I’ve been taking a bit of an unplanned break from this space and it has been simply lovely. As I mature in my creative self, I realize how valuable time away is because it allows space for new ideas to take root and flourish. Most of this time away has been spent in my typical daily routine of work and home life, but last week I enjoyed a glorious vacation in South Carolina. Over the course of the week, I found myself with renewed inspiration on many fronts, one being plenty of new things I want to cook and bake.
The idea for this dish came to me while I was basking in the sun (okay, the shade near the sun) poolside, watching my kids play in the pool. Now having made it, the final result seems to perfectly match the circumstances of its creation. This dish is simple, light, fresh, and colorful. It is equally delicious served warm or cold, and would be a perfect option to bring to a potluck. My only recommendation is to at least double it for a crowd since a single batch was just enough to serve four of us, with none left over!
