Title: Grown Local

by Charlie Dyjak, Baltimore County Office of Communications Intern

Summer is here and with summer comes the opportunity to buy fresh produce at your local farmers market. Baltimore County is home to 13 different farmers markets approved by the Maryland Farmers Market Association, so there is always one close to home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer salads, BLTs, and seared vegetables are delicious summer entrees. When prepared with the fresh ingredients found at farmers markets, these dishes are out of this world. A good dish always starts with the best ingredients and the fresh, crisp tastes of locally grown produce cannot be matched.

Pick up these fresh ingredients at your local farmers market for a quick, light tomato and cucumber summer salad.

Cut 4 cucumbers into slices

Chop 4 tomatoes into bite size pieces

Dice a red onion

Toss together in a bowl and drizzle on olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Sprinkle in salt to your liking.

If you want to go “recipe-free,” just buy a juicy peach or tomato and eat it whole.
