5 Apps That Scream Summer

When I think of summer, a brilliant palette of fruits immediately comes to mind---especially melons, stone fruits and tomatoes.  Summer’s temperatures make for lighter eating, so my summertime appetizers are not only visually stunning but are healthy fare.   (Note:  while there is cheese or meat in a few, their amounts are minuscule.)

Watermelon, arugula & goat cheese
Cut watermelon in circles.   Top with arugula, goat cheese and browned pinenuts.  Drizzle with balsamic and top with fleur de sel.

Nectarine, prosciutto & arugula
I use white nectarines in this simple stunner.  Cut fruit in wedges and wrap with prosciutto and arugula.   Sprinkle with drops of a good olive oil.

Olives & cantaloupe
Cut the cantaloupe into small pieces (I use a melon baller).   Serve with a back olive on a toothpick.

Peaches, tomatoes, mozzarella & mint
Slice baguette and toast.  Add mozzarella, tomato & a peach wedge.  Top with a good salt and piece of mint.

Yellow gazpacho shooters:
If I had to pick one favorite summer recipe this one would be it.  It’s from the magnificent Sunday Dinners at Luques cookbook.
