One of our favorite things about Summer is garden fresh fruits and vegetables. Nothing beats our local Farmer’s Market for flavorful produce! We use tomatoes and watermelon along with hand picked basil right from Karen’s backyard, to create simple and delicious Summertime recipes!
Use Ciabatta, Italian, or a firmer bread of your choice. Brush olive oil on each side and crisp/brown in a skillet on the cooktop or in the oven. To season bread, rub with fresh garlic cloves. In a separate bowl combine diced fresh tomatoes and season with garlic, olive oil, salt, and fresh basil. Toss and top bread with tomato mixture then sprinkle with your favorite Italian cheese. Serve & Enjoy!
Squeeze fresh lime juice of one or two limes over freshly cut watermelon, then toss. Garnish with fresh basil. Easy and delicious!
