In Season: Cucumbers and Peppers

Soon we will be fortunate enough to have cucumbers and peppers growing in local gardens. In anticipation of garden fresh cucumbers, here is an inspiration recipe. Grain Salad with Fresh Lemon and Herbs.

This recipe would make a great pot luck option, main course, or a perfect healthy meal-prep option to pack as a lunch. So many variations are possible depending on what vegetables happen to be in abundance. I love base recipes that can be modified depending on what produce is available to you. A fruit option with strawberries and feta would be delicious as well!
