For me, early summer is all about celebrating the outdoors: gardening, grilling and socializing on the deck into the long, warmer evenings. Some of my happiest childhood memories include family gatherings on Independence Day at my grandparents’ farm. They let my cousins and me set off fireworks—and we accidentally lit the field on fire at least once! I’m celebrating this year by making Red, White & Blue Summer Salad (page 82)—it’s safer.
