Go ahead. Indulge yourself with one of these quick, healthy, and satisfying summertime snacks. I love how cooling they feel on the way down — perfect for these sweltering days of 90-something degree heat.
Option A: Whip out a ripe, juicy tomato from your farmers’ market, slice it thickly, and gently kiss it with a dollop of soft goat cheese from your favorite goat farm. I’m a big fan of Anala Goat Company‘s garlic and parsley chevre. Sprinkle with your neighbors’ chives (thanks, K!) and arrange on a plate. Savour slowly, with extra sliced tomatoes on the side.
Option B: Thickly slice a sweet, local cucumber and dab some chunky guacamole on top. Garnish with extra cilantro if you’re feeling festive. Don’t forget additional cucumber slices on the side.
I may not love summer heat, but I do love summer produce!
