Summer Salads

Summer Salads

This week we have beautiful lettuces from Heron Pond and Clark Farm in Massachusetts and South Paw Farm in Maine.  Summer Lettuce, because I'm incredibly creative and can make giant cognitive leaps, makes me think of Summer Salads. 

A favorite Summer Salad is the Salade niçoise, a classic mix of tuna, potatoes, hard boiled eggs, beans, and tomatoes. This beaut comes to us from Nealy Dozier at the KITCHN (check her out at www.dixiecaviar.com). 

This salad is infinitely riff-able. I like to add raw corn kernels tossed in a dressing with any herbs we have kicking around and a smattering of red onions.

Any tinned fish will do, but you could also go full blown heresy and skip the fish all together. Chicken Salad with Dijonaise? Sure! Grilled Tofu with Olives and Capers? The world is your vegan oyster. While you're at it, grab some crisp rosé and a crusty bread. Share it, don't share it. 100% not my business. 

We hope you are basking in the beautiful weather and that you have a delicious weekend.

Love, 

Your Family Dinner Fam

RECIPES (MA)

(from Shannon)

Bacon - Corn Stuffed Peppers - The bells are gorgeous this week and looking to be the star of the plate! 

Roasted Carrots - I know the oven might not be a welcome thought, but these are basically candy to me! Don't forget to use the carrot tops for a chimichurri or pesto to go with pasta or proteins! 

Ginger Gold Apples - While it states they're a good eating apple or perfect for salads since they brown slowly, I think making a caramel apple french toast with the cinnamon raisin bread from A&J King is the only logical choice... Just saying. 

Sea Bass with Tomatoes, Corn, and Basil - Nice, light, easy meal for you to enjoy any night this week! 

Roasted Kabocha - We're starting to get little glimpses into fall, but fear thee not! This is a gorgeous squash to roast and you can also turn into a veggie burger as well.  (I made these a few years ago, delish!)

RECIPES (ME/NH)

(from Joe)

Easy Sole Meuniere - As quintessentially French as it gets and now that it doesn't feel like 100º outside, cooking inside doesn't seem so masochistic.

Bacon Wrapped Trout - Speaking of cooking indoors, if you're getting trout and/or bacon this week, this is what I'd be leaning towards. Alongside, I'd happily serve either...

Sauteed Baby Bok Choy or Green Beans with Crisp Shallots - Great and simple side dishes that you can easily tweak to suit the rest of the meal.

Watermelon, Feta, and Mint Salad Recipe - Summer ain't over! Simple, tasty, and refreshing as heck. Would definitely not be shy about throwing in some other seasonal veg like cukes or, as Kenji suggests, grilled and then chilled corn.

Tofu and Bok Choy Stir-Fry -  I would eat pounds of this. Excessively drizzled with chili crisp.

Bacon and Gouda Frittata - Could/would/should toss in other veg if you have it. And now I'm thinking about a grilled cheese/breakfast sandwich with bacon and gouda. No recipe needed there.
