There will be six of us for dinner Saturday night, including a couple of really good cooks, meaning that if I try to compete, I fail. So what to serve? I may write good books, but a gourmet cook I am not.
My gut tells me that it’s best to go with simple and fresh, which, this time of year in the Northeast, means a big multi-ingredient salad. Fresh veggies and fruit, lettuce from the garden, sweet corn … they’re my key ingredients. Hey, don’t yawn. Salad may be healthy, but it doesn’t have to be boring.
