Pick The Perfect Summer Produce - Money-Saving Tips To Maximize The Flavors Of The Season
(NAPSA) - Luscious red watermelon. Juicy green grapes. Crisp corn-on-the-cob. Not only do fresh summer fruits and vegetables add the perfect touch to any picnic or barbecue, they're also picked at the height of freshness-which maximizes their flavor while minimizing their cost.
Ripe summer vegetables include arugula, avocados, green beans, beets, celery, collards, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, garlic, mushrooms, onions, peppers, potatoes, sugar snap peas, Swiss chard, tomatoes and zucchini. Your best summer fruits are apricots, blackberries, cantaloupe, cherries, figs, grapes, guava, honeydew, lychees, mangoes, nectarines, papaya, pears, plums, raspberries, strawberries and watermelon.
Talamini offers the following money-saving strategies:
Combine first 3 ingredients in a small jar and set aside.
Peel and section 2 tangelos; set aside. Squeeze juice from remaining 3 tangelos to measure 1/2 cup juice. Combine juice and honey in a small sauce pan, stirring well. Bring juice mixture to a boil; cook, uncovered, until reduced to 1/3 cup, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool completely. Add juice mixture to mustard mixture in jar; cover tightly and shake vigorously.
Combine watercress, arugula and endive in a bowl; add mustard mixture and toss gently. Place watercress mixture evenly on individual salad plates; top with tangelo sections and strawberry slices.
