Summer on a Plate

It would appear I am obsessed with plates as of late.  I like them when they're empty, but I love them when they're full!  During the summer months, I love to eat fruit for dinner.  The more colorful the contents on your plate, the better.

The greens on this plate are topped with pecans, sweet onions, feta cheese, grilled peaches wrapped in prosciutto, topped with a cherry balsamic vinaigrette.   A hunk of watermelon and a couple of strawberries round out the fruit selection.  Fresh pesto (basil from our garden) over thin linguine fills out the other side of the plate.

This all looks great on a white bone china plate -- but tastes even better traveling down the gullet!

  1. I've been eating nuts in more dishes ( not cashews) but on leafy green salads I eat pecans or almonds and chopped almonds and put some in my tuna for extra protein and good fats! Surprisingly, they help to keep my blood glucose in check!
    I eat a handful with an apple and an ounce or two of cheddar after I get out of school!
    Your dish sounds healthy and tasty!
