Question Of The Day - Wednesday, July 9th!

Summer is upon us!

What is your favorite summer meal?

I love a good chicken salad. I have a great recipe that has chicken, apples, grapes, celery, romaine lettuce, toasted pecans and mayo. It's great as a salad, and yummy in a croissant sandwich. I think I need to make up a big batch tonight...ymmmmmm!!!

Funny you mention salads because i've just had a lovely salad with baby new potatoes, little gem lettuce, ham, tomotoes and cucumber, all smothered in salad cream I should have had a bit crusty bread as well though

Something cool (and easy to make) like a submarine, hoagie, torpedo, dagwood sandwich, etc.

There is this place (Panera) that in the Summer Sells a Tomato & Fresh Mozzarella Salad (of course THIS year they put a kibosh on that great salad with the 'great american tomato salmonella scare' which deprived me of this wonderful salad thus far)...

Vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, red onions, fresh basil, salt, pepper & balsamic vinaigrette, over freshly-baked focaccia

Heavenly

I think you guys are trying to make me gain weight with all these delicious food questions lately... I love it!

My all time favorite summer food would have to be soumen. It's a Japanese dish, cold noodles in a bowl of ice water, you dip them in "tsuyu", an almost soyu-like sauce with green onions and seasame seeds. Takes about 5 mins to make, and is cool and refreshing!

Pair that up with a salad, grilled corn on the cob, fresh fruit, and anything BBQ, and it's summer for sure!!

I'll have to agree with all of you with Corn on the Cob... OMG...

At Family Summertime BBQ's forget all that other junk... fill my plate with a few ears of corn and I'm good to go

Yes! Corn on the cob!
Fresh Michigan fruits: blueberries, cherries and peaches in particular
Locally field-grown lettuce - amazing how good it tastes when it's not trucked in from someplace 2,000 miles away
Anything cooked on the BBQ

Basically anything off the bbq. Our dinner last night was really good. We had bbq steaks, baked potatoes and green beans with garlic and butter made on the bbq. It was so good.

Rigel, always the carnivore, right!

I love corn on the cob, too. We have a farm stand near here with the best fresh corn and tomatoes. I love them, too, and no salmonella.
I love making fruit salad with summer fruits. Sometimes we just have that with bread. In fact, it is so hot today that I may make it tonight.

Anything on the BBQ, too, especially chicken in my homemade sweet chile BBQ sauce.

I would have to agree with corn on the cob-I planted a goodly amount in the garden and should hopefully have a good crop due to the rains we've had.

I like when my tomatoes are ready and make a good BLT. Artisan bakery bread, mayo, my tomatoes and lettuce and Neuske's bacon(made in Wisconsin) (or I suppose another premium bacon would do).

aka Garden Candy. There are six vines about 20 feet from me, with fruit all over and the first ones are red.

As for what specific meal, well I'd have to agree with "grilled anything" -- there's so much that's wonderful, it's impossible to single one out.

My summer favorites are fresh, sweet, ripe cherries, blueberries, and blackberries, and also anything from the ocean - throw it on the grill, even better.
