Fourth of July: Roquefort Burger Menu
Toasted Rosemary Pecans
Cold Cucumber and Yogurt Soup with Dill
Inside-Out Roquefort Cheeseburgers
Tomato Salad with Crispy Shallots
When Fanny Singer makes this salad, she remembers her mom, Alice Waters, taking her to spend the Japanese New Year with the Chinos, a San Diego farm family that has been growing heirloom tomatoes for Berkeley's Chez Panisse forever. Fanny's twist on the restaurant recipe is to add shallots treated two ways: marinated in vinegar and fried to make a rich, salty garnish.
Herbed Potato Salad
Chile-Spiked Grilled Corn Rolled in Cotija Cheese
Salted Fudge Brownies
F&W's Kate Krader has been making these fudgy, sweet-salty brownies since she was 10 years old. As a kid she used regular table salt; now she recommends a flaky sea salt like Maldon, because the flavor is less harsh and it melts so nicely into the batter, accentuating the chocolaty sweetness.
