Pure Summer

Heirloom Tomatoes - Stone Hollow Farmstead - Harpersville, Alabama

This week’s CSA basket is pure summer: okra, peaches and cantaloupe. Tomatoes, watermelon and cucumbers are all hallmarks of the peak of the season. In fact, just rattling off these still-warm-from-the-ride-in-with-the-farmer ingredients call to mind a lovely summer salad.

Whisk together the juice and zest of two limes with a tablespoon of your favorite honey. Stir in a tablespoon of chopped fresh mint (or other herbs of your choice – why not try some Thai basil here?). Drizzle in ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil and whisk until combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper then toss with 2 cups cubed watermelon, 1 cup cubed cantaloupe, and 1 cup sliced tomatoes. Peel, seed and slice a cucumber and add to the salad, along with ¼ cup thinly sliced Vidalia onion. Chill until ready to serve. This is a very forgiving recipe and we encourage you to make it your own by adding more or less of your favorite produce. Slices of radish or celery would be a welcomed crunch here. Or toss in some cubed feta and red onion slices as well. We can imagine serving this with grilled bone-in chicken breasts or pork tenderloin for an easy weeknight meal.  

If you happen to have any leftover salad, why not toss in some cubed and toasted molasses wheat bread from Corey Hinkel for a modern version of the Italian summer classic, panzanella. Is there anything better than a no-oven-needed summer supper? We think not and are delighted to share this bounty with you, our customers.
