Vitamix Recipes from the Roadside Stand

It’s hard to pass a roadside stand without stopping to buy some delicious fresh produce. Our advice: first, buy what you like, then buy something that you’ve never eaten before. Now is the time to try something new, just-picked and at its peak flavor.

Bring your produce home and find some tasty Vitamix recipes to show it off and to entice you to add a new fruit or vegetable to your repertoire. A new dressing to glisten on fresh greens, a hummus to dip crisp vegetables, or a soup to freeze and enjoy this winter. When it comes to the roadside stand, your Vitamix blender is your best companion.

Parmesan Balsamic Vinaigrette
Incorporate fresh basil and thyme in this tangy dressing.

Chicken Spread
Creamy with mayonnaise, crunchy with vegetables, and smoky with roasted red pepper.

California Salsa
A beautiful use for a bounty of vine-ripened tomatoes.

Zucchini Soup
This smooth, creamy puree blends the hearty flavors of zucchini, green pepper, and potato to create a satisfying vegetable soup. Substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth for a vegetarian option.

Watermelon Gazpacho
A twist on the classic, Chef Bibby Gignilliat's version uses the sweet, juicy flavors of watermelon for a splash of summer.

Corn Chowder
The smooth base of this chunky corn chowder is made in the Vitamix, followed by stovetop veggies to add a crisp, corn-off-the-cob texture.
