After a morning at the farmer's market, an afternoon of yardwork, and my mother-in-law in town, dinner was a long way off. To bridge the gap between light lunch and big dinner, something delicious, simple, and easy to put together was a must. Combining fresh fruits from the market with items in my pantry, I was able to create a fantastic appetizer that filled us up long enough to get dinner made!
