Recipes Using Summer Produce

It’s hard to believe that July is almost over already, but summer produce is definitely still in full swing!

July and August bring with them some incredible summer fruits and veggies including peaches, berries, watermelon, cucumbers, and more. These fruits and veggies taste best (and are cheapest!) when they’re in season, so now is the perfect time to load up on summer produce and enjoy the fresh flavors. 

To help you soak up the rest of the summer, I’ve put together some of my favorite recipes using summer produce – it’s time to hit the farmer’s market and get cooking!

    Wow, these are making my mouth water! I think I’m most excited about the watermelon recipes because it’s a fruit I associate so much with summer fun.
