This salad is fantastic. The bold flavors meld together perfectly for a very satisfying dish. I think it would be perfect for a summer potluck or a side dish for any number of things, like grilled chicken, steak or even shrimp. My favorite way to eat this salad though? Make a batch and eat it stuffed inside a whole wheat pita for lunch all week long.
Spaghetti alle Vongole With Pomodorini or spaghetti with clam sauce is a very traditional, simple dish found across Italy. I love adding sweet cherry tomatoes in with the clams, which adds a delicious sweetness. The tomatoes seem to bring out the fresh flavor of the clams and help to keep the pasta moist. Try to find small, fresh clams to use in this recipe, such as littleneck clams.
Impress your guests with this super simple dessert. You can try half-and-half here, but the full cream is perfectly rich and silky. I use small white coffee cups for presentation, but you can use ramekins, wine glasses or unmold onto a pretty plate.
