You can write a book about what to cook during the summer time, and I almost complete an entire cookbook each season, but sometimes I’m in such a rush to make the great dishes that i love that I , almost, forget to cover the basics. With just a few weeks left of summer, but months left for farm fresh veggies and grilling, today I want to turn my attention to some of the classics, and look for interesting new riffs on the classic pasta salads, coleslaw, potato salad, grilled veggies, and abundant tomatoes that are staple on some patios this time of year.
While your old tried and true versions of the classic dishes are no doubt delicious. I mean you are making them over, and over, and over again, there is always room for some innovation and to allow some creativity to creep in to our culinary world. So let’s get inspired by these creative recipes. Not everyone is sure to be a winner, but as a group, it’s a great way to get the creative juices flowing. Not to mention your mouth watering. So what will you be preparing this weekend??
