Summer is almost upon us, and there is no better time of year to enjoy all the incredible bounty available to us here in the Comox Valley. Fresh veggies and fruit are mainstays of the season—you can find the best selection at local farm stands, or the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market, which is happening three times a week this summer. This month we have some recipes courtesy of Signature Oil & Vinegar, featuring products from their shop. If you haven’t already discovered all the amazing food items they offer, now is the time to check them out. In the meantime, give these perfect-for-summer recipes a try!
