Redlands Farmer's Market... yesterday.
Yesterday at the Redlands Farmer's Market, I picked up several delicious treats to use for a client dinner in Riverside. At the farmer's market, I was so excited to re-connect with Jane and Mindy from Sunnyside Local! Mindy and Jane are new on the scene at Redlands Farmer's Market. Yesterday, Jane and Mindy were sampling delicious pesto with a perfect flavor balance and tangy finish. Yummy! For Saturday night's dinner, I picked up Japanese Eggplant, heirloom tomatoes and beautiful figs from Sunnyside Local. I grilled the Japanese Eggplant with balsamic vinegar sea salt and olive oil. We used the heirloom tomatoes to make a lovely caprese salad, The figs were used for an appetizer: figs, goat cheese and farmer's market honey from Soffel's Farm in Redlands- on a toasted crostini. The figs were a huge hit and everyone loved all of the wonderful food from Sunnyside Local. Thank you, Jane and Mindy !!!
