Summertime is when many people enjoy the freshest vegetables available all year long. Whether you’re a health nut, or just enjoy fresh vegetables when they’re “in season,” you’ll love the menu at Flancer’s right now! We’re proud to offer seasonal organic vegetables straight from Desert Root Farm, our neighbor right here in Queen Creek.
Come taste the difference! While many supermarkets advertise fresh vegetables during summer months, there is nothing like organic seasonal vegetables to excite your taste buds and bring a flavor you just don’t find with store-bought vegetables at your table. If you’re a mom or dad who has shopped for tomatoes, squash, and other vegetables during spring and summer months in Arizona, you know that many of the store-bought varieties just don’t have much of a taste, if any at all. At Flancer’s, we’re all about fresh and flavorful! Zucchini, sweet onion, baby carrots, and summer squash will melt in your mouth.
What’s the difference between organic and non-organic veggies? Basically, there are no fertilizers, weed killers, pesticides, or other chemicals that are harmful for the environment used in growing organic vegetables. Any products used by the farmers who grow organic vegetables to control weeds or eliminate bugs/pests are all natural.
Here’s a quick recipe for a fresh, crisp summer salad you will enjoy on hot summer days:
1 cup baby carrots
1 diced zucchini
1 diced yellow bell pepper
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup sliced green olives
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 pkg. Simply Organic mushroom sauce mix
Whisk together balsamic vinegar, sauce mix, and water in a bowl. Heat for 30 seconds in microwave. Toss diced vegetables in sauce, adding cheese. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. Want to make a meal out of it? Just add some cubed cooked chicken!
