Run to the nearest Farmer’s Market and gather up the last of the summer crops! It will all be over soon and before you know it, you will be longing for some fresh tomatoes, corn, okra and white acre peas.
One of the best end of the summer dinners is Corn and Tomato Salad topped with bacon, blue cheese crumbles and grilled shrimp. Serve it with a hunk of sourdough baguette.
