When you’re tired of corn on the cob, try Char’s favourite summer salad.

This is a summertime favourite of our grocery manager Natascha and is the perfect side dish for any meal. Make lots, as it’s great cold the next day for lunches and snacking.

If you have a cherished family recipe, than you’ll identify with the family discussion around Oma’s potato salad.

Produce Manager Brent shared his family’s favourite recipe when the call went out for a non-mayo potato salad. Calling it a French Potato Salad just seems to elevate this tasty side to oh-la-la new heights!

One of my favourite side dishes at Earl’s Restaurant is a delicious warm potato salad. You really can’t go wrong with potatoes, bacon and corn in a creamy dressing!

Rarely do I not tweak or adapt a recipe, but this Smitten Kitchen recipe is perfection, and I haven’t changed a thing.

Everyone loves Mexican Street Corn with its smoky, limey goodness, so why not turn those delicious flavours into a winner pasta salad.

This nutty mix would be delicious served over any grilled or roasted veggies, but the flavours shine when spooned over Lepp’s farm-fresh green beans.

This recipe is a simple mix of a few Asian pantry staples and has become one of our family’s favourite ways to dress our farm-fresh summer green beans.

This recipe is easily adaptable to however many green beans you have on hand or the number of guests joining you for dinner.


This salad hits all the senses with sweet summer peaches, creamy burrata and salty prosciutto. Peppery arugula is perfect for this salad but feel free to substitute baby spinach or mixed greens.

One of our most asked about recipes is our coveted spinach salad. With strawberries in season we thought this was the perfect time to let you in on the secrets behind our favourite salad.


This salad features our beloved Osoyoos peaches and Lepp Farms corn, and you’ll be thrilled with how fresh and summery it tastes.

Jewel colored peppers, summer ripened tomatoes and emerald green pesto make this dish a feast for the eyes. But it’s also easy and delicious, making it a winner as an easy summer side dish.
