News From The Market

Hot, hot, hot~~~ in this drippy, sticky atmosphere, stoves and ovens should be OFF. And that said, the Growers' Market is the very best place to find everything you need for a quick and refreshing grill-centered meal, to be eaten outside when the sun goes down! (Or inside in the cool air-conditioning...) We have everything from steaks to chops, corn, zucchini and tomatoes, fresh breads and cheeses~~~ you get the idea: keep it simple, keep it fresh, keep it cool! This week's recipe, Summer Vegetable "Ceviche," reflects just that attitude, and leaves lots of room for improvisation of ingredients.
To help us all take our mind off the heat while we shop, Woody Wolfe will be there, playing his numerous guitars and entertaining us with his incredible repertoire of songs we forgot we loved~~~ see you there!

Bloggers David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl of Stockholm came up with this refreshing idea of marinating vegetables in a lime-based dressing~~~ vary the vegetables according to availability for a refreshing way to eat!


1 cup fresh baby lima beans, or other shelling bean, or substitute shelled edamame
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 spring onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced
1 small shallot, thinly sliced
Sea salt
1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels, from 2 ears of corn
2 nectarines or peaches, thinly wedged
1 ripe Haas avocado, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large orange,red, or yellow sweet pepper, thinly sliced
1 pint heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

1. In a small saucepan of boiling water, cook the lima beans until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the lime zest and juice with the olive oil, spring onion, jalapeno, and shallot; season the dressing with the salt. Gently fold in the beans, corn, nectarine,avocado, sweet pepper and tomatoes, Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Fold in the cilantro just before serving, and serve immediately.
