One of my favorite parts of summer is the abundance of fresh fruits, veggies and herbs. For the past two years I have grown basil, cilantro and mint on my porch. It’s so fun to just walk out there and pick off what I need. If I had room for an entire garden I would grow more but, tis’ the life of a city girl.So instead, I go to the farmers market every Thursday at the Daley Plaza and load up on tomatoes, asparagus, fingerling potatoes, and more. This is easily the easiest recipe I have put on here, but that is kind of the beauty behind it. Nothing fancy, normal ingredients, and it can be ready in minutes.
Tomato, avocado and basil salad (serves 2 people)
- 1 ripe tomato (can use different kinds/colors)
- 1 avocado
- 6 basil leaves
- Optional: olive oil, balsamic vinegar
1. Wash tomato and basil leaves. Slice tomato in rounds, cut avocado and place on a plate with basil leaves. Sprinkle salt and/or optional additions and serve! Easy as pie!
I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting more regularly. We just found out we are moving in two weeks so we have been showing the apartment (meaning no cooking, keeping everything super clean, and eating out for every meal) but I plan on being a cooking machine this weekend and hope to have some new recipes to post soon! I have also been working on my other blog Little Miss 312 a lot. I think I under estimated how much work two blogs was going to be, but I promise to do my best
