It happens every summer. I walk through the markets and I’m overwhelmed with all the produce. It ends with me standing in the middle of the fresh cherries, berries, heirloom tomatoes, and stone fruit trying to figure out what to get. I want to buy them all and stuff my refrigerator full of all the tasty goodness that summer has to offer, but I know I shouldn’t. I won’t be able to enjoy them all.
I’ve been enjoying stone fruits and berries since May. Now I’ve moved on to cherries and fresh figs (a little late this year in California). Oh! and grapes! Help me. I think I might have a problem. Anyway, here are 19 (yes, more than one to make per day this month) summer produce recipes so that we can all enjoy the produce as much as possible.

I love them all (truthfully), but the salted fig + honey crackers are a dream; this nectarine galette it so simple and nothing short of divine with homemade whipped cream; and that pico de gallo recipe (going viral on Pinterest right now) is easy, delicious, and (jokingly) making my husband’s thumb very famous!
Oh. And that berry + burrata breakfast salad needs to happen immediately if you haven’t tried it yet! Ok. I’m done. I hope. If you need me, you can find me talking to myself in the middle of Trader Joe’s produce section.
