One of the great things about Summer is the incredible bounty of veggies that appear in our gardens or at farmers markets. But sometimes that bounty can get overwhelming! There’s only so many tomato sandwiches or zoodles you can eat. Am I right? 🤣 That’s why it’s always good to have some fresh ideas to put all those amazing veggies to good use. This little Summer Veggie Recipe Roundup shares 4 of our favorite summer recipes. All these dishes are easy, healthy and perfect for sharing with friends.

Summer Veggie Recipe Roundup
Greek Salad Hummus
Greek Salad Hummus is the perfect mash up of creamy, garlicky hummus and a Greek salad chock full of peppers, tomatoes, olives, feta and herbs. This makes an impressive appetizer, or do like we do: grab a bottle of wine, a stack of pitas and have this for dinner on the back deck.
Fresh tomatoes from the garden or the farmstand are a true summer treat. This simple Tomato Tart marries a buttery pie crust, some parm, herbs and a slew of those tomatoes into a simple entree or first course. Bonus – this dish can be served either warm or at room temp, so you can make it in the cool of the morning for a light supper later in the day.
Greek Quinoa Salad
Greek Quinoa Salad is great to take to summer potlucks and picnics. Whenever I bring it somewhere, I come home with an empty bowl. And if you’re just eating light at home, it’s a complete meal in itself! Quinoa not your thing? Sub in orzo pasta for an equally delicious salad.
