I love gazpacho, especially when it’s as hot as it is right now. This recipe is from “Julia Reed’s South: Spirited Entertaining and High-Style Fun All Year Long.” There’s the gazpacho and then there’s a sherbet. You can make one or the other, or both – but it’s a very impressive combination if you can make the time to do the sherbet. Gazpacho goes together in minutes.
This is a recipe from Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian.” In his notes he says, “Beets, like carrots, can be eaten raw. And they’re delicious that way, crunchy and sweet. So sweet, in fact, that they need a strongly acidic dressing like this one for balance.”
If you don’t have shallot, finely dice a little bit of the yellow-skinned onion in today’s box.
I wish I remembered where this came from. But it’s a great way to use the corn and peppers from today’s box. We don’t have field peas yet, but I’m betting we’ll see some soon. And this is delicious without field peas – so consider maybe dicing up a zucchini if you have one left from last week. It’s an easy recipe for a slow cooker.
There are a couple of pickled green bean recipes. Here’s one more from the food blog Popsugar. If you don’t have all the spices, it’s ok. Just use what’s at hand. And if you just want to turn these into refrigerator pickles, then you can skip the information about sterilizing and processing the jar and just refrigerate after the brine has cooled.
You can multiply this recipe by the number of jars of beans you want to fill.
New York Times ran a series on mocktails and I particularly like this one.
Craig Richards of St. Cecilia demoed this recipe at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Love the combination of melon, cucumber and peppers.
No idea where this recipe came from, but I am more and more in love with dried fruit in salads. With the nutty flavors of Parmesan? Yum.
This recipe was in Saveur magazine. I would never have thought of peaches and green beans, but it’s truly delicious. Just as good with basil or parsley as with the oregano.
Everyone needs one more deviled egg recipe. Right? This one’s from something called “Homestyle Family Favorites Annual Recipes 2008.” They use just a few of the egg yolks in order to reduce the cholesterol in the deviled eggs. If that’s not an issue in your family, then keep them all!
