For me, all of my food and drink indulgences vary with the seasons, as my body craves produce items that naturally ripen at different times. I’m a server at True Food Kitchen (truefoodkitchen.com) which has just released an amazing watermelon salad. It’s ripe with summer flavors, including mint, basil, feta cheese, and a colorful array of heirloom tomatoes. The salad pairs perfectly with any light summer dinner dish and a glass of dry California Sauvignon Blanc. brittarael.com

My favorite summertime indulgence is the fresh, seasonal, organic produce that is available wherever I happen to be.  We travel a lot so I enjoy mangoes in Hawaii and all manner of stonefruit (peaches, plums, apricots) in California.  I also enjoy the occasional glass of organic wine- my favorite vintner is Casa Barranca (casabarranca.com) in Ojai Valley, the place we currently call home. divineharmony.org

I’m currently obsessed with Fishing With Dynamite in Manhattan Beach (eatfwd.com). My perfect Sunday afternoon is sharing a dozen oysters and sipping an “Innocents Abroad,” an effervescent cocktail made with sparkling wine, passion fruit, lavender, and Thai basil. The flip flop beach town has this amazing community feel that simultaneously makes you feel like you’re eternally on vacation. quickiechick.com

I’ve frequented Santa Monica’s one-of-a-kind Bay Cities Italian Deli (baycitiesitaliandeli.com) since I was a small child. This is by far a top favorite, and perfect for summer days at the beach. Their sandwiches are seriously unreal (get one with “the works”), along with all the goodies stacking their aisles. Grab a buddy, the most delicious sandwich you’ll ever eat, and stroll to the beautiful ocean water only blocks away. isabellacassini.com
