Meg from The Happy Hour seriously has the charmed life. From her beachside abode, to her cleverness in the kitchen, this stylish lady always makes an entertaining read! Her photos are always so warm and make me nostalgic for my So Cal days. But enough about my envy. I'm so delighted to have her here today!

today i'm going to share with you one of my staple/favorite springtime dishes for you to easily whip up in your kitchen and have your tastebuds begging for more than just seconds! i hope you'll try it!
you can spread baguettes with soft goat cheese, salty parmesan, olive oil, garlic & then broil, then pile on the tomato misture ~ experiment with it ;)
1 cup fresh summer tomatoes, minced & drained
2 tablespoons fresh basil, slivered
2 tablespoons green onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
a splash of balsamic vinegar
pinch of red pepper (opt.)
salt & pepper
mix everything together & allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour or more ~ strain juices if you'd like before serving. pile mixture onto crisps, or crusty bread, or even pasta & salads.
i hope you enjoy, & happy spring!
