Brown Bag Apple Salad

Serve up this tasty summer salad that's filled with delicous fruit as a power lunch or a sweet desert!  Can be served with local granola and served on or with a side of your favorite local yogurt!


Sweet and Sour Cucumbers

This classic summertime recipe is the perfect picnic salad and pairs well with grilled meats, seafood and poultry, particularly Thai- or Mediterranean-inspired dishes. A few drops of sesame oil adds an Asian twist, or toss in some minced serrano pepper to spice it up.

Sweet Onion Panzanella

Chiffonade of fresh basil, seeded cucumber and flaked Parmesan or feta cheese are all common additions to this summery salad. The proportions of this bread and tomato salad are flexible; adjust them to your liking or based on what you have on hand. We used a prepared vinaigrette in this updated version of the classic dish, but you can replace it with a combination of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, if preferred.


This traditional Middle Eastern salad goes well with many Mediterranean-inspired dishes, like lentil soup, lemon chicken, lamb dishes or kebabs. Add chunks of feta cheese or Kalamata olives to add more complex flavors and serve with lemon wedges.

Thai Watermelon Salad with Crunchy Watermelon Rind

Most recipes that call for lemongrass only use the bulbous bottom parts, but here you can use the leftover top part of the stalks, or use 2 whole lemongrass stalks.  

Everyday Tomato Cucumber Salad

This is a fresh summer recipe, perfect for showcasing local produce (or produce from your own garden!). 

Roasted Rhubarb and Strawberry Salad

This salad, adapted from a recipe published in Eating Well magazine, uses the popular strawberry-rhubarb combo in a new way. Use local rhubarb, strawberries, spinach and goat cheese when possible!

Baby Greens and Beet Salad with Lemon Chia Dressing

The tart-sweet flavors of this salad and dressing complement rich and earthy main dishes and chewy hearth breads. Substitute baby spinach or mesclun mix for the baby greens or use feta in place of the goat cheese. Refrigerate any unused dressing for later use.

Mango Beet Salad

Local and global tastes combine in this tasty winter salad. If you happen to have a jar of pickled beets from last season's harvest, they can be used as an easy substitute for the quick-pickled beets in the recipe.
