Easy Pasta Primavera

The word primavera refers to being served with fresh vegetables; it is from the Italian (alla) primavera, or (in the) spring (style). Pasta primavera is almost always a simple-to-prepare dish using the fresh vegetables of the season.

Best Ever Tuna Salad Sandwich

My parents started making tuna fish salad sandwiches this way years ago, and as far as I'm concerned theirs is the best and only way to make a tuna fish sandwich.

First it helps to start with high quality canned tuna. If you have leftover cooked tuna steaks, then by all means use them instead of the canned tuna. Both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods have excellent canned tuna packed in olive oil. (The brand I like at Whole Foods is Wild Planet.)

Cucumber Mint "Shrub" Soda

Have you ever heard of a "shrub" (as in drink, not bush)? It's basically a vinegar-based fruity cordial or soda. The acidity of the vinegar provides tang and intensifies the flavor of the fruit in much the same way that the acidity of lemons balances the sugar in lemonade, and makes lemonade taste so lemony.

Vinegar allows you to make a soda with fruit, without it being cloyingly sweet.

With this cucumber mint soda, first you make a simple syrup with water, sugar, and vinegar. Then you infuse the vinegar simple syrup with fresh mint leaves. To make the soda, you pour the syrup over ice and chopped cucumber and add seltzer water. Easy!

Asian Zucchini Noodle Salad

So, have you taken the plunge and invested in a spiral slicer? I bought one a few months ago and have been experimenting ever since. So far my favorite vegetable to "spiralize" is zucchini.

One quick way to make use of zucchini noodles is to just toss the raw "zoodles" with salad dressing. Instant zucchini salad!

Mexican Street Corn Nachos

There's a reason Mexican street corn, a.k.a. "elote", is so popular these days. Grilled corn on the cob, slathered in a mayo sour cream sauce, sprinkled with cotija and chili powder? Yes, please!

Well, how about all of the brilliant deliciousness of street corn, in the form of nachos?

Sopa Seca de Fideo

Our favorite way of preparing angel hair nests is a Mexican dish called "sopa seca de fideo". It's a lot like pilaf, but made with thin noodles instead of rice.

The name "sopa seca de fideo" translates to "dry soup with noodles". It's not soup, it's called a "dry soup" because the noodles absorb all of the wonderful rich stock, making the noodles taste more delicious than you can possibly imagine.

Gazpacho

Tomatoes are in da house! Or garden, or market. Summer's bounty is in full swing, and if you, like me, have more tomatoes ripening on the vine than you can eat in salads or BLTs, try this gazpacho. It's a chilled tomato and vegetable soup, perfect for sweltering summer days.

Plum Galette

We've got plums and pluots coming out the wazoo at the moment. Every time I mention a potential plum recipe my mother's eyes light up with what appears to be frantic joy; she can't give them away fast enough and she's tired of making plum freezer jam (20 pints and counting).

Unfortunately, the plums required for this recipe hardly put a dent in her inventory; only a little more than a pound is needed.
