{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Sweet Corn, Cucumber Salad

 

Sweet Corn, Cucumber Salad

http://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/food-and-cooking/recipes/sweet-corn-cucumber-salad/article_a24750ec-49fb-58d7-b01f-cfd4e17970ed.html

Yield: 6 servings

For the salad

4 cups sweet corn kernels (frozen or cut off cob, blanched and cooled)

2 cups diced cucumber (peeled and seeded if seeds are large)

1/2 cup diced sweet pepper of any color

1/4 cup diced sweet yellow onion

2 to 3 large fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

 

For the dressing

3 tablespoons pesto or amogio (recipe below)

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Notes: This salad can be made several hours up to a day in advance. It will hold several days in the refrigerator for leftovers.

• Amogio may be used fresh over pasta or meat. Keep it in the refrigerator to use as needed. It will solidify a bit in the refrigerator.

 

1. In a large mixing bowl, add corn, diced cucumber, pepper and onion and toss to blend. Add basil and blend.

2. Stir pesto or amogio and mayonnaise together to make the dressing.

3. Toss the vegetables with the dressing, until just coated but not dripping. This is not a heavily dressed salad.

4. Add a sprinkle of sea salt and few grinds of pepper to finish.

5. Cover and refrigerate until served.

{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Tomatoes are the stars of Chilled BLT Soup

 

Tomatoes are the stars of Chilled BLT Soup

http://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/food-and-cooking/tomatoes-are-the-stars-of-chilled-blt-soup/article_dcc4ab29-e026-529e-9ade-04067858c6c4.html  

Everyone knows Joyce Kilmer’s love song to trees — “I think that I shall never see/ a poem lovely as a tree.”  (Jodi memorized this as a child.  It was one of my mom’s favorite poems)

That’s the way I feel about tomatoes. Accordingly, Chilled BLT Soup puts the “T” in BLT. Yes, there’s bacon and lettuce, and some toast, too, in the form of croutons. But the star of this show is the tomato in its season.

How do you know whether you’re buying a good tomato? To start, pick it up. It should feel heavy, which lets you know it’s ripe and juicy. Then take a whiff of the stem end. It should smell strongly like ... a tomato. Once you get it home, store it on the counter, out of the sun. If it’s not fully red, just leave it alone. It will continue to ripen at room temperature. Don’t put a whole uncut tomato in the refrigerator. Chilling it will kill the flavor and the texture.

You want to salt your tomatoes ahead of time, before you cook them, a step that helps to concentrate their flavor. First salt the large tomatoes, which form the base of the soup. Then salt the quartered tomatoes, which provide crunch.

The tomatoes in this recipe don’t need to be seeded or peeled. That’s because you’re going to puree them in a blender until smooth. (Use a blender, not a food processor, which doesn’t produce a smooth texture.) Also, if you seed the tomatoes, you lose a lot of the jelly surrounding the seeds — and that jelly is where the tomato essence lives.

On the chance that you’ve somehow underrated tomatoes before, this deeply flavorful and refreshing soup will show you what you’ve been missing.

Ingredients

Yield: 4 servings

3 pounds large tomatoes

Kosher salt

2 cups 1/2-inch bread cubes

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

4 slices bacon

1 pound cherry tomatoes, quartered

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon finely minced garlic

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

Black pepper

1 cup shredded romaine

 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Core and cut the large tomatoes into 1/2-inch thick wedges. In a large bowl toss the wedges with 1 teaspoon salt and set them aside for 1 hour.

3. Meanwhile, on a large rimmed sheet pan toss the bread cubes with 1 tablespoon olive oil until they are well coated. Sprinkle them very lightly with salt and toss again. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven until they are golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Set them aside to cool.

4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the bacon until it is crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. When the bacon is cool, crumble it and set it aside.

5. In a strainer set over a bowl toss the cherry tomatoes with 1/2 teaspoon salt and let them drain for 15 minutes.

6. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise with the garlic, the lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the tomato juice from the drained cherry tomatoes and stir well.

7. Working in batches, transfer the tomato wedges and their liquid to a blender and blend until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl, stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the sherry vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the cherry tomatoes and chill the soup until it is cold.

8. To serve: Spoon 1/4 of the soup into each of the 4 soup bowls. Drizzle each portion with some of the mayonnaise and top with the bacon, the romaine and the croutons.
