Each family has its own seasonally iconic dish. In my family, our iconic summer dish is tabouleh. It reminds me of picnics on the beaches of Bretagne and Center City backyard BBQ's. And, best of all, it is a versatile, easy-to-make, healthy recipe that is easily transportable from kitchen to picnic blanket. —gourmettenyc
