At Endless Simmer we love to do all kinds of muddling, messing around, and wrapping in bacon, but the truth about food is that when you have perfect ingredients you barely need to do anything at all to them before eating. And that’s never more true than in the first week of August.
Friends who were out of town this weekend had me pick up their CSA share, and boy was it the right week to do so. Beautiful fresh basil, multi-colored corn, two kinds of peaches (fleshy orange ones, and white, juicy donut peaches), plus cherry tomatoes about as perfect as they get. Let’s just say those friends won’t see any of their share when they’re back in town this Monday. We mixed them all up in a salad that was just unbelievably perfect.
But…being akin to experimentation, I had to get just a little crazy with said salad. We also had a couple of ripe poblano peppers on hand, so I put a spin on chile rellenos and stuffed those babies with this delicious summer salad.
