Here is a slightly different way to make a summer salad that tastes fresh and delicious:
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
basil leaves, preferably sliced into thin ribbons
fresh vinaigrette (grapeseed oil, splash of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper) well shaken
Slice tomatoes. In a salad bowl, toss greens with vinaigrette. Place greens on a serving plate.
Slice the basil into thin strips. Place tomato slices over greens. Salt and pepper tomatoes, then sprinkle the basil over the top. Serve.
Beautiful ripe peaches
These are halved and a blackberry is nestled in the core of each one.
Presentation can add a special touch to the simplest of food.
Take advantage of the fresh bounty of summer!
Eating well does NOT have to be complicated.
