One of my favorite things about summer is having an abundance of fresh vegetables from my garden. There is just something so rewarding about growing, picking and eating your own vegetables. It’s really quite a lot of fun! We have been so lucky with our harvest this year, and our garden is just bursting with zucchini, summer squash and tomatoes.

I have been trying to come up with new ways to eat all of these wonderful fresh garden vegetables. John bought me a spiralizer for Mother’s Day this year, so we have been having quite a bit of zucchini and summer squash “pasta”. For dinner tonight, though, I wanted to do something a little different. We were having boneless chicken breasts, and I wanted to make a light and refreshing side dish to go with it. I chopped up a small zucchini, small summer squash, 1/2 of an onion, and added some cherry tomatoes. Everything but the onion came from our garden!

I love mixing a bunch of vegetables like this together and cooking them in a foil packet, either in the oven or on the grill. It is really so simple to prepare, and makes clean up super easy. I normally use a little extra virgin olive oil in these veggie foil packets, but I had just received a few bottles of Tessemae’s dressings to try out, and decided to use one of those for an extra burst of flavor. I just knew the lemon garlic would work wonderfully with my garden veggies.

Tessemae’s All Natural is a growing natural food company from Annapolis Maryland. They make clean, fresh dressings, marinades, and condiments with real ingredients and no preservatives. They have a variety of 25 different dressings, marinades, and condiments, and use real, whole sourced food ingredients and are now certified USDA organic.


Unlike most salad dressings on the market, Tessemae’s contain no added sugar, thickeners, or additives, and they are even Whole30 approved! I was really impressed with these dressings and marinades. They are very flavorful, but don’t have that really heavy taste that most other salad dressings have. These are very light and refreshing.


I really enjoyed these lemon garlic garden veggies. It was such a great way to use up a bunch of our garden harvest all at once and it paired very well with our boneless skinless chicken breasts. I also think something like a kielbasa would pair well with these veggies. I love preparing healthy and easy meals like this for my family!
