One of my favorite things about summer is the plethora of fresh local vegetables! I was late putting my garden in this year so I am relying on my local farmers to provide me with the fresh taste of summer that I crave. One of my favorite stops on my way home from work is Rosedale Farms. I practice great self control on this stop because I am so tempted to buy everything. Today, I was drawn to the organic cucumbers and the abundance of zucchini and yellow squash.
- fresh, peeled cucumber, 3 whole
- plain yogurt, 1 cup
- filtered water, 1 1/2 cups
- fresh mint, 1/2 cup
- garlic, 3 cloves
You can see the proportions here. Don’t worry about being too exact. You may not like garlic as much as I do (though that’s just hard for me to imagine) or prefer a more minty soup. This had a nice bite of garlic but the mint balanced it out nicely. I served it slightly chilled. However, it really tasted great the next day after the flavors had melded more.
Grilled Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Broccoli
- No real recipe here. Just slice up the vegetables, drizzle with olive oil and put in the grill pan. I like my vegetables to be nicely browned, so I close the lid and allow them to cook undisturbed for about 5 minutes at time before I toss them in the pan. When I like the way they look, I eat them!
This was a wonderful dinner! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
