FBLA July Meeting 1

California is one of the fruit capitals of the world, and who better to celebrate its bounty than our Los Angeles Food Bloggers. Whether coming from a local farmers market or from their backyard, our group brought fabulous summer fruit dishes to our July meeting. Salads, chicken, quesadillas, appetizers, sangria and desserts, all with the fruits of the summer season.

Above is a wonderful Nectarine, Hazelnut and Arugula Salad from Adair at Lentil Breakdown. By the way, she just returned from Morocco and has new posts about the markets and food there. Really interesting. Check them out.

Christina from MDR Photography brought a Citrus Sangria that made everyone very happy. *wink*
