How To

Fresh Tomato Dipping Sauce
  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add onion and garlic, then sauté for 5 minutes until onions are translucent.
  2. Add brown sugar and cook for 2-3 minutes more. The brown sugar helps caramelize the onions faster.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, add remaining ingredients, stir and simmer uncovered or 20 minutes until tomatoes have broken down and sauce thickens.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
Summer Squash Grilled Cheese Toasties
  1. Use a pastry brush to spread melted butter on each slice of sourdough bread. Place 4 slices, buttered side down, on a clean work surface or directly onto a grill basket.
  2. Top with a layer of sliced squash and zucchini, then season with smoked sea salt and pepper.
  3. Add one slice of cheddar, followed by another layer of squash and zucchini, and the final slice of cheddar.
  4. Layer with fresh basil leaves if desired. Place remaining bread slices on top, butter side up.
  5. Grill for 1-2 minutes per side over a medium heat source until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.
  6. Remove from grill and serve with warm dipping sauce. You could serve a whole sandwich as a meal or 1/2 sandwich to each person as a side with your grilled feast.
