      Summer is one of my favorite seasons now, and oh yes I have so much to share this Summer 🙂

    This sounds delicious. I recently discovered duck bacon, which is 10x better than turkey bacon in my opinion, so I’ll have to try substituting the bacon for duck bacon. Fun recipe–thanks for sharing!

      Wow! I never heard of duck bacon before, have to search for it and try it. Thanks for stopping by Chava 🙂

  6. This looks amazing, Muna. I love the delicious combo on your plate.
