Our Dream Summer Dinner Menu
The best thing about summer produce is that it doesn’t require much cooking. And when it’s this hot outside, that’s exactly what you want. Perfectly ripe tomatoes, sweet corn, fresh herbs—these ingredients need very little in the way of manipulation to taste their absolute best. So we put together a clean and simple summer menu designed to let summer’s bounty shine (and to keep you, Chef, cool, calm, and collected). The only thing missing is a good bottle of rosé…or two.
Creamy ranch is good on everything you put it on, but on perfectly ripe tomatoes it’s sublime.
goop readers ask for recipes for simple broiled salmon all the time. This technique is easy as pie and totally foolproof.
This light yet filling grain salad screams summer in the best kind of way. Plus, leftovers pack up easily to make a satisfying but healthy lunch.
Almonds, blackberries, and nectarines are a match made in summer heaven, but this recipe also works well with apples, pears, rhubarb, or any other fruit, depending on the season.
