Cooking Tip

3 Salad Tips -

• Fresh Ingredients Matter: With a dish that's so completely dependent on one or two ingredients (lettuce or greens), the kind of lettuce you're buying matters a great deal. While the packaged lettuces are convenient, they're often frozen and transported to your local grocery store, so they'll never taste as fresh and delicious as a local bunch of lettuce. Take a little extra time with the washing and chopping — it'll pay off in flavor.

• Break out the Mandoline: I always hate recommending that readers buy a new piece of kitchen equipment, but if you don't yet have a mandoline, they work wonders for making an inspired, delicious salad. Mandolines allow you to very thinly slice vegetables like carrots and radishes, adding visual interest to your salads and allowing you to add many different vegetables without weighing down the greens. If you don't have a mandoline, you can certainly thinly slice these vegetables on your own — it just takes more time and patience, obviously.

• Experiment with Unexpected Ingredients: It's easy to reach for chopped mushrooms, sliced tomatoes or olives for your everyday salad. Maybe you like to scatter in a few sunflower seeds, soft cheeses, or croutons. But what about toasted hazelnuts? Gogi berries? Perserved lemon and capers? How about adding in cooked whole grains like couscous or quinoa for more of a complete meal? Starting to push the envelope on which ingredients belong in a salad can be quite liberating, will help you use up leftovers in the refrigerator, and will likely lead to new favorite salads.

Corn Off The Cob!

To much of the world, corn means merely "grain". But to Americans, the word is one to conjure with, summoning images of an ephemeral summer treat. Famously knee-high by summer's apogee, sweet corn is harvested shortly thereafter, the ears appearing in all their golden, silk-tasseled glory at produce stands across the country. Mowing down rows of kernels as you devour corn on the cob is a near-sacred seasonal ritual, but it is only the beginning of corn's culinary clout. Removed from the cob, those same kernels become a prized resource for summer's cooks.

Corn Fritters

Released from their stationary position, these kernels are free to be baked in pies, infused into liquids, sauteed with flavorful ingredients, or cooked in virtually any other manner you can imagine, bringing fresh corn's matchless flavor along with them. Best of all, since each ear contains up to a thousand kernels, there's plenty of summer sweetness to work with.

Embedded in light and fluffy Corn Fritters, kernels of corn provide nuggets of texture as well as flavor. Matched with thick cut bacon, and then topped with maple syrup the fritters are the ideal summer breakfast, simultaneously luxe and casual.

"Up from the meadows rich with corn. Clear is the cool September Morn."
~ John Greenleaf Whittier

Skillet Desserts!

Pull out your cast iron skillet with sweets in mind and discover the creative possibilities. Think cooking, not baking, for a whole new approach to desserts. Apple Tart Tatin might be the best known of this sort, but there are many other good candidates for the skillet, from a plum variation on that French classic to a sticky upside-down coffee cake and a rich chocolate spoon bread.

Generally these desserts may be offered straight from the skillet, or are better left there until just before serving, so it couldn't be easier to bring one over to a friend's house to share. This rich Chocolate Brownie Spoon Bread has a thin, crisp crust and a soft, moist interior. Serve it with fresh berries and whipped cream.
