 I love summer for the bounty of fresh, local produce that I find at Countryside Farmer’s Market at Howe Meadow in Peninsula! There is nothing as tasty – and healthy – as a fresh summer salad. Most meals this Summer have featured fresh produce from the market either incorporated in the main entree or as a side dish. This Sugar Snap Pea & Cucumber Salad recipe is perfect for any summer BBQ, picnic, lunch, or dinner at home. It uses the freshest ingredients of the season – snap peas and cucumbers!

Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook sugar snap peas for 1 minute. Drain and plunge into a bowl of ice water.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, shallot, salt and pepper.
  3. Drain the cooled sugar snap peas, shake off any excess water, and add them with the onion, cucumbers, dill and mint to the dressing in the bowl.  Toss to combine. Add salt, as needed

All of the produce for this recipe was super-fresh from the market!  You can taste the difference between locally grown and harvested at ripeness produce and that of produce shipped across the country! It reminds me of the meals I’d have at my grandma’s growing up – they had a HUGE garden and everything we ate was so fresh and extra good. It’s not just a good memory but true, fresh tastes best.

I’m in love with the onions I get at Countryside, they are huge and I can use both the bulb and the leaves for dishes! You can even find super-sweet candied onions at the market. The sugar snap peas are delicious in their recipe, just balanced and not overcooked. Doens’t that look yummy!?When you shop at Countryside Farmer’s Market, you are providing your family with the freshest and healthiest produce available. You are also supporting local farmers and businesses! Countryside Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday. Pack a cooler to keep meats and produce cool in the car and make it a day in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It’s a great way to explore and have fun in your own ‘backyard’ every Saturday!
