Tastes Like Summer

Don’t have time to make it to the famers market?  A walk through the produce department at FRESH is just as good. With a vast selection of local produce, there are so many choices like East Texas peaches and onions, peas from a local farm and nearby blueberries that you didn’t have to pick!

When I think of summer, I imagine the first bite of a homegrown tomato or sweet and juicy watermelon just picked from the patch. It’s definitely easy to find all of that great summer flavor at FRESH by Brookshire’s. Just look around the store at all the signs pointing out what was grown by Texas farmers or produced by local food artisans.

Homemade salsas are one of my favorite things to make in the summer. Tasting all the ingredients when they are at their peak of flavor is so delicious and healthy, too. They’re also good to put on grilled chicken, fish, tacos or salads. Super easy to make, all you need to do is chop up your favorite ingredients.

This recipe for Melon Salsa is great on its own or with fish or chicken tacos. Each ingredient is so fresh and, besides the lime, grown in Texas. It doesn’t get any fresher than FRESH by Brookshire’s in the summer!
