Refreshing, light, and simple. These three words, single handedly, symbolize the food associated with summer. The warm summer air, while beautiful, is sometimes overbearing. When it is hot and humid, you don't crave heavy braised meats, you crave light, crisp, and delicious food. The abundance of fresh, seasonal produce is so stunning that not much is needed to be done to make tasty food. Honestly, what is better than the best watermelon, or perfectly ripe strawberries? To me, nothing. Nature, when let to create, produces flavors that need no altering.
