My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Summer Salad

The gardens are going crazy! The early warm weather and lots of rain is great. I stopped by David's produce stand on Wednesday to check on all his beautiful stuff. He had baby kale ready. I was all over that, a big bag. Radishes and scallions ready by the the weekend.

Several people I have talked to and on the net are cooking out for Easter. Great idea with the weather so nice. This would be a great salad for any meal you're planning.

Summer Salad
serves 4
print recipe

1 bunch red radishes, trimmed, scrubbed, and thinly sliced
1 bunch scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced (include some of the green)
1 medium cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
2 cups plain yogurt (I prefer Greek yogurt)
Kosher salt and freshly ground white or black pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until well-chilled.
