The Cajun Connoisseur from BellaOnline
Although the first day of summer was June 21, for me,
summer doesn’t begin until the 4th of July – or at least not
until the early tomatoes we planted in the kitchen garden have
finally turned from pale green to a bright, juicy red. This year,
we are in for a double treat as our peppers are ripe as well. I
can’t wait to begin harvesting these home grown beauties and
creating more summer fun recipes!
To celebrate the bounty of fresh summer vegetables, this
issue is dedicated to cool summer salads. Each recipe is
best made several hours before and then thoroughly chilled
before serving. Full of flavor, color, and texture, scrumptious
summer salads are terrific with grilled meats, fish, chicken or
alone as an entrée. Add crusty bread or rolls and you have a
delicious, easy meal.
1) Creole Shrimp Remoulade
2) Creole Rice Salad
3) Summer Tomato Corn Salad
4) Southern Pea Salad
Creole Shrimp Remoulade on a bed of Baby Greens
Serve this delicious classic as an appetizer or an entrée.
Either way, you can’t go wrong.
Creole Rice Salad
Crisp fresh vegetable, perfectly steamed rice and a piquant
dressing make this flavorful salad a summer favorite.
Summer Tomato Corn Salad
Full of fresh tomatoes, zucchini, corn, and bell peppers, this
fresh summer salad is a feast for the eye as well as the
Southern Pea Salad
A year round favorite, Southern Pea Salad is especially good
when the weather warms up.
I hope you will enjoy my tasty summer salads. For even more
