Summer Fruits and Vegetables

Here's our guide, from FoodFit founder and CEO Ellen Haas' book, Great Adventures in Food, to summer's bounty. Find out about the vegetables that are in season now — from arugula to zucchini. We'll tell you what to look for at the market, how to store the vegetables at home and how to cook them, plus great recipes. Remember, summer begins in mid-June and runs until late September so if you can't find a fruit or vegetable, ask your grocer when it will be in stock.
