Whether tending to your veggie-filled garden or enjoying a fresh fruit salad at a barbeque with friends and family, it’s hard to miss the abundance of produce that summer brings. After all, what’s a classic warm weather day without a sweet slice of watermelon?
Farmers’ markets offer a rainbow of fresh options, from sun-kissed berries and juicy peaches to vine-ripened tomatoes and bright, crisp green beans, setting the perfect stage for local, clean eating. Eating summer foods during summer months means you’re getting them at their nutritional peak, and usually their lowest cost. So, take in all the colorful choices—these are some of our favorites—and experiment with new ways to enjoy them with recipes from the Canyon Ranch Kitchen.
Note: Be sure to thoroughly wash all produce before consuming, including organic fruits and vegetables.
