Did you plant tomatoes for the first time this year? Are you having a good harvest? Maybe too good?

Don’t worry – frost is on the way.

In the meantime, you’ll want to put all the produce overflowing in your yard and at your local Farmer’s Market to good use.

If you’re trying to use up those tomatoes, try the Heirloom Tomato and Chicken Toss. It will keep you out of a hot kitchen and will still be substantial enough for the guys in the family.

You can add to your tapas repertoire with the Summer Melon and Ham Salad with Burrata and Chile.

Are you looking for something special to make your Summer guests? Crab, Corn and Tomato Salad with Lemon Basil Dressing is elegant and comes together in less than 10 minutes. Win, win!

And what if salads bore you to tears? Here’s your rule of thumb – make your plate as bright and colorful as possible. Just remember, personal trainers like to joke, “Great bodies start in the kitchen, not the gym.”
