recipe

A simple swap is all it takes to reimagine panzanella. This Italian summer salad usually features cubes of day-old rustic bread and tomatoes, tossed with basil leaves and a simple vinaigrette. But slices of ripe, juicy peaches in place of, or in addition to, the tomatoes bring a different (but entirely welcome) sweetness to the mix.

These jellies are intended to be eaten within a week or two; if you make the full recipe, plan to give away a few jars as gifts. Use for basting meats, or serve atop tea breads.

recipe

Garlic bread, Spanish-style: Rub baguette slices with garlic cloves, brush with extra-virgin olive oil, and grill to a crisp, then rub with cut plum tomatoes -- that's the traditional version of these Catalan toasts. Here, they're given the special-occasion treatment with oven-dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, and other toppings, all inspired by the flavors of the region.This recipe originally appeared in Martha Stewart's Appetizers (Clarkson Potter).

This quick take on the Provencal pizza-like tart known as pissadaliere is topped by sauteed onions, slivered Nicoise olives, fresh thyme, and anchovies. Puff pastry makes a fast and easy alternative to traditional bread or pastry doughs when making it or other tarts: Once the sheets have thawed, roll them out and sprinkle with your choice of toppings, then pop in the oven and you're done.This recipe originally appeared in Martha Stewart's Appetizers (Clarkson Potter).

recipe

Is it a dressing or a dip? Who cares? Green goddess dressing, the beloved California creation, doubles as a dip for a summertime crudite platter. The creamy concoction is studded with chopped fresh herbs and scallions, and it pairs particularly well with the season's bounty -- here, baby carrots and yellow squash, tender peas and beans, and little tomatoes -- but let the greenmarket (or your own garden) be your guide.This recipe originally appeared in Martha Stewart's Appetizers (Clarkson Potter).
