Nicoise Salad and Other Earthly Delights
Summer weekend dinner, inspired by Mark Bittman's "Summer Express: 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less"
Pimm's Cups: 1 part Pimm's + 2 parts sparkling lemonade + cucumber spear or lemon slice = Garden Party!
These were enjoyed first at the Spider's BBQ / Gala / Tiarafest (graciously hosted by the talented Virginia), then with said Nicoise Salad!
And for Catty and Moses... a new felty/catnippy toy!
Thanks, Auntie Craptina!

What, no tomatoes in the salade nicoise? I can't wait til they hit my farmer's market :)
You looked mah-velous with a tiara Darling!
I misplaced your site for awhile and when I finally find myself back, here are three of my favorite things: Pimms, salad nicoise and Mark Bitman. All three made visits to my house this week...well, to clarify, a pimms and ginger, and How to Cook Everything's coconut chicken. Mark didn't actually drop by. Wouldn't that be nice!
YES to Pimms in the summer with friends!! And I have gotten a ton of mileage out of the Bitman article, have you seen that it's been consistently #1 on the Times website?
Mmm. I don't think a nicoise salad has ever looked so yummy!
Mmmm, I love Pimm's! At Wimbledon we had it with slices of orange, lemon, cucumber and strawberry on a toothpick. I also love that you can get Pimm's and lemonade in a can here, I buy it all the time now that I'm sucked into the English way of needing a drink after work every day!
Must try this!
Lemonade with ANYTHING in it is fun.
The salad and the beverage look great but I LOVE seeing Catty :)
I was so confused- my initial thought was "why is there a pickle in that drink?"
Everything looks yummy!
Hmm, the Pimm's Cups in mmy house would definitely be lemon slices. The idea of cucumber...yuck. But that's just me, I fully understand that some people like them. Just not me....
Your food photos, as always, are so stunning, they almost make me wish I cooked. Or even had the motivation to prepare a salad for myself. Maybe someday, when I'm a grown-up....
Okay, you just made me hungry :) And a little thirsty ;)
thanks for the shout out...... I never did get to try one of you PIMS cups :( Is your cat nip toy in shreds? My are too gross to photo. The cats have killed them.
OK, but did it really take you 10 minutes? Love that list, but even with the water-boiling caveat, I am skeptical!
Or I'm really freaking slow. Maybe.
Hi Catty! Glad to see you looking so happy and well :)
Beautiful cat - tricolor:))
I took 1 st loans when I was very young and it aided me a lot. However, I require the short term loan as well.
