Watermelon Gazpacho Topped with Crab

This gazpacho is super refreshing because I use watermelon juice along with tomato juice in the base. To that, I dice celery cucumber, green pepper, orange pepper, and tomatoes. Add chopped cilantro, salt and pepper, a few shakes of Worcestershire and a few shakes of hot sauce.

It's great just like that, but even better topped with some freshly picked crab meat right out of my sister's crab pot!

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad

A great salad for a hot, summer day.

Tear spinach, radicchio, and romaine leaves. Add sliced strawberries, pecan pieces, and goat cheese. Top with olive oil and fig balsamic.

I'm a huge proponent of cleaning veggies before serving. This is a great salad spinner and a perfect way to dry your washed greens.

Basic BLT

Nothing says summer to me like a basic BLT sandwich. Wheat toast topped with lettuce, meaty tomatoes, and salty, crisp bacon. Add a little mayo and some salt and pepper for a perfect lunch.
