Summer Simplicity

Summer is my favorite season in the Northeast because produce is 🔥 and it makes meal prep a hundred times easier! 

One of my personal faves is homemade bruschetta. I think it remains a favorite because you can change it up a million different ways and you're still able to enjoy fresh produce and even meats and other protiens in a fast, throw-it-together dish that can also be saved AND is yummier after a day of being stored! 

I am the girl with the basil plant in my city-window that at times looks like it's en queue to take over my whole house with it's next quick growth spurt. I can't live without fresh basil 🌿 and I honestly don't ever want to.

the combos are endless! You can create something that is more traditional like above, or you can create your own savory palette pleaser. One of my favorite unique bruschettas is grilled steak, gorgonzola, tomatoes + EVOO.  

Just dice up your ingredients, toss + enjoy right away or chill it in the fridge for a few hours. You can serve with crostini slices in the name of tradition, or you can toss it with some local greens to make my favorite bruschetta salad!
