What is your favorite summer veggie? Let us know below!

One of my favorite parts of the drive between Asheville and Lake Lure is making a pit stop at Flying Cloud Farm's self serve produce stand. It’s always open and I love the idea of getting veggies that were grown less than 10 miles from my home. I hit the jackpot on this stop and found my favorite summer vegetable, the pattypan squash. I usually eat it raw in salads or a simple quick grill with s&p and a little olive oil. The blueberries are going in a summer berry salad (stay tuned for that recipe!), I’ll be making “the best kale salad ever” since I haven’t made it in 2 weeks, cauliflower will be roasted on the grill since I hate turning on my oven in this kind of heat and the garlic scapes will go on everything (a mild garlic flavor, they can be used in place of green onions)!
