I shut down my computer, turned out the lights in my den, poured myself a lovely glass of merlot … and opened the fridge. Hum … what could I make that is fast, stress-less and tasty?
Were you thinking grilled burgers, hot dogs and potato salad? … if you want to make your summer meal classy you need to bump it up to a grilled steak with some sassy side dishes.
I want to remind you that we are in tomato season, so use these local beauties when they are at their peak of taste and freshness.
This salad is classic “Booke” – I used everything I had in my fridge and cupboards, and only what I had in my fridge and cupboards!
Well, here we are – the last course of my 4-course celebration dinner for the future “Dr. Dan!” I love-love-love heart of palm, which comes from the inner core and growing bud of certain palm trees.
This is my third installment of the celebration menu I prepared for my son Dan when he stopped for a visit a week ago – Grilled Salmon with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
