This Weeks Recipe

Grilled Garlic Scape Summer Salad

by MyRecipes


Our vendors are preparing for our annual Garlic Festival taking place August 10th& 11th, which means that garlic scapes are now popping up at Market. Scapes are a part of the garlic that if left on blooms into a flower. If they’re not cut they take away from the growth of the garlic bulb. This recipe uses those garlic scapes in a fresh and crisp summer salad that would pair great with some grilled chicken.
