Lettuce makes great salads. Y'all don't need a recipe for that.
Basil and garlic make great pesto. I use whatever nuts and hard cheese I have on hand. Usually I don't add lemon juice, but you could if you like that sort of thing. This pesto went on pizza. It was AMAZINGLY delicious. (Did you notice that 'amazingly' was both capitalized and italicized? Yeah, it was that good.) I wish I'd had the foresight to take a picture.
Steamed green beans go with everything, and basil-scallion-potato salad goes great with either sausages or grilled chicken. We prefer a room temperature, vinegar, oil and mustard type potato salad (German style, maybe?). However, I also made a cold potato salad last week that had fava beans and a small amount of mayo. It was good, but not my favorite.
I ended up wilting the chard and eating it with fried egg, tomatoes and sriracha.
There were only two cucumbers, and one never made it to the car - my kid ate it while we bagged the rest of our goodies.
Some garlic and cilantro went into a fantastic cold orzo salad of corn, black beans, tomatoes, lime juice, plain yogurt and S&P to taste. It was served with grilled, barbecued chicken. It was pretty - I wish I'd taken a photo.
Garlic and scallions were involved in the best marinade for pork tenderloin. I will NOT neglect a photo next time. I promise. It included broccoli and a quinoa salad of feta, cucumbers, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and S&P to taste. So ridiculously good.
Lastly, summer squash/zucchini found it's way into three easy meals. One was a plain old-fashioned summah dinnah of grilled chicken, green beans, grilled squash, grilled corn and watermelon. Next up was a ground turkey hash that included zucchini, fennel, garlic, tomatoes, corn, black beans, spinach and cabbage. I basically threw in all the little bits and pieces of
