Organic and Herbal ~Yummy .
Summer has arrived and with the sun, changing of activities, and schedule's many of us find cooking and serving nutritious meals to be less than easy or exciting.
In the months to come I will be offering many great tasting, packed with nutrition, and visually enticing recipes for any and all meals of the day.
Brunch is a big event at Sage Hill Farms during the summer when heavy foods and stricter schedules are put aside.
We can be more energetic by eating less if we are opting for the right combination.
This is the brunch I had just for myself today.
You can easily adjust the amounts depending on the number of servings needed.
MELON AND CUCUMBER SALAD~
1 cup of cubed or balled melon-( I use cantaloupe )
1 cup sliced cucumber ( I like the baby ones )
1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion
1/4 cup purple onion
1/2 cup sliced cold chicken ( optional ) Omit if serving as a side salad
Sprinkle with a blend of sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and dried thyme.
Toss to allow the flavor's to mingle.
Serve with your favorite beverage ( I like a Beringer White California Zinfandel)
Set a pretty place to enjoy.
Do let me know if you would like recipes planned around a special food.
Happy Summer~Healthy Summer~
