Summer Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, and Basil
By
Because heirloom tomatoes are grown from non-hybridized seeds, they are packed full of more flavor and often have less acid. Of course you can use any tomatoes in this recipe, but look for heirlooms and you’ll be in for a treat. Look for the green-striped ones, orange, and even bright yellow. This recipe is from The Freekeh Cookbook; click here for more information on the cookbook. Click here for more freekeh recipes.

Clemenceau’d Shrimp
Traditionally, Clemenceau’d Shrimp is a composed dish, with all the ingredients ending up in the same skillet before plating. For a twist and a dare (forgive me, tradition!), I like to separate the components. I think this pretties the Clemenceau up, and, instead of all the flavors colliding in one pot as in the classic version, it allows the diner to bring the flavors together at the table. Believe it or not, so-called “Meyer” lemons are not lemons at all. They are thought to be a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. They are sweeter and rounder in flavor than a regular lemon, so they can be an excit­ing substitute for more common citrus. Microplanes used to be exclusively for carpenters and woodworkers. But now that chefs have discovered them, they are in every commercial kitchen in town. If your housewares depart­ment doesn’t have them, check your hardware store (or use your grater, but really, the ’plane is amazing for zest!). From Treme, by Lolis Eric Elie.

Farro with Sweet Peas and Ricotta
It’s not easy to make whole grains taste light, or look sophisticated. Yet, they’re so satisfying — not to mention, good for us — that it’s certainly worth giving it a try. As far as whole grains go, farro has been stealing the spotlight lately. Mostly grown in Italy, farro actually refers to several kinds of wheat — including emmer, einkorn, and spelt — which have been cultivated in Europe since ancient times. The most commonly grown wheat in Italy, and the one you’ll most likely end up buying, is emmer. It’s a fairly large grain, with a lovely nutty flavor and a pleasing, chewy texture. Emmer is best cooked in plenty of water until fluffed up but still al dente. In this recipe, this fashionable grain is served with crunchy sweet peas and creamy ricotta (ideally, homemade!). The fresh herbs and lemony vinaigrette further brighten the flavors, making this dish as light and yummy as any whole grain could possibly taste. Serve this quintessential spring dish as a salad, or as a main course, with these Carrots and Fennel Braised with Orange Zest and Honey. Either way, dig into this wholesome-yet-delicious bowl of farro. You’ll be glad you did!
