There are so many delicious fruits in season this month so I would like to share some recipes that will take advantage of the produce available this summer. This first recipe is a sweet and savory grilled cheese. Ripe figs are very sweet – pick out the soft deep purple ones that hold their shape when shopping. Goat cheese always pairs well with figs, but for a little twist try adding Thai basil and tamarind glaze!

Cut your bread into thin slices. On one side of the bread drizzle some of the glaze and on the other spread a layer of goat cheese. Add a thin layer of fresh sliced figs and picked Thai basil.Press both sides together and prepare to grill. Melt some butter in a frying pan until evenly coated. Heat both sides of the sandwich until golden brown and cheese is melted. Enjoy!
