We know the amazing variety of local produce here in California makes you all green with envy. But that won’t stop us from giving a shout-out to our favorite produce du jour: the shishito pepper. Chef Ted Hopson slices them thin with Fresno chiles and bell peppers, then adds raw beef and ssamjang sauce for a beef tartare lettuce wrap he’s got on the menu at The Bellwether. Find the recipe on the Good Food blog and head to the farmers’ market now with your reusable public radio tote bag to load up on peppers!
