors of Greece lend themselves beautifully to this week’s box as luscious produce like lemons, frying peppers, zucchini and cucumbers continue to ripen during this sunny early fall. Take advantage of this bounty with a menu starring peppery Greek sausage, our signature chicken stock to incorporate into a traditional Avgolemono soup and savory Halloumi cheese fit for frying.
