Recipes for Summer Vegetables

Every season is special in its own way, and each has its own offerings of fresh produce. In this day and age, we can get most types of produce all year long from various sources. However, local, seasonal products are usually tastier and less expensive. For example, there is no comparison between the taste of tomatoes in winter and those from your own garden or local farmers. I have chosen vegetables that are available in summer and listed some of my favorite recipes for showcasing the produce in main dishes, side dishes and other presentations in which they are the main or key ingredient. Most of the recipes are quick, easy and healthy. Although there are other types of summer vegetables, what I chose are the most popular and very easy to find. The 'Mixed Vegetables' category lists recipes that utilize two or more of the featured items. This page does not include all of the recipes posted on Teri's Kitchen that use summer vegetables. You can find more using the search box above or by browsing the Site Index.
