The Great Harvest Dinner

Corn

The air may still be summery (and, in some places, record-breakingly warm), but the bounty of vegetables turning up in farms and gardens can only mean one thing: It’s harvest time. And that is cause for celebration. Ideally, you’d get the whole neighborhood together and do a full-on pig roast, but even for a smaller gathering you can cook up a stellar dinner to showcase the harvest. Craft your own harvest dinner by choosing a dish (or two) from each of these categories:

Meat
Root Vegetables

Tomatoes/Tomatillos/Eggplant/Peppers/Summer Squash

Mustard Greens
