Irresistible Recipes for May Fruits & Vegetables

Be thankful for those April showers because my how our gardens grow in May! Farmers markets are really starting to have a bounty of fresh spring and early summer fruits and vegetables, and even the grocery store produce section is filling out nicely.

If you’re not a veggie eater in the winter, you’ve got no excuses in the summer. This weather just begs for fresh, crunchy, bright vegetables to be devoured. And the fact that you can use your grill makes them even tastier. Last night for dinner we had the grill piled with corn on the cob, bell peppers, and zucchini. Talk about tasting the rainbow!

The list of fruits and veggies coming in to season in May is getting longer, and within the next few months, you’ll be able to eat more in-season summer produce than you’ll know what to do with.

For May, ease in to it with:

Fruits – watermelon, plums, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, rhubarb, tomatoes

Vegetables – corn, lettuce, spinach, zucchini, asparagus, carrots

These recipes will give you all the inspiration and direction you need for savoring every last bite of your weekly run to the farmers market or even your own backyard harvest.
