Spring officially arrived a few days ago, and lunch on the porch is usually the order of the day. When a friend arrived to join us on this day, however, a too cool breeze brought with it a fresh dusting of yellow green pollen, and we opted to stay indoors.
Grilled salmon is mixed with capers, celery, red onion, dill, raspberry vinegar and olive oil for this salad. Gazpacho is a staple in our fridge once the weather begins to warm. Those glass mugs are 1950s era Fostoria glass — a gift from my late mother-in-law’s own kitchen. I like their geometric look and chunky feel; the perfect vessel for a root beer float.
