I’ve been keeping my meals super simple because it’s summertime and the delicious vegetables and pastured meat this time of year are just so good on their own. Last week I wanted to add a little excitement to my usual butter (or ghee) topped meat and veggies by adding some flavoring. I found some sun-dried tomatoes that were just tomatoes and sea salt. Of course, you could make your own but tomato season isn’t here in S.C. yet so that’s on my list to try later in the season. Basil, on the other hand, is in season. It was so fresh and vibrant in my CSA box last week….I just had to add it to my meals. I ended up topping my grilled chicken and zucchini with the Basil and Sun-Dried Tomato Compound Butter. It was such a great flavor combo!
