Tips

Serving Suggestion: Serve with a mixed green salad and your favorite fresh fruit to round out the meal.

Special Extra: Fresh basil is a tasty addition to fresh mixed green salads or even a simple plate of garden-ripened tomatoes in the summer. Layer whole basil leaves between tomato slices or sprinkle tomatoes with chopped basil. Try chopped fresh basil on other garden-fresh vegetables such as steamed green beans or grilled zucchini.
