"Last day of summer" recipes



I'd celebrate the 21st of June even if it wasn't my birthday because the beginning of summer is almost more exciting than getting a year older. So I thought, why not celebrate the last day of it as well? That's why I'm sharing these two recipes I recently tested and absolutely love not on a Sunday as my usual "kitchen heals soul" posts but on this very last day of summer, at least at the northern hemisphere.



Fig salad, recipe adapted by Jamie Oliver

He calls it the sexiest salad in the world and who am I to argue with him? This salad is full of unexpected taste sensations like the hint of lemon zests and fresh peppermint leaves hiding between the rocket. And not to mention the buffalo mozzarella and the honey dressing drizzled over!



Summer peach and balsamic pizza, recipe found on Love and Olive Oil, adapted from Two Peas & Their Pod

Peaches are my favorite summer fruit but I would never have thought to use them on a pizza (or flatbread, whatever you want to call it). But this tangy and sweet fruit goes so well with goat cheese, the result is an absolutely delicious and unusual combination.


Wishing you all a beautiful last day of summer!
