market haul

Today’s market haul includes sweet-as-candy Sungold tomatoes, beautiful Nicola potatoes, Swiss chard, and green peppers, that scourge of CSA boxes everywhere. (Beg to differ? Tell us why. Michael Ruhlman is with me on this one.)

The Haul: Nicola potatoes, Sungold cherry tomatoes, long green peppers, green bell peppers, Swiss chard, parsley, Asian eggplant, lettuce, nectarines, yellow peaches, donut peaches, and white peaches

The Menu Ideas:
Babbo’s Pasta with Sungold Tomatoes [NYM]
A summertime staple in our house, this oh-so-simple pasta is even more delicious with cubes of fresh mozzarella thrown in.

Hot Smoked Salmon on a Warm Bean, Potato, and Olive Salad [JBF]
Petite, waxy Nicola potatoes are delicious boiled and sliced in a simple salad such as this one. The salmon can be grilled if you don’t have a hot smoker.

Italian Sausage Heroes with Peppers and Onions [F&W]
Perhaps this sausage sandwich is the answer to the question posed by a crisper drawer full of green peppers?

Summer Green Bean Salad [101 Cookbooks]
Roasted hazelnuts and a creamy, shallot-studded dressing take this simple salad into dinner-party territory.

Trucchia (Swiss Chard Omelet) [JBF]
A thin, flat omelet from the south of France. Blanch the chard ahead of time for a post-work dinner that comes together in seconds.

Deep-Fried Peaches and Nectarines [Food 52]
Fried peaches—what’s not to love?  

What would you make with this haul?
