Destination Dish: August Recipe of the Month!
Destination Hotels & Resorts has challenged each of their chefs across the country to take part in The Destination Dish. Each month Destination Hotels & Resorts will select one ingredient; each chef must create a recipe around the chosen ingredient and incorporate it into their respective restaurant's menu that month. The ingredient changes every month, so do the menu items!
August's ingredient is the perfect summer fruit: peaches! And, T. Cook's contribution? Our new grilled peach and ricotta salad:
Brush slices of fresh peaches and ricotta salata (aged, dried and pressed ricotta cheese) with olive oil and grill on medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until flesh is just charred.
For the dressing, whisk together a small spoonful of good-quality honey, apple cider vinegar, a drizzle of canola oil, another small spoonful of whole grain mustard, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste.
Toss fresh greens with dressing, grilled peaches and ricotta salata and some Marcona almonds.
