Summer Recipe Roundup

August 27, 2009

Have you noticed that we’ve talked quite a bit about tomatoes lately? To us, great locally-grown tomatoes are a huge part of Summer. And while we’re talking about it, we thought that this would be a perfect time to do a roundup of some of our  ‘previously posted’ Summer recipes. In no particular order, here are some of our favorites!

Insalata ala Caprese

My absolute all-time favorite appetizer to serve with the ‘cream of the crop’ summer tomatoes is Insalata ala Caprese.
