Corn Has Arrived ! With the arrival of peaches and corn to add to the tomatoes, we present you with a delicious recipe for all three !
Peach, Corn and Tomato Salad (serves 4) 1-2 cups of ripe cherry or grape tomatoes, cut into quarters About 1 cup of ripe peach, diced 1 cup fresh corn kernels (do not cook, just slice off the cob) ¼ tsp kosher sale ¼ tsp black pepper ¼ cup Honey Vinaigrette (below) ½ cup feta cheese (or more as you like) Basil leaves for garnish
Mix all ingredients and finish with vinaigrette and feta and basil leaves. NOTE: mixing ingredients too far in advance of serving will make this very soggy. To keep the flavors freshest, keep all ingredients separate until ready to serve.
Honey Vinaigrette 1 cup vegetable oil (I use grapeseed) 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar 3 Tbsp honey 2 cloves of garlic, minced
Mix all ingredients and shake well to mix in the honey. Cover and set aside for 45 minutes to let the flavors combine. I placed in fridge overnight. Shake again before serving.
Music at the Market Esme and Kate played at the Market last week. That is Esme ringing the bell. They are part of the Milton Rotary Summer Music program in town.
Zucchini Along with certain other squashes and pumpkins, it belongs to the species Cucurbita Pepo. They can be dark or light green. In a culinary context, zucchini is treated as a vegetable. Botanically, zucchinis are fruits, a type of botanical berry called a "pepo", being the swollen ovary of the zucchini flower. Zucchini, like all squash, has its ancestry in the Americas. However, the varieties of squash typically called "zucchini" were developed in northern Italy in the second half of the 19th century, many generations after the introduction of cucurbits from the Americas in the early 16th century. See here for thirty different recipes.
