Summer is here and we love all of the produce that this season brings us. You have recently seen the market full of berries, melons, corn, and so much more. Perhaps you have also been trying to come up with a fresh new summer recipe! This recipe is the perfect side dish, or even a light lunch. It takes only a few minutes to throw together and there are only a handful of ingredients, most of which you can purchase at Western Wake Farmers Market. The recipe below is a version from Lil’ Luna. I hope you like it!
