Last week, Melissa’s Produce sent me a delightful box of summertime goodies. I unfortunately was not able to get a picture but the box, but it included a whole baby coconut, nectarines, rhubarb, peach bites, fava beans and a tiny melon. We were asked to create a recipe using at least 3 of the ingredients in the box, a sort of chopped challenge.
Melissa’s Produce is always perfectly ripe and fresh. They have a wide variety of fruits and vegetables from around the world. Make sure to check out their Facebook page for fun facts and in season produce.
These bars are wonderful with any fruit combination. I made these a couple of years ago with blueberries and raspberries and they were so delicious, people are always requesting them. If you are pinched for time, substitute a yellow boxed cake mix for the dry ingredients in the crust (instructions below).
