Summer Celebrations

Scott and I walked into Whole Foods on Saturday excited to see and smell the big roaster turning out front, announcing it was that time of year -- the Hatch Green Chili Festival.

As soon as we hit the produce and saw the vibrantly colored pints of tiny red and yellow grape tomatoes just at the height of Summer's sweetness jumped, we knew Supper was in sight!

This is delicious simplicity. A paired-down and dirty version of a panzanella salad (as my sister described it), but with crunch!

Sliced the tomatoes, and drizzled with balsamic vinegar and good olive oil. Made croutons from rustic bread and herbs. Topped tomatoes with the crouton mixture just before serving and garnished with fresh basil. Fabulous.

Of course you can't forget that we also had to celebrate the Hatch Green Chili -- and did so with a Hatch Green Chili Crabcake, topped with a yogurt remoulade. Big smile!!
