The summer season plays host to an incredibly colorful lineup of seasonal produce. Bright red and yellow heirloom tomatoes, deep purple figs, wonderfully fragrant green basil, and juicy blueberries all share the stage in our local farmer’s markets and produce departments of our grocery stores. We think the best way to decide what to prepare during this summer is sometimes to simply pick a fruit or vegetable that looks particularly delicious and then find a recipe to highlight the incredible seasonal produce.
With such a diverse array of produce options comes a million recipes to experiment with for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even on-the go snacks. Here are some colorful and flavorful options featuring summertime stars to get you started.
