Cucumber And Carrot Pasta With Crispy Shallots via Bon Appetit
I’ve never thought about putting cucumbers in pasta. Sounds really yummy! Garlic and ginger never hurt, either.
Corn Salad with Feta and Walnuts via Real Simple
This recipe sounds amazing. I’m a sucker for anything with feta cheese – I’m kind of obsessed.
Refrigerator Dill Pickles via The Kitchn
I used this recipe for my first attempt at making dill pickles, and they turned out AWESOME. I think this is the perfect recipe for newbies. These refrigerator pickles don’t involve a complicated canning process, which is great. They need to be eaten within a few weeks, but that’s not a problem in our house 😉
Best Ever Homemade Salsa via Nature + Nurture
This is our go-to salsa recipe which we have perfected over the course of nine years. I could pretty much eat the entire jar in one sitting.
Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Zucchini, Squash, and Tomatoes via Cooking Classy
This one doesn’t even need an explanation. Oh. My. Goodness.
Purple Hull Pea Salad via Homesick Texan
This salad sounds flavorful and hearty. The recipe also incorporates tomato and jalapeno from the garden. Triple win!
Lemon Rosemary Roast Potatoes via Just Easy Recipes
Roast potatoes are one of life’s greatest simple pleasures. We made some from our garden a couple of weeks ago – better than any french fry could be.
Roasted Okra with Garlic Butter via Steele House Kitchen
I’m not a huge okra fan (unless it’s fried), but this recipe sounds scrumptious. Can’t wait to try it!
Tomato, Cucumber, & Onion Salad via Nature + Nurture
This is my favorite salad of all time. Savory, juicy, crunchy… you’ll want to eat this every day.
