If you haven’t yet had a chance to visit one of your local farmer’s markets yet, you should. Not only is it important to buy local and support local agriculture, but nothing is better than spending the morning taking in the sweet, just-picked aromas of fresh fruits and vegetables while talking with local vendors out in the sunshine.
Depending on where you live, peach season is getting into swing. Even if you don’t yet have farm fresh peaches available, you can still find good ones at your grocery store. In this recipe for Fresh Peach and Grilled Vegetable Salad, the succulent sweetness of the peaches pair extremely well with the earthy flavors of asparagus, onions, mushrooms, basil, and greens (topped with creamy goat cheese). Even better than buying your produce outdoors is cooking up, serving, and enjoying what you’ve made al fresco!
