Lavender Greek Yogurt Parfait

Easy to make, yet complex in flavor, this parfait combines Greek yogurt with honey and lavender; cantaloupe, papaya, and raspberries add sweetness and color.


4 cups Greek yogurt
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbsp. dried lavender (fresh lavender can be substituted if available)
2 cups raspberries
1 cup fresh papaya, sliced
1 cup Ready-Set-Serve Cantaloupe Chunks
4 sprigs Markon First Crop Mint, for garnish


In small mixing bowl, combine yogurt, honey, and lavender; mix well. Spoon yogurt mixture into the bottom of four small glasses. Spoon diced cantaloupe on top of the yogurt, then layer on papaya. Next, spoon raspberries on top; garnish with fresh mint. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
