Rule #189: The purpose of summer grilling season is to leave the oven off.
Corn and asparagus pair perfectly to create a refreshingly light summer salad. A perfect side for the summer grilling season and a great excuse to leave that oven off.
I’m not usually a one-upper or a fan of them, but in this case I’ll make an exception. This One-Upper Caprese Salad is a spin on the classic caprese. Normally, it would be some sliced heirloom tomatoes, delicious mozzarella, basil, olive oil, salt, and pepper. In this updated, sassier version, we’re using green pesto and lemon juice and garnishing the whole thing with a little crispy proscuitto. Sometimes, it’s good to be a one-upper.
