Although the first day of summer is a few weeks away, the month of June can be humid. Seinfeld’s Elaine knew what to eat on hot days -— eat “The Big Salad,” of course. With minimal effort, some fresh vegetables, and some leftover meat, it’s easy to beat the heat, and serve a real meal on a hot summery day.
Has this winter made you grow as a person? Now that it’s spring, do you feel there is more of you to love? And are you not loving this development? Feel like the words pleasingly plump, zaftig and Rubenesque are getting a little too personally descriptive? Clearly, this is the season for big salads, not big buns. We needed some of those comforting winter carbs that gave us energy to shovel that snow, but spring and summer call for salads.
