My Last Fling with Summer: A Pebble Salad


September marks the end of summer. It should be a little sad and melancholic but depending how you look at the glass it could be focused on the harvest celebrations and probably the best time to eat seasonally in the UK.

Blackberries and their magnificent colour, best in a sorbet.
Courgettes and their cluck, the choice of recipes is endless however Courgette and Cheese Loaf is a favourite on Pebble.
Artichoke, if anybody has a recipe for Artichoke Mousse, please, push it my way and you could become my best friend ever.

Look in your fridge, in the vegetable basket, out there on the patio or in the garden and you will have the basis for a perfect Pebble dish. Mine was a Pebble Salad with basil, cress and the last of the last of the peppers until next year. What do you do with this:
Peel the peppers which takes a bit of time but it is worth it, tear the basil, toss in the cress in, crumble some goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, olive oil , lots of black pepper and a little salt. Good bye Summer

Here is how to peel peppers
