Eat Your Local Veggies!
Posted 8/22/2011 12:00:00 AM

This is the time of year when fresh, locally grown produce is in abundance. You've got corn, eggplant, summer and zucchini squashes, and my favorite, red, ripe tomatoes! There is nothing like a tomato straight from the garden or the farm. And the best part is, you don't have to do a lot to dress them up at the dinner table.

 

 

Here's one of my favorite ways to serve tomatoes in the summer. Just slice them and place them on a platter. Layer them with sliced mozzarella. Add some fresh basil leaves on top and them drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. You can sprinkle a tad of red wine vinegar if you want, and add salt and pepper to taste, but I find that the less you do, the better. Tomatoes this time of year hold their own!

 

 

So take advantage of the wonderful vegetables that are available now at your local farm stand or produce section of the supermarket. Not only are they delicious, but they're so good for you too!
