We’ve been enjoying several salads this summer. Here’s another one, inspired by Lynn Rossetto Kasper of The Splendid Table (a great NPR podcast). The combination of nectarines, red onions and goat cheese was delicious, and the fresh basil added just the right touch.

We’re so excited to be growing our own basil that we can’t stop thinking of ways to use it!
