Summers Fresh Produce with Wine

Summer is great time of year for enjoying the fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season with your favorite wines. It is also a time of year that many people like to eat light. The hot weather sometimes suppresses our appetite as well as the fact that we want to look good in our swimsuits, can also help to curb what we eat. Either way, it is a great time to indulge in the local fresh vegetation available. How about slicing up a nice ripe tomato, layer it with fresh mozzarella cheese, sprinkle with salt, pepper, some fresh basil and drizzled with your favorite dressing or even balsamic vinegar? Makes a nice refreshing snack you can pair with your choice of wine. Another easy vegetable snack would be steaming asparagus until just tender, but still a bit crunchy. Serve along with your favorite ranch dressing for dipping. My personal favorite, are the fruits. A fresh juicy crisp apple goes great with a glass of wine and a few slices of cheese. A platter of fresh grapes to compliment the grapes in your glass goes a long way too. The possibilities are as endless as the variety of vegetables and fruit available in summer.
