Summer is all about easy and cool. This versatile Summer Avocado Salad is both. Add or drop ingredients to fit your family’s tastes and pantry supplies. We always have CSA veggies to use up and canned beans are a stock item in our kitchen, so we created this meal around those items. Mix, match, eat and have fun.
A trip to the berry patch is one of our family’s sweetest summer traditions. It’s a wonderful activity that appeals to a wide range of ages and can lead to fun memories in the kitchen as you experiment with recipes for your fresh haul. We have your Best Twin Cities Strawberry Patches to Pick Your Own Berries. Plan ahead for berry farms to open for strawberry picking around mid-June; the season is fleeting however, and can fold up as early as the first couple weeks of July. It’s always essential to call the berry farm ahead of time and confirm picking hours and availability to avoid a carload of disappointed would-be berry pickers.
