My apartment has an air conditioning unit in the window, but to call it “air conditioned” can be a bit of a stretch, especially during these hot, humid summer days. That’s why being able to limit by use of the oven and use the stove only sparingly is critical in my recipe selection. It’s really just another aspect of cooking seasonally, right?
Most people are familiar with caprese salad: tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. It’s simple to make, looks great with the beautiful heirloom tomatoes I got, and perhaps best of all, requires no cooking!
