Worcestershire Butter Sauce
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1-1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp. salt

Melt the butter in a small saucepan and then add the remaining ingredients. Heat thoroughly and serve over fish or vegetables.

Grilled Stuffed Squash
3-4 small yellow crookneck squash
3/4 cup Farmstand Black Bean and Corn Salsa
6-8 slices of Dietz and Watson Jack Cheese with Cayenne

Cut the squash in half. Scoop out the seeds leaving a cavity. Salt both sides of the squash, this will let it release water and soften. Grill both sides for about 2-3 minutes per side. Spoon in salsa in cavity of squash and cover with a slice of cheese. Grill until melted and heated through.

Grilled Chicken with Peach Salsa
3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or boneless skinless thighs

3 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, peach preserves or jelly, salt, black pepper. Add the sliced nectarines, onion, tomato, jalapeno, and cilantro. Add the juice of one lime and toss to combine. Let marinade refrigerated for an hour to marry the flavors.
