Even though I’m not a vegetarian, I find side dishes generally more interesting and exciting than the main dish, especially in the summer when fruits and vegetables are so abundant. My ideal meal for a dinner party is grilled salmon or chicken, accompanied by a bunch of great salads.
One of my favorites things about summer is the return of the Farmers' Markets. These markets are a great opportunity for my kids and I to explore various fruits and vegetables as well as taste local food delights. Recently we visited the Belmont Farmers' Market and gobbled up tasty sweet plums and enlisted the kids to help me find the perfect tomatoes for my husband.
Visiting the Farmers' Markets also gives us a chance to try new recipes together. Two of my family’s favorite ChopChop tomato recipes are Tomato Toast Salad and Greek Salad Kabobs. I look forward to these deliciously fun outings!
