Arugula and Asparagus Ribbon Salad

During asparagus’s short season, serving it raw is a great way to enjoy it. Shaving the spears into thin ribbons and briefly marinating them in a quick vinaigrette turns the asparagus soft and almost creamy.

Spicy Beet Crostini

Sautéeing beet greens in olive oil turns them meltingly tender, making them a delicious topping for crostini.

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate Milk

Toasting the hazelnuts instead of leaving them raw results in maximum hazelnut flavor, so don't leave this step out! This nut milk is mildly sweet, but you could add a teaspoon or more of your sweetener of choice, if it's not quite sweet enough for you.

Lemon Vinaigrette

This simple vinaigrette is delicious as is, but makes a great base if you'd like to add herbs or garlic.

This palate-cleansing salad balances out rich winter meals. The recipe calls for the vegetables to be thinly sliced, and a mandoline would come in handy here.

Wild Rice Pilaf

Wild rice grows truly wild in Wisconsin, not just cultivated as in other states. Nutty, filling, and flavorful, this pilaf is a wonderful everyday dinner addition, but would also be welcome at the Thanksgiving table.

Sesame Tahini Dressing

This slighty sweet, salty dressing takes a bowl of simple steamed vegetables and warm grains to another level.

Crispy Seed Crackers

Eggplant doesn't need a lot of preparation to taste great. Specialty varieties like Lilac Bride often lack the astringent flavor and big seeds that Italian Globe eggplant sometimes has.

Mushroom and Pepper Goulash

With loads of summer vegetables, hearty mushrooms, and plenty of sweet Hungarian paprika, this vegetarian goulash is full of texture and flavor. Leftovers keep wonderfully for lunch boxes, as well.

Melon with Chile-Lime Syrup

This summer soup is cool and refreshing, lightly sweet with a spicy and smoky punch from the paprika. Try serving in chilled soup bowls.

Fresh Figs with Cashew Cream

This seemingly decadent dessert is something all can enjoy: it's gluten-free, raw, vegan, is only lightly sweetened, and it incredibly delicious! Be sure to start the cashews soaking at least six hours before you'd like to serve it.

Cucumber Salad

Classic, cool, and refreshing cucumber salads are a welcome summer side dish, and a nice counter to grilled meats.

Miso Pasta Salad

Miso dressing is an unexpected but enjoyable choice for pasta salad, giving it a nice umami punch!

Tuscan Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Crookneck Squash

Summer squash soaks up the garlic, herbs, and lemon in this marinade like a sponge, and bursts with flavor after a quick turn on the grill. Use the extra marinade (you'll have some leftover) to drizzle over a grain salad, or to grill more vegetables.

Pickled Ramps

Ramps are also know as wild leeks, and are similar to onion and garlic smashed together. These quick refrigerator pickles intensify their crunch, sharp bite, and pungent flavor.

Black Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Quickly steamed sugar snap peas are tossed in sesame oil and sprinkled with black sesame seeds for a bright and crunchy side dish.

Summer Cucumber Soup

This cool, summer soup was insired by Bulgarian tarator, a soup made with yogurt, cucumbers, dill, garlic, and walnuts. This version skips the yogurt in favor of almond milk for a packed-with-flavor, refreshing dish.
