As we head into June and warmer months in Ontario, locally grown fruits like cherries, strawberries and blueberries will be in season and at their freshest. Asparagus, Beans, Bok Choy, Broccoli, field cucumber, lettuce, mushrooms, spinach and summer squash, to name a few, will be freshly picked and at their peak in flavour and nutrition. To help decide on spring, summer grocery needs, and get inspiration for recipes, I put together a comprehensive list of some of the wonderful vegetables and fruits that will be in season April through to September.

This hit green bean and mango salad is bright, red, gold, and very green! Fixed with a remarkable leguminous vegetable, this is not your typical mango salad.

These s’mores are the perfect chocolatey, gooey, indoor summer treat. Open camp fire not required. Just make sure to keep and eye on the marshmallows while they’re broiling. Serve family-style or scoop out into individual bowls.
