Summer is coming our way! And with it, its high temperatures. I’ll crave fresh food more than anything else. I’m basically able to live of watermelon during summer. Those fritters are ideal for a summer lunch! I love their minty taste, it’s moist and crunchy, really I love this recipe.
If you like little bite size lunch, I made crab cakes a few weeks ago.
The greek yogurt-green onion sauce really adds to the freshness of the dish. I made mine quite sour because I love lemon but you can add less if you’re not a fan of sourness.
We’re going to Toulon, south of France, at the end of the month and I look forward to it BIG TIME. If you’ve ever been there and have some places I have to see, let me know!
