So something good does come of it! Another sign of summer is the red color palate. After the strawberries, we are now being assaulted with tomatoes in all sizes and shapes. For me this means it is time to make my favorite summer salad Panzanella, Tuscany’s bread salad with ripe red tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and basil sort of a Tuscan Taboulleh! The stale bread is soaked and then the moisture squeezed out to create tiny little crumbs which are then dressed with olive oil, red wine vinegar and salt! Another sign of summer are the festivals with their fabulous flea markets. At the flea market the other day I saw these pots. I really need a larger home so I can buy these! And with nice weather we all look for places to sit and have a nice drink. As I was walking down to the Duomo from the San Lorenzo Market I saw a new wine bar! A new wine bar located right on Borgo San Lorenzo I had a lovely chilled Rose’ and am going back when I am hungry to try the Gorgonzola and pear panino!
