slThe fine folks at Southern Living magazine have put together dozens of recipes designed to help you make the most of what you can pick up at your local farmers’ market. The recipes are designed to help you “take advantage of summer’s vibrant bounty from farmers’ markets, local farm stands, or even your own backyard with these delicious recipes.”

I like the recipe for Farmers’ Market Pasta Salad which offers this tip: “Cook the pasta al dente (1 or 2 minutes shorter than package directions specify) so it holds its shape when tossed with the vegetables and vinaigrette. Ripe for riffs, the salad is also delicious with cheese-filled tortellini.”
