There's not much that I love more than some good ole' fresh veggies in the summertime. And boy, have we been eating our fair share. With an abundance coming from my parents and bosses gardens and a farmer's market less than a half of a mile from our house, we are always looking for new ways to cook things. Thankfully Pinterest is almost always spot on with it's recipes of goodness. Here are the two new recipes I found this past week, that made the perfect healthy + fresh sides.
