Best of Blogs: Grilled Tomato Salsa, Soba Noodles, and Summer Cherries


I think this must have been dairy week.  As I navigated through many of my favorite foodie blogs, it seemed as though all those not specifically targeted at dairy-free, vegan, or food allergies, had dairy loaded recipes.  Beyond my personal diet, milk and cream just doesn’t say “lite and refreshing summer fare.”  But hey, who am I to judge.  Luckily, I did find a few great posts that seemed a bit more summer-relevant, and I uncovered a few blogs that I will have to add to my personal blogroll:

Once again on my Asian food kick, these Cold Soba Noodles with dipping sauce from Just Hungry seem like a perfect summertime dish…

A good story and a recipe ‘how to’ accompanies this Grilled Tomato Salsa (yes I said grilled, vegetables should have a place on every barbecue) from Orangette

Finally, Gluten-Free Girl posted ‘Summer Beckons.”  It is her simple story about summer and cherries that reads almost like a short poem, and made me want to run to the store for some cherries!
