This is my favorite summer recipe EVER. It is adapted from the Silver Palate Cookbook — that first one that everyone bought back in the 1980’s when this wonderful series of cookbooks first appeared. If yours is like mine, the binding is cracked and the pages are falling out and you can’t get a new one because you have all these notes and memories marked on the pages, and sentimental splotches of meals gone by staining the pages…and I STILL haven’t made everything I want to make out of this classic cookbook.
But I have made this one, probably 50 times over the years, because it is simple and gorgeous and tastes like heaven on a summertime plate. Let’s make it!
