The summer is in full swing!! I love watching all of my vegetable grow. Although my tomatoes aren’t ready yet, I am able to go to our local farmer’s market for them. I am happy to be able to walk out my door and pick my basil as well as other herbs.

With summer comes bbqs with friends. I am always trying to come up with new dishes to share. This one is especially easy as well as refreshing.

It’s a crowd favourite!
