Georgia Magazine - July 2017 - 36B

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to
taste
8 slices bacon, fried crisp, crumbled
1 cup buttered croutons*
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives or
parsley

Peel tomatoes either with a vegetable peeler or by scraping them with
the edge of the knife. Core them and
cut into 1/2-inch dice. Place diced tomatoes in a salad bowl. Add onions.
Cut 4 of the lettuce leaves into bitesized pieces. Add lettuce to the tomatoes and onions.
Add mayonnaise to the bowl,
along with a generous pinch or so
of salt and a few liberal grindings of
pepper. Toss until everything is evenly coated. Taste and adjust the seasoning, keeping in mind that bacon
will add salty flavor.
Line 4 individual salad plates
with the remaining lettuce leaves.
Add croutons and bacon to the salad, give it one last toss and divide it
among the prepared plates. Sprinkle
with chives or parsley and serve immediately.
*To make buttered croutons, place
a rack in the upper third of the oven
and preheat it to 300 degrees. Put 2
tablespoons butter in a rimmed baking sheet and put it in the oven until

the butter is just melted. Add 2 cups
stale bread, which has been cut into
1-inch dice, and toss until it's evenly
coated with the butter. Bake, stirring
occasionally, until the croutons are
golden-brown and crisp. Serves 4.
When the electric icebox with its
small freezer chamber became commonplace in American kitchens during the 1920s, all sorts of chilled and
frozen concoctions entered our culinary repertoire. This recipe is based
on one such concoction from Henrietta Stanley Dull, who included it in
her 1928 classic, "Southern Cooking."

Frozen Tomato Salad, or Tomato
Sherbet in Avocados
2 cups tomato puree*
1/4 cup grated onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery, including a
few leaves
2 cloves garlic, crushed, peeled, finely
minced
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil, plus
6 whole sprigs for garnish
1 small cucumber, peeled, chopped fine
2 lemons, cut in half
Salt and cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup herb mayonnaise*
3 ripe avocados

In a large mixing bowl, mix
together the tomato puree, onion,
celery, garlic, basil, cucumber and
the juice of 1 lemon. Season with a
healthy pinch or so of salt, a pinch
of cayenne to taste and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in herb mayonnaise*
(mayonnaise flavored with chopped
fresh parsley, rosemary and basil),
and beat until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours
or overnight.
Freeze the chilled sherbet mixture in an ice-cream freezer, following the manufacturer's directions for
your freezer, or pour the mixture
into a shallow pan, cover with plastic
wrap and put it in the freezer. When
the mixture is frozen solid, after
about 4 hours, break it up and put it
in the bowl of a food processor fitted
with a steel blade. Whirl it until it is
fluffy, but don't over process it and
let it get slushy. Pour it back into the
freezing container and freeze until
solid, about 1 more hour.
Chill individual serving plates for
at least 30 minutes before you plan
to serve the sherbet. Just before serving, split each avocado lengthwise
and remove the pit. You can peel
the avocados, if desired. Slice off a

slices on both sides with the chipotle
oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon
salt. Grill watermelon until charred

board. When cool enough to handle,
remove the rind, seed if necessary,
and coarsely chop the flesh.

watermelon flesh, tomato, cucumber,
cilantro, shallot, serrano and the remaining 3 teaspoons olive oil. Pulse
