  1. I guess we both had salads on the brain today- what a gorgeous use of summery veggies!

  2. I love that saying! And I love my capers packed in salt~

    This is a beautiful salad..I have to make it..Fresh basil..pancetta..the photos are beautiful also~

  3. This is a salad I've eaten a million times, but i like your addition of the salted capers. And, sometimes I just forget about that ice bath. A good reminder.The photo is gorgeous.

  4. I am going to try the recipe, sounds wonderful!

  5. Simple perfection! Love the pancetta in there!

  6. This looks beautiful, and I couldn't agree with you more about not undercooking green beans. I cook them exactly the way I cook spaghetti - in tons of boiling salted water and taste, taste, taste until done just right. Then I drain them, toss them with butter or olive oil or the fat that has just dripped from a rotisseried chicken, and sprinkle with Maldon sea salt.

  7. This looks so yummy Elaine! Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend! xo

  8. Mmm Elaine - another tastey dinner - perfect for tonight!

  9. This sounds delicious. I can't wait to try it.

  10. This is a wonderful recipe. It's easy, light, and delicious.

  11. This just proves that fresh is best. You can get the main ingredients from your backyard.
