It’s finally May, and long, lazy summer days are enticingly close. We’re excited to take advantage of seasonal produce and get around to finally firing up the grill again. From a simple but colorful radish salad to a well-seasoned hamburger to fruity breakfast treats, here are the dishes we can’t wait to cook this month.
Japanese Hamburger Steak
At Ethel’s Grill on Oahu, Hawaii, juicy pork-and-beef patties are served over salty-sweet ponzu sauce and crisp cabbage, and topped with grated daikon and spicy sprouts.
Bacon and Ramp Vinaigrette
Grilled ramps and bacon add a smoky flavor to this bright, oniony vinaigrette that’s wonderful drizzled over salads, swirled into soups, or spooned atop grilled meats.
Grilled Fava Beans
Young, tender fava beans work best for this preparation; you can pop them right out of the grilled pods and eat them without having to peel them first. See the recipe for Grilled Fava Beans »
