This salad is not a southern dish, but I want to share this recipe anyway. I make quite a lot of dinner salads during the summer. I was introduced to this salad back in the early 1970s at the original Brown Derby Restaurant on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles, California.

I even imagined Lucy Ricardo (I Love Lucy) peeking over the booth where William Holden was having lunch.

I prefer most of the ingredients sliced instead of everything chopped, like most Cobb Salads and this make a better presentation.
You can easily double the recipe to make four servings.

​Tiramisù roughly translated means "pick me up" or "lift me up". It is a traditional dessert from Italy made with espresso, mascarpone cheese, whipped cream, Savoiardi (ladyfingers), and a custard called zabaglione. 

Every Italian mamma has her own recipe. I was fortunate enough to enjoy one made by my friend Giuseppina Cappiello in Positano.

Summer mornings break with so many beautiful sunrises.

This time of year, we enjoy grilling and eating outside on our back porch deck.  

Entertaining friends, family and celebrating birthdays make evening dinners extra special.
