Especially the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables from our local farmers markets in Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina. I am also a fan of light summer meals featuring colorful salads. These are easy to prepare and you will notice that fresh summer tomatoes, cucumbers, and watermelon are the star ingredients. Don’t forget the fresh herbs too!</span></span></p>
