Winter Favorite In Summer Heat

"That dinner was perfect," James said.
I couldn't have been more surprised.
I've been trying to clear out the freezer (and make it to farmers market day without shopping, in spite of the fact I missed last week's market) and so I pulled out a container of salt cod purée (brandade -- yes a Christmas favorite) and spread it over thin slices of ciabatta drizzled with olive oil. I sprinkled the tops with chili peppers and more olive oil and set the tray under the broiler for just a couple minutes. Meanwhile I mixed up a salad of lettuce from the yard, prosciutto, Romano cheese, red onion, and sliced pear dressed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
A perfect summertime dinner.
