1. Italian chopped salad (I could seriously eat this every day for lunch during the summer--so good!)
2. Blackberry sorbet (easy peasy, and so delicious)
4. Bread salad (you have to love the name--and the taste!)
5. Quick-fix barbecued fajitas (a nice twist on the usual)
6. Gazpacho salsa (using green pepper, I can rely solely on veggies from our garden!)
And I even created a marinade, which I will share in case you want to make some delicious kabobs!
Carrie's Teriyaki Marinade
2 T. lime juice
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. honey
dash cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. ginger
I marinated chunks of chicken for about 8 hours, and then skewered them alongside green pepper and pineapple. This marinade was a delicious complement, and made the chicken very tender and tasty.
In addition to the new ideas above, don't forget these summer classics I've shared before. Yum!
If you have any fabulous recipes using green peppers, we're getting a terrific harvest, and I prefer them fresh, so I'd love some new inspiration. We've been having lots of fajitas!
*In case you're wondering about the fairly random photo at the top of this post, I took that pic almost a year at a county fair. I thought Monica would enjoy seeing all those jars lined up. Since the picture has been sitting idle for so long, I thought I'd go ahead and insert it here since jams are definitely summer food, too! Speaking of, I tried a new kind of pectin this year for my strawberry jam. Has anyone else tried Pomona's?
