Ladies Who Lunch

I'm having a good friend over for lunch. In the past I've made her a chilled crab salad as well as a croque monsieur. Any ideas would be appreciated. She's coming on Friday.

Grilled asparagus with over-easy eggs and homemade crostini with soft goat cheese and lemon zest. A lemon sorbet would be a great finish.

This is a Gulf Coast favorite. A "West Indies Salad" Which might be a repeat of your chilled crab salad.

Avoid the temptation to use a move flavorful oil like a olive oil. A light salad oil is all you need.

If you're leaning toward the southern approach: sweet iced tea with fresh mint, and tea sandwiches of (individually) shrimp salad, cucumber/dill, and pimiento cheese.

A no cook pasta sauce over capellini. Marinate chopped very good tomatoes with a bit of smashed chopped garlic, torn basil leaves, generous amount of olive oil, salt pepper for at least 30 minutes. Pour over just cooked angel hair pasta, add diced fresh mozzarella cheese and a bit of parmesan cheese and toss. Very seasonal and delicious.

I'm always a fan of lentils, greens, a fried or poached egg and crusty bread, but agree that a nicoise or similar salad meal is a great lunch idea too.
