I hope you all had a nice Memorial day weekend. Like many of you, I was spending a lot of time this holiday weekend with family and friends. My hopes are that you had long weekend filled with a bit of relaxation, some time to run around and get fresh air, and amazing food, wherever your weekend adventures may have taken you.
It's easy to eat your vegetables when the farmers markets are in full swing, or your garden is flowing with delicious fresh vegetables. All you really need is a bit of salt, pepper and olive oil to turn whatever sun ripened, just picked produce you may have, into a tasty dish. As simple as that is, I more often than not, like to make a vegetable dish that tastes more complex. Looking at different ingredients that will complement the flavors of Summer produce.
This Zucchini tart is complemented by the salty goat cheese and subtle addition of lemon zest and thyme. It is beautiful and yummy! I made this for two different dinner parties, at our home, over the holiday weekend, and it was enormous hit!
