Summer days

Temperature becomes warmer, summer fruits come into season, and the meals can lighten up as much as the days do.

 

I never really thought of putting two things I love together. Salmon (Wild from Maine – NOT farmed). Cheddar Cheese (Organic mild). What?

 

I thought it was weird. I thought it might taste kinda funky. I thought wrong.

Smoked wild Salmon – look at that beautiful color.

ImageMom wrapped the cheese in strips of salmon and gorged on these and a delicious salad I made. It went nicely with the cheese and salmon.

Lettuce, carrots and blueberries – oh my.

If you’re planning a picnic, or thinking of serving appetizers for your guests, these two are ideal as they are incredibly simple to set up yet are quite flavorful; and healthy!
