What a fabulous 4th of July weekend we had! Couldn’t have asked for better weather… hope you all had a great weekend and I also hope you all ate well!
Since it’s July I’m guessing everyone is taking advantage of the wonderful produce we are starting to get! My gardens are not producing much yet, but they are on their way. The Farmers Markets are open now though…take advantage of them and enjoy local produce!
Here is a favorite recipe utilizing summertime fare!
Red Pepper Gazpacho
Peel, seed and dice 2 cucumbers and 2 red bell peppers. Place in a bowl, and combine with 1 minced garlic clove, 3 scallions, 1 small diced tomato, 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, and 1/2 chopped jalapeno pepper. Add 2 1/2 cups vegetable juice, 4 tsps olive oil, and 1 tbsp cider vinegar; season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Cover and wrap… serve when chilled.
