{ Grilled Zucchini Salad }

Nothing says summer like the grill and a fresh garden salad– and this recipe involves both! A delicious side, this plate of goodness stars three of those ever-loving items coming fresh from our farm to your table: tender zucchini, sweet corn, and fragrant basil. Yes please!

Topped with a sprinkle of salt, pine nuts and parmesan, you never realize until you take a mouthful just how good a season can taste! This is when eating local really ups the game and you feel glad you invested in fresh this summer.

A big thank you to Edmonton food blogger, Erin Walker of A Little Salt blog, for creating this recipe as well as the beautiful images for us. (See her page for even more tasty recipes!) And I don’t know about you guys, but this one is going to be a regular on our seasonal menu!
