Arugula Salad with Caroline’s Dressing and Corn, Chipotle and Potato Soup
Sautee one chopped white onion, add minced garlic and one minced Chipotle pepper in Adobo Sauce (Goya). Then add fresh kernels from 5 ears of corn and sautee for a few minutes, add Yukon potatoes (3/4 inch) and cover with chicken broth. Boil then simmer for a 15 minutes. Turn off while the potatoes are still firm, as they’ll continue to cook in the hot broth. Serve at warm temperature with cilantro.

Antipasta
Grilled eggplant, feta and Zema tomato salad tossed with white balsamic vinegar, lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. For the pasta, saute a heaping handful of minced fresh sage in a few tbls of butter and olive oil (this is one recipe where a little butter is absolutely necessary to balance the pungent sage). To this, add two cans of butter beans and al dente whole wheat orzo. Lightly cook the pasta and bean mixture in the sage butter until well coated.
