Fresh asparagus is one of the best foods of summer, along with homemade popsicles
and grilled corn on the cob, of course. There's a reason that most asparagus recipes call for little more than salt and pepper when it comes to seasoning - fresh seasonal asparagus, like grilled corn on the cob, is just so delicious all on it's own! If you're grilling outdoors, try this basic grilled asparagus recipe
dressed in a mustard vinaigrette (pictured). Or, for a light lunch, try this easy asparagus soup
made from asparagus and just 4 more ingredients, or a summery asparagus pasta salad
Zucchini: Expecting a huge crop of zucchini or just can't resist all those sunny summer squashes calling your name at the local farmer's market? Zucchini is one vegetable that most kids will approve of, whether it's in a fun finger food like these vegetable tacos with zucchini, or just simply heated on it's own with a bit of seasoning, as in this simple zucchini side dish. Breaded and baked zucchini is always a hit.
