July Produce: What’s In Season

Posted on by Jennie

July Produce | Garlic, My SoulYOU GUYS it’s July TOMORROW. How did that happen? I have no idea. One minute you’re cruising into Memorial Day, and the next it’s July 4th.

Here’s what you can look forward to this time of year:

Collards
Corn
Cucumber
Eggplant
Melons
Passion Fruit
Peas, Black-eyed
Spinach
Tomatoes

Now, this list I must admit is a little lacking because apparently I don’t cook enough of these things enough but here are some ideas on what to do with these seasonal items:

Falafel Salad | Garlic, My Soul

This falafel salad has tomatoes, cucumbers, and you can use spinach or arugula – seasonal score!

Southwestern Side Salad | Garlic, My Soul

This Southwestern Salad features corn, tomatoes, and other seasonal veggies, too, and it’s the perfect thing to bring to a BBQ this coming weekend!

Salmon Walnut Salad | Garlic, My Soul

And, finally, this Salmon Walnut Salad features spinach as well as blueberries which are so sweet this time of year – the perfect summer salad for a light dish that doesn’t require too much heat.

Looks like I need to get on making eggplant, black eye peas, and collards soon. What is your favorite July produce dish?


 

Yum
