It is almost 90 degrees here in Canada - believe it or not! Been invited to a pot luck out doors. I can make my old standby salads with various non creamy dressings, but want to do something more interesting. Was thinking of grilling zucchini or eggplant then rolling the ribbons around mozzarella and baking with a light tomato concasse on top sprinkled with fresh basil and parm. But, when the cheese is room temp, it won't be too appealing.
Then was thinking of the eggplant parm that Giada had on her Capri special. That would be good room temp.
Was also thinking of a zucchini or asparagus or potato frittata, but eggs outdoors make me nervous, even though we will be eating right away.
What about a pan bagnat? - Any good recipes? I am not sure if we want to eat a sandwich though.
Any other ideas? I would like to use some fresh, seasonal ingredients.
