Nothing helps a vegetable go down without a struggle like a little sweetness. We’re particularly fond of this lovely zucchini delivery system.
This simple elixir, er, spritzer draws on sweet cherries, tart lime, and sugar syrup. Splash into sparkling wine or seltzer as needed throughout the dog days of summer.
Grab your appetite, your beer, and your napkins. This burger melds Cheddar, crisped onions, and a horseradish-spiked sauce to messy, if memorable, effect.
Fresh herbs, a squeeze of lemon, and a foolproof (and fun to say!) technique lend this grilled chicken its effusive Greek accent.
A sprightly seasonal classic, this variant on a Pimm’s Cup is a wham bam grand slam of booze, orange, lemon, cucumber, mint, and lemon-lime soda.
Sweet and simple. Nothing but cabbage, cider vinegar, sugar, mayo, a little onion, salt, and oil. Just like you’d find at a BBQ shack.
Lovely. That’s all we can think to say of this array of deviled eggs, which come in classic, smoked salmon, and lightly truffled.
If spring had a taste, we dare say it’d be this simple yet sophisticated tart with its cheese custard, shatteringly crisp phyllo crust, and row after row of spring spears.
Flecks of brilliant orange and green bejewel this not-so-common quick bread, but what adds a royal je ne sais quoi is the robust bursts of candied ginger.
Mmmm. Beef back ribs are massaged with a sweetly spicy rub and then slooooooowly cooked to tender terrificness. Yes, please.
Never give zucchini away again with these equally tempting yet uniquely different slaws—choose rich and creamy or tart and sweet.
A British take on potato salad that’s both simple and sublime, this summery staple draws on the tart richness of creme fraiche and the pucker of lemon.
Heirloom tomatoes go on ice for this simple yet elegant sorbet. Use yellow, red, orange, or purple fruit, but my all means, make this sorbet.
The ingredients couldn’t be more accessible. The results couldn’t be less expected.
