Favourite summer recipes?

Even though we're in the middle of a heat wave here in T.O. I've been spending the day in trhe kitchen and Loving it. One of those days!! I've already marinated some lamb loin chops for tomorrow, dry rubbed 60 chicken wings to freeze for down the road and made a delicious chilled cauliflower and celery root buttermilk soup. I then did a quick search to figure out what to do with the leftover buttermilk. Viola I found a wonderful post about the epicurious lemon buttermilk sorbet, which is now chilling in the fridge as I type this. It looks like a winner too!!

I keep a log of my tried and true recipes so I don't forget them and as I was entering the soup and sorbet from above it got me thinking...

What are your favorite tried and true summer recipes? Recipes you love and make at least once or twice each summer? I will start off with the soup above. It was easy to do, healthy and delicious.

Cauliflower, Celery Root and Buttermilk Vicchysoise

1 tbsp. EVOO
1 tbsp. butter
3 cups sliced leeks
1 1/2 cups thinly diced celery root
4 cups clauliflower florets
1 tsp. cumin
3 cups chicken or veggie broth
1 cup buttermilk

Saute all vegetables, and cumin until softened. Add stock, cover and simmer until tender, approximately 10 minutes. Blend in blender. Add buttermilk. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary. Chill.

Okay, your turn :)
