It's no secret that I love cooking with color, especially when it means cooking with fresh, colorful ingredients straight from the 'vine'. Be it a sliced, bright red tomato perfectly placed on a pizza topped with fresh basil, a purple cabbage slaw or a vibrant green kale salad, I'm constantly looking for ways to incorporate some of my favorite colors and flavors in the dishes I create at home, particularly for my family.

So, looking for inspiration I dropped by Walmart's Rediscovering America event at the iconic James Beard house last week for a taste of what Walmart is offering in their stores.

Walmart's Rediscovering America program, tasks 9 chefs from around the country, to use Walmart produce for a dish on their menu, for a limited time.

Aside from learning some great tips from the chefs in the program, I got an up close look at how Walmart is making strides by working alongside farmers in the field to ensure the variety you want and the local connections you need without sacrificing fresh, quality ingredients at an affordable price.

Turns out, Walmart is working with thousands of fruit and vegetable farmers in 42 states to grow, harvest and deliver local and organic products to their stores. Through careful planning and coordination, your produce arrives in less time to preserve the "just-picked" fresh flavor we desire. What does locally grown mean? It means, produce that is grown and sold in the same state. We can feel good about buying products that support a better way of growing and sourcing food. It's also not bad to save money on produce by avoiding unnecessary supply chain costs- all the produce is straight from the farm to store.

That said, let's talk about my recipe creation inspired by Walmart's fresh produce offerings. We all know I go big when it comes to breakfast and brunch creations, so I thought a frittata chock-full of my favorite fresh produce ingredients would be the perfect way to go. It's one of those dishes you can add as much or as little as you please. Go ahead add the entire kitchen sink as my grandmother used to do. It's also a great way to

trick those picky eaters into trying new foods with ingredients they supposedly "don't like." (If you have one of those you know exactly what I'm talking about.) The struggle is entirely real but I promise this dish is a sure fire win.

I rounded up some my favorite ingredients straight from the pantry of the James Beard "Rediscovering America" Walmart event and got straight to work on my colorful vegetable frittata.

And pro tip: get your fresh, organic and locally grown produce for this recipe, from Walmart.
