Easy Ham Salad

A great way to use up leftover ham, especially if it's been in the freezer. My version of ham salad keeps the mayonnaise to a bare minimum, just enough to bind the ham, sweet onion and celery together, highlighting that coveted smoky ham flavor. For anyone who still has Easter ham – or Christmas ham?! – in the freezer, get it out to thaw asap. Ham salad's on the menu.

Finnish Summer Soup – Kesäkeitto

A taste of summer sunshine, the Finnish classic recipe for "summer soup", in Finnish that's kesäkeitto (kesä meaning summer and keitto meaning soup). Traditionally, Finnish Summer Soup's milky broth is packed with the season's first tiny garden-fresh vegetables: sumptous, that tradition. Me, I make Finnish Summer Soup all summer long with all kinds of vegetables: we lap it up, one potful after another.
