Summertime Fresh

Picked a couple of the first ripe tomatoes today. With such an early spring, I tried my luck transplanting tomatoes earlier than usual. While I lost some, quite a few plants took off bearing fruit earlier than usual. Perfect timing, too, as today’s hot and muggy weather calls for a light and healthy meal. What better way to celebrate the first tomatoes of the season than a lovely tomato basil mozzarella salad drizzled in olive oil, a splash of balsamic vinegar with shrimp on the side. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and top it off with a nice refreshing madras cocktail to quench the thirst. Definitely screams summertime fresh to me!shrimp and basil tomato
