Summer in a bowl! Can you tell I am excited? This is seriously delicious.

Welcome to part three of the picnic extravaganza! Check out the basil hummus and summer corn quinoa salad if you missed those earlier this week! 

There are few things I enjoy more than stone fruit ... but cheese might be one of them. Then add tomatoes and basil and a bit of lemon and olive oil? Plus salt and pepper!? This actually can’t be beat. So. Dang. Delicious.
