Hey Marketeers, happy summer! We’ve decided to kick off the summer season with some healthy options because it’s officially time to look good and feel good. With this list of recipes including meals, dips and smoothies, we hope you can find something you like! And guess what? All of the ingredients can be found in the market. With just one quick shopping trip, you’ll be sure to find everything you need!
Fabulous Fish Tacos
We don’t know about you, but when we think summer, we think seafood. Spending time in the heat makes us crave the fresh, light taste of fish! If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal to whip up this summer season, we have the perfect recipe for you! These fish tacos have the perfect combination of white fish, spice and fresh toppings. Stop by the Market to pick up some fresh ingredients and start cooking. You can find what you need at Golden Fish Market, John Yi Fish Market and Wans Seafood. For spices and other ingredients, swing over to Jonathan Best Gourmet Grocer and The Head Nut.
Nothing says party time like a bowl of homemade guacamole. Whether you choose to follow along with this recipe or you decide to twist it in your own way, be sure to stop by the Market for the freshest ingredients. Get your avocados, tomatoes and onions from Iovine Brothers Produce, Kauffman’s Lancaster County Produce, Fair Food Farmstand or OK Produce and tortilla chips from 12th St. Cantina. Pro tip: Fresh lime will absolutely elevate your guac, no matter what recipe you follow!
Fresh Tomato and Mozzarella Salad
OK, this is a classic. In our opinion, this refreshing Caprese salad is perfect for summer. Need some fresh Mozzarella? We’ve got you covered at all of our favorite cheese spots: Fair Food Farmstand, Downtown Cheese, Salumeria, The Riehl Deli and Cheese Shop or Valley Shepherd Creamery (VS makes their own Mozzarella daily). Pick up some tomatoes and basil in our produce stores listed above and voila, you’ve made a delicious summer salad.
