Tasty Tuesday ~ Good Bye Summer with Quinoa Caprese Salad
Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays everyone! I'm Laura from Food Snob St. Louis with an end-of-summer salad recipe for you. Although I am very ready for fall, I love summer. The reasons I love summer, are the very reasons I miss it so much once it's gone:
1. Losing track of time at the pool and staying all day long.
3. Finding refuge in the air conditioning at the library and picking out books to read on a trip (or books I intend to read).
4. Sunsets at 8 p.m.
5. Babies living in onesies.
6. Fresh produce everywhere.
Really, my list could be tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes. It's a simple pleasure of life to be able to slice a fresh, homegrown tomato, sprinkle it with a little salt and just enjoy in its perfect, sweet, juicy state. Even though I enjoyed sipping coffee in my sweats (hello 50 degrees in the a.m.), I mourned the passing of summer a little bit this week. I comforted myself a little bit with my twist on a traditional caprese salad with the last of the seasons fresh tomatoes.
I'm slowly working my way through our 5 pound bag of quinoa, so naturally it was a needed ingredient!
