What are your most loved summer fruits and vegetables?

I recently wrote about the benefits of eating with the seasons. Whilst it is convenient to have access to our favourite foods all year round, I do think there is something special about looking forward to the seasons.

So, this summer, think about the following fruit and vegetables

  • Williams pears (I especially love them firm with rocket, parmesan and walnuts)
  • Apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums (ever had a plum daiquiri?)
  • Cherries (as is or poached)
  • Grapes (try freezing them)
  • Berries (eg a summer berry fruit salad or sorbet)
  • Passionfruit (with yoghurt)
  • Bananas (on your muesli)
  • Mangoes (try them in a smoothie)
  • Melons (perfect dessert on a hot day)
  • Figs (on a cheese platter)
  • Avocados (so many options)
  • Cucumber (try them as an appetiser topped with avocado, salmon dip or smoked trout and coriander)
  • Capsicums (perfect with dip)
  • Celery (try it with nut butter)
  • Tomatoes (so versatile)
  • Radishes (pickled or in a salad)
  • Red onions (in a Greek salad)
No doubt you can think of dozens of other ways to have these wonderful fruits and vegetables. Do you have a favourite?
