    I've been stuck on this one:
    Sliced cucumber
    Chopped broccoli
    Chopped onion
    Olive Oil
    Vinegar
    Stevia or Splenda to taste

    Strawberries, plain no-fat Greek yogurt, sliced almonds and a small squirt of agave syrup.

    We don't have local produce other than strawberries yet, but in a month I won't be able to get enough of field cucumbers, beefsteak tomatoes, scallions and dill with white balsamic vinegar.

    I have imported blueberries, blackberries and raspberries in the fridge. Our wild blueberries, which are tiny and bursting with flavour, are usually available in August.

    They said our blueberries would be coming earlier!!!

    Raspberries are too far behind. Luckily we have some of those...we even have wild black ones.

    I like mine prepared simply. We slice summer squashes an throw them on the grill with olive oil and sometimes adobo. same with asparagus. I made spinach today sauteed in a pan the same way. If it is local and fresh and in season, it doesn't need anything else.

    Grated summer squash (zucchini, Mexican squash, pattypan squash, yellow crookneck) sauteed in a small amount of butter and seasoned with freshly grated nutmeg.

    Baby summer squashes skewered whole, brushed with olive oil, and barbecued.

    Strawberries, thinly sliced beef, and baby spinach in a salad: one could add either freshly shaved parmesan or crumbled Gorgonzola. A very simple balsamic vinaigrette with a bit of extra cracked black pepper would go very nicely.

    Yummm, your salad sounds yummy, TG. I think I'll have one for lunch. My only change will be to replace your cheese suggestions with goat cheese.

    Mmmm, Diznee. Bet that strawberry shortcake won't last long at your house. It sure wouldn't here.

    My neighbor was outside grilling yesterday and told me he was grilling their vegetables for the week. He had maybe five different types on there, including eggplant. Good idea.

    I went to the farmers' market the other day and bought all kinds of yummy veg. I made a big ol' taco salad with lots of chopped veg. Delicious, and I got to use lots instead of having to decide.
