I fully understand that most of you are just going to eat your first tomatoes, corn and green beans in a simple manner to enjoy them. But for those who feel like trying something new, I am sending this recipe.
Finely slice onion to make 1/2 C. Marinate in a bowl with the juice of 1 lime.
Quarter 2 Tomatoes. Roughly puree in a food processor with the onions and lime juice plus 2 minced cloves of garlic, 2 T. minced fresh ginger, 1 t. ground cumin, and your favorite hot pepper to taste (fresh or dried). Season with salt and pepper.
Trim 1/2 lb. of green beans. Husk 2 ears of corn. Cook the beans in the salted water until just tender, then remove with a slotted spoon and rinse to cool.
Bring the same water to a boil again, then add the corn. When the water returns to a boil, the corn is done.
Cut the kernels off the cob.
Grate 2 summer squash.
Toss the vegetables with the tomato chutney.
Serve over lettuce leaves.
