Fresh and Easy Salad of Plum and Heirloom Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Banana Pepper, Goat Brie, Fresh Basil and Balsamic Reduction
Hip Hip Hooray! It is FINALLY Friday and Labor Day Weekend is upon us! Whether you have a busy weekend ahead or a more laid back one, it’s nice to have some fresh and easy recipes in mind that taste great but require minimal cooking and preparation. That is where this salad comes in! This recipe combines a lot of bold and unique flavors, which definitely makes it a standout. Taproot Farm has had the BEST organic tomatoes this summer and I have been looking for every way possible to savor them. It’s hard to believe that August is wrapping up and before we know it we will be surrounded by all things Fall! I hope you all enjoy this taste of Summer as much as I have – happy eating and weekending! 🙂
