Off to the Farmer’s Market

Grilled Corn Panzanella

After an evening with family and friends at the Hanalei beach eating summer rolls, meatballs and moco-loco… and maybe a splash of wine… (Jamie)

And an evening with family and her three “summer sons,” Bend Elks baseball players, eating BBQ, potato salad and pie… and maybe a splash of wine… (Kristen)

We are going to crave fresh vegetables from the Farmer’s Market. Here’s a fun little way to prepare them. We’re not saying anything about putting that wine away, though…

Cut up all your fresh veg. Almost anything is good in panzanella: tomatoes, cucumber, basil, bell peppers, green beans, asparagus, corn and onions… and grill up the ones that need it.

Grilled and Mixed: Toss with oil and vinegar, salt and pepper.

The tomatoes will start to release their juices. This is when you want to throw in some homemade croutons. Cube your old baguette and toss with Herbs de Provence, olive oil, salt and pepper in a hot skillet.

Mmmm…. toss in homemade croutons.

Whether you have a veranda, a porch, a deck, a beach, a dock or a picket fenced in yard, go outside with someone you love. ♥
