Summer Lunch

Summer Breeze

Summer is finally here.  So put on your sundress, invite over your friends, open the bubbly and enjoy an outdoor lunch.

Start with a Rillette with Duck and Pork and a Brandade de Morue (Salt Cod and Potato puree)

Next, treat your guests to a refreshing Salade Nicoise with Tuna.

Salade Nicoise is an easily prepared dish with high visual impact.  So you can impress folks.  Use fresh tuna, lightly seared  and quail eggs to bring added elegance to this dish.  Add haricot vert, greens, olives, heirloom tomatoes and fingerling potatoes.  
The bright flavor of an olive oil, lemon and mustard vinaigrette gives this dish a Summer finish.

Add some fresh cut Papaya splashed with lime juice to the table to bring bright color, keeping lunch light and invigorating.
