Fresh from the Garden

Fresh from the Garden
Whether harvested from your backyard garden or purchased from the farmers' market, summer's bountiful produce inspires a host of seasonal dishes. Taking a cue from what's in season, we offer some delicious recipes that celebrate garden-fresh ingredients.

For a simple starter to an alfresco meal, serve bruschetta topped with chopped tomatoes, aromatic basil, olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar. A Spanish-style eggplant salad pairs deliciously with grilled lamb, while cucumber salad enlivened with dill is a natural accompaniment to salmon. For an easy vegetarian entrée, serve garden skewers atop pasta or risotto.

And to help you savor the flavors of summer throughout the year, we're also featuring recipes for canning fresh fruits and vegetables.
