Recipes that make the most of summer’s harvest

With the summer harvest still upon us, I have continued experimenting with more of my favorite fruit and vegetables that are so plentiful this time of year: eggplant, zucchini and nectarines. I enjoy making dishes that enhance the fresh flavors of the fruits and vegetables while they are at their peak. It’s even better when the dishes are easy to create without having to spend excessive time in front of a hot stove or grill. All of these recipes happen to be meatless, but they are certainly hearty enough to be served as a main course. They also make wonderful sides for any Fourth of July cookout or your next potluck party.
