Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

Summer Salad

tomato bean basil salad

Tomato, Bean, and Fried Basil Salad
11 oz. cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
14 oz. can of mixed beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves
5 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Put the halved tomatoes and rinsed beans in a bowl. Tear the basil leaves and put with the oil in a small pan. Cook gently on medium heat for about a minute, until the basil sizzles and begins to color. Pour the basil and oil over the tomato bean mixture, add salt and pepper, and mix them all together. Cover and leave to marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. You may top with fresh uncooked shredded basil leaves if desired. Serves four to six.
