Dressing Up Fruits and Vegetables with Fustini’s Oils & Vinegars

It’s peak growing season in West Michigan. With so many vegetables and fruits currently available in this region, which is deprived of fresh produce much of the year, you can’t have too many ideas for how to prepare them.

Today Lane Milligan, of Fustini’s Oils and Vinegars, showed a crowd at the Holland Farmers Market Chef Series some interesting ways to bring out the best in fresh produce from the farmers’ market.

She prepared two recipes: Peach and Garlic Blueberry Salad, and Green Room Cabbage Salad. Both recipes incorporated Fustini’s special fusions of oils and vinegars, which you can learn more about on their website. Or, if you live in Michigan, stop in for a taste at one of their four stores located in Traverse City, Petoskey, Ann Arbor, or Holland.

After preparing these delicious salads, Lane showed us how to reduce balsamic vinegar for a sweet sauce that you can add to fruit.

Isn’t that a mouth-watering plate of fresh fruit? What a great idea for a simple dessert. Thanks, Lane, for some new ideas for dressing up fruits and vegetables!
