Perfect for the season, this salad features three of the shining stars of summer—corn, tomatoes, and basil. It’s great for entertaining as all the parts can be prepared ahead of time and tossed together at the last minute.
Creamy Corn Soup with Cumin-salted Tortilla Strips
Luxuriously thick, this seasonal soup is very low in calories, especially if you leave out the tortilla chips. You can really boost the corn flavor by simmering the cobs in the broth.
Nectarine and Plum Upside-down Cake
When fresh stone fruit are in season there’s no better time to try this easy summer dessert. You could use all nectarines, all plums, or throw peaches into the mix.
Chilled Two Melon Soup with Balsamic-marinated Strawberries and Sour Cream
This totally refreshing summertime soup is a breeze to make; all you need is a blender. The key is to find really ripe melons.
Stuffed Zucchini Greek Style
A mix of wonderful Mediterranean ingredients (ground lamb, olives, cheese, and tomatoes) fills this sun-ripened zucchoni. A great dish for entertaining, you can prepare it ahead through stuffing, then finish and bake just before serving.
Berry Rice Pudding
My family loves rice pudding but I don't have time to make it from scratch on a weeknight. However, there is a good chance you have leftover rice every so often from a take-out meal; here's a tasty way to recycle it.
Slow-roasted Baby Back Ribs
One of my all-time favorite trips for “Cooking Live” was to Memphis to cover the annual barbecue cook-off there. If I’d never understood it before, I do now. Barbecuing, done right, is clearly an art that takes years to perfect.
Creamed Spinach with Crispy Shallots
Creamed spinach was one of those special-occasion side dishes my mom served up as kids. Although she usually worked with frozen spinach, which is fine, it’s even better using fresh spinach.
In “Sara Moulton Cooks at Home” I included “four quick chicken recipes” that all start with the same easy prep and become entirely different entrees once the sauce ingredients are added. This is one of them.
Radish and Orange Salad with Peppery Orange Dressing
Radishes just don’t get enough love; I have no idea why. They are peppery and sweet, crunchy and refreshing. Add oranges, arugula, and olives for a great salad.
Eggplant Rollatini with Four Cheeses
This recipe improves on the traditional version by roasting the eggplant rather than frying so it a lot easier to prepare and lower in fat. If you don't have the time to make the sauce, substitute your favorite prepared brand.
Grilled Lamb and Onion Kabobs with Olive Aioli
Lemon, olive oil, rosemary, and garlic – this is my favorite marinade for lamb. They work well together because both the marinade and the lamb are products of the Mediterranean.
