As the heat turns up and the produce confirms summer’s appearance, I remembered two of our favorite meals (among many!) from this time last year. First is Summer Beef Salad a la my dear friend of more than a decade, Donna. Think cold roast beef, avocados, red onions, tomatoes, steamed then chilled potatoes and an easy mustard dressing. You marinate for a few hours and serve, and its simplicity and flavor are really divine.
Second is a recipe for Corn Pesto that I came across in Bon Appetit. Tom and I really loved it, and then I made it for my cousin Jeff, and he concurred. I’ll make and post the recipes soon (with full attribution, DD!).
