Ah, Summer Vegetables at their Best!

Summer dining at Springmoor offers a place for friends to gather and enjoy the season’s best local produce.
Springmoor Dining ReubenThe menu at Springmoor always offers a variety of outstanding options. Dining in North Village or South Village means there is waited service overlooking our exquisite campus. Large picture windows, white table linens and a friendly staff make mealtime even better than your favorite restaurant. Meeting for a lighter fare in our casual Village Bistro is another great option at Springmoor. The Grilled Reuben on rye with seasoned Chippers is a popular choice everyone raves about! The Garden Café in North Village is a wonderful place to read the newspaper and enjoy a cup of coffee each morning, or a hot spot in the afternoons to enjoy a root beer float made with classic vanilla ice cream.
This week our chef shares the resident’s favorite summer veggie options. These three great recipes ideas will surely be a hit at your next gathering. Blueberry Relish (served over roasted turkey), Gazpacho and our favorite House Vinaigrette Dressing are all made with the freshest ingredients for residents’ daily dining, family events, private dining and special occasions.
