Fourth of July: Roasted Pork Ribs Menu
White Bean Dip with Herbs
Drizzling a high quality olive oil over this dip will add depth and complexity.
Tuscan-Style Spareribs with Balsamic Glaze
Bruce Aidells, author of Bruce Aidells's Complete Book of Pork, loves to barbecue spareribs, but his favorite way to prepare them is to generously season the ribs with a mix of aromatic herbs and spices and slow-roast them until tender and crisp. Like his favorite Tuscan cooks, he finishes the ribs with a simple balsamic glaze.
Watermelon and Arugula Salad with Walnuts
This recipe is a fabulous blend of juicy (watermelon) and crunchy (red onions and walnuts). For anyone who thinks raspberry vinegar went out with the '90s, this fruity vinaigrette will be a revelation.
Chopped Salad with Beets, Beans, Goat Cheese and Hazelnuts
Reserve the beet greens and use them as a bed for whole grilled fish: Clean the greens, then wilt them in a saucepan with a bit of water, olive oil and salt.
Hazelnut-Nutella Sandwich Cookies
Ground hazelnuts in the dough give these Nutella sandwich cookies extra crunch.
