Summer Produce Ideas

Summer Produce Ideas

Summer is the season of fresh, vibrant produce that just begs to be used in creative ways. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a kitchen newbie, there are plenty of fun ways to make the most of the delicious fruits and veggies that are in season. Here are some quirky ideas to get you started!

Grill 'Em Up!

Who says the grill is just for burgers and hot dogs? Throw some summer produce on there for a tasty twist! Try grilling up some peaches for a sweet and smoky dessert, or grill zucchini and eggplant for a flavorful side dish. The possibilities are endless!

Sip on Some Produce

Why not turn your summer produce into a refreshing drink? Blend up some watermelon for a cool and hydrating agua fresca, or muddle some berries for a fruity twist on a classic cocktail. Cheers to summer!

Get Pickling!

Preserve the flavors of summer by pickling your favorite produce. Pickled cucumbers, carrots, and even watermelon rinds make for tasty snacks and additions to salads. Plus, pickling is a fun and easy way to experiment in the kitchen!

Make a Produce Pizza

Forget the traditional toppings—pile your pizza high with summer produce instead! Think cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, and roasted peppers for a colorful and flavorful pie. It's a fun way to get your veggie fix while indulging in a classic comfort food.

So, next time you're at the farmer's market or grocery store, pick up some summer produce and get creative in the kitchen. Who knows what delicious and quirky dishes you'll come up with! Summer is the perfect time to play around with flavors and have fun with your food. 

Here are recipes I have personally cooked and saved to my pinterest page, based on what is in current produce deliveries! Three Bean Salad with green beans cooked but still crispy, and well chilled. Summer chilled beet soup! Cauliflower ceviche is perfect to make ahead and eat later, and is even better after a few days in the fridge to marinate. Easy quick pickles
