Summer fare should always be light and simple. Making use of fresh garden vegetables marinated with your favorite Italian or other oil-based dressing (about 30 minutes) and grilled until tender, compliments a juicy rib eye steak and makes for a quick meal after a long day on the job.
Make this when the garden--or the farmers' market--is overflowing with fresh greens. This is an ideal use for garden lettuce that has passed its prime. And don't skip the cream--even this small amount has a major impact on flavor and texture.
