FINE CHINESE DINING
71 wonderful adventure in fine dining" – Danny Raskin
ake a break from meat with
a meal of soup, sandwiches
and an easy slaw. On the
menu this week is just that.
First there's soup — simple and
healthy and vegetarian.
It's full of vegetables
and protein from beans.
It's my version of min-
estrone, an Italian soup
that is bright and brothy
with just a few spoon-
fuls of pasta, which add
contrasting texture. This
soup is my go-to version
for quick satisfaction (it's
much lighter and simpler
than my more compli-
cated, heartier winter
vegetable soup recipes).
Soup goes with sandwiches, and
this recipe for a smoked salmon pani-
ni with avocado is just right, toasted
2 Tbsp. olive oil

Of course, once you get in the habit
of preparing this grownup, more
elaborate version of grilled cheese,
you'll want a panini as often
as possible — with a variety
of fillings and every type
of bread you can think of
(imagine a bagel, lox and
cream cheese panini —
Add a slaw — this one
with carrots instead of cab-
bage as a base and tinged
ever so lightly with curry.
Delicious and colorful.
Grilling season is fast
approaching so before we
break out the ribs and steaks, keep
it simple and fresh with a meal that's
really quite easy to live with and just a
little different from the ordinary.
