Tomato, Peach and Basil Salad


Something about adding fruit to this salad brings it to a whole different level. You could easily switch the peaches for nectarines if you wanted.

Tomato, Peach & Basil Salad

Serves 2



2 large handfuls grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise

2 fresh yellow peaches, halved and sliced

1 small bunch basil leaves

3 oz. mozzarella pearls

1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar

2 tsp olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper



Zucchini Chips


Does your zucchini alsways end up in a variation on the same side dish? What if they coud be a snack instead? If you're willing to try something a little different, these might be the thing for you.



Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Chips


3 medium fresh zucchini, sliced into ¼-inch rounds

cooking spray

3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1/8 tsp garlic powder (or more to taste)

freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

pinch of Kosher salt



Roasted Vegetables with Scallion Miso Butter


A tasty recipe with a butter sauce you could put on almost anything. If you have a grill or grill pan, you could grill the veggies instead. If you have that option, some larger pieces of grilled scallions (three-inch pieces) would be a great addition to this dish.



for the miso butter:

3 tablespoons of butter, softened

3 teaspoons of sweet white miso

2 scallions, thinly sliced

black pepper


for the vegetables:

a quart of cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half
