From the Test Kitchen

In Naples, locals celebrate the bounty of summer with a rustic stew of vibrant, seasonal produce. We’re drawing inspiration from this custom with our own delectable medley of zucchini, sweet pepper and summer beans. (Since both purple and green beans are at their peak this time of year, you may receive a combination of the two.) We’re serving the vegetables over a bed of pleasantly chewy farro tossed with fresh mozzarella, sautéed kale and plump cherry tomatoes. Gremolata, a classic parsley and lemon condimentfinishes it all off with a touch of herbal brightness.

Halve the zucchini lengthwise; cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Using a peeler, remove the lemon rind, avoiding the pith; mince to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems and finely chop the leaves. Small dice the cheese.
