Fresh vegetables & herbs are perfect for quick and delicious summer meals. I find that the ­farmers’ market is always the best source for mounds of fresh corn, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and herbs, but your local supermarket should offer a nice selection as well. When shopping for fresh corn, avoid any that has been trimmed or shucked, which is a super­market trick for getting rid of lackluster corn. Also, be especially vigilant about finding ripe, fragrant tomatoes—they should feel slightly warm (or room temperature) in the palm of your hand and offer just a slight resistance when squeezed.

For another great Quick & Delicious recipe, check out my recipe for Linguini with Hot Chile, Caramelized Onion & Gremolata.
