Seasonal Sundays (Week 32) Summer Salad Suppers

Who else would be over-the-moon happy with a big salad for dinner Every.Single.Day? And who else, in summer, wishes for more days because ... more summery salads, please! Let me tempt you!

Seasonal Sundays (Week 31) Cool Down with Gazpacho

When the temps go up-up-up, it's time to cool down-down-down with gazpacho. Here I share three different recipes, a traditional Spanish-style tomato gazpacho, another that mixes tomato and melon, plus a bright-bright green fruit gazpacho that's so flexible it can be a main course, an appetizer, even a dessert. Also! Let me know what you think about the brand-new "Pick Three" format. Also! Where I've been for the last month, yes, that familiar pink ribbon is a give-away.

Fresh Creamed Corn

This is not your mama's can of creamed corn ! Instead, it's my long-time recipe for homemade creamed corn, full of summer's best fresh corn sweetness and real corn kernels, accented with fresh rosemary or fresh lavender. This is absolutely gorgeous, a must-make recipe when summer's sweet corn is at its finest. Creamed Corn, Made from Scratch & Nothing Like Canned Creamed Corn. Real Food, Fresh & Inventive. A Summer Classic. Budget Friendly. Weeknight Easy, Weekend Special. Easy DIY. Weight Watchers Friendly. Vegetarian. Naturally Gluten Free. What're you waiting for?!

Southwestern Chicken Taco Salad Plates

A summer-y salad plate reminiscent of a de-constructed chicken taco. No cooking required, that's thanks to meat from a rotisserie chicken, a Quick Corn Relish made with fresh sweet corn plus a Quick Salsa Dressing with just three ingredients that's so good, I recommend stirring together extra for other salads later on. If only all meals were this easy, this delish! Whole Food, Fresh & Seasonal. No Cooking, Just Assembly. Hearty & Filling & Flexible. Another Quick Supper , a Kitchen Parade Specialty. Not just easy, Summer Easy . Budget Friendly. Weeknight Easy, Weekend Special. Scales from Small Plates to Large Platters. High Protein. Weight Watchers Friendly. What're you waiting for?!

Cucumber-Mango Salad

Eat more fruits and vegetables! Good advice, right? So! Here's one way to eat both healthy foods at once, a simple vegetable-fruit salad, a compelling partnership of wet crunchy cucumber and sweet soft mango united by a simple lime vinaigrette with the tiniest spikes of honey and hot sauce . Be prepared to put this salad on your list of "favorite summer recipes" – an intriguing/compelling/surprising side for summer suppers like fish, burgers, grilled chicken, etc. So good, this!
