Every Monday and Wednesday, we'll announce a new Wildcard winner: a recipe that may not have been entered in (or won) a contest, but a recipe that we've tested and loved.

Today: No need to travel to New England for its quintessential summer food.

New England Lobster Rolls

WHO: Sonali aka The Foodie Physician  is a culinary school grad and emergency medicine physician in New York City.

WHAT: A classic New England seafood shack lobster roll, made in your own kitchen.

HOW: Make a lemony, herby mayonnaise, then fold it into diced lobster and celery. Spoon it into lettuce-lined, buttery, toasty buns. Garnish with more mayo, if desired.

WHY WE LOVE IT: We love that Sonali tackles the quintessential New England summer food -- that, now, can be enjoyed far outside the northeast. The homemade mayo is a great touch -- but, in a pinch, good-quality store-bought mayo can be used in its place.
