A very nice recipe using lemon basil (which I am planting tomorrow) : 1 large,fresh from the garden, tomato- diced
10 lemon basil leaves, minced coarsely.
Good olive oil
Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Sea salt, coarse
Fresh black pepper
Crostini, warm from the oven, rubbed with garlic butter
In a small bowl, toss tomatoes with basil, salt and pepper.
Place on a pretty white plate,
Pile high in the middle.
Add parm and sprinkle with olive oil.
Surround this with crostini and open a good merlot!
