Tips for the Perfect Summer Salads with PA Veggies
Philadelphia, PA – Pennsylvania lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, kale, spinach, Swiss chard, beets and broccoli are all in-season in June, which means summer salad season is in full effect. The Pennsylvania Vegetable Marketing and Research Program (PVMRP, also known as PA Veggies) is helpfully sharing recipes for flavorful, nutritious salads on its website all summer long. In the newly posted Master Salad Guide, home cooks will find a host of salad-making tips, plus recipes for homemade Honey Vinaigrette and Green Goddess salad dressings. In another post, chef, cookbook author, television personality and Pennsylvania native Maria Liberati offers her recipe for a refreshing Pennsylvania summer corn salad, right in time for Pennsylvania sweet corn to come into season.
“For Pennsylvanians looking to shake up their traditional dinner salads, the PA Veggies blog is a one stop shop for delicious and nutritious salad ideas. We collect the best recipes from local chefs, food bloggers and farmers who know exactly what to do with Pennsylvania’s produce bounty,” said PA Veggies Executive Secretary William Troxell. “On our site, people can find recipes for everything from rainbow cauliflower salad to tomato strawberry salad. There are salads with flavor combinations to liven up any barbecue, picnic or dinner table.”
