Carrots, Chard, Cucumber, Green Beans, Head Lettuce, Salad Mix, Scallions, Spring Onions, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Basil, Parsley
Carrots – Here is a basic recipe for Perfectly CookedCarrots. You could add any spices that would complement the rest of your menu.
Chard – Braising these greens will make for a great poolside dinner. This dish can be eaten at any temperature.
Cucumber – Food Network’s blog started Summerfest this week. Here are a bunch of great Cucumber recipes.
Green Beans – With all this heat, cold salads are welcome dishes. This Green Bean and ShallotSalad looks good.
Summer Squash and Zucchini – You can shred and freeze them or boil for 2 minutes, puree and freeze. With frozen puree I’ve been making these muffins for my kids. If I make them mini muffin size, they gobble them down.
Basil and Parsley – I love having this Salsa Verde around for just about anything – eggs, meat marinade, or mix with salad dressing, and so on.
