Ina Garten’s 13 Best Summer Recipes of All Time
A resort in Maui? Yawn. Backpacking through Europe? Nah. Let’s face it: We want to spend our whole summer eating grilled corn salad with Ina Garten on her breezy veranda in the Hamptons. You might not have scored an invite to the Barefoot Contessa’s sprawling estate yet, but here are 13 recipes to recreate the magic at home. How easy was that?
Fancy enough for a Saturday soiree, easy enough for a Monday at home.
Tomato Crostini with Whipped Feta
We dare you to eat just one.
Fresh Corn Salad
Yep, we just found our new go-to summer side dish.
Tomato and Goat Cheese Tarts
Aww, cutest apps ever.
Blue Cheese Burgers
Hot tip: When in doubt, cover it with cheese.
Watermelon, Arugula and Feta Salad
If summer had an official salad, it would be this.
Zucchini and Goat Cheese Tart
Looks tricky, but it’s surprisingly easy to make.
Roasted Tomato Basil Soup
Transform your farmers’ market haul into this bowl of deliciousness.
Please. At Ina’s house, you don’t eat plain old broccoli.
Lobster and Corn Chowder
Serve it with a giant hunk of bread for dipping and pretend you’re in the Hamptons…with Ina…and Jeffrey.
Shrimp Scampi with Linguine
Fork, twirl, repeat.
They’re like little bites of sunshine. Ina, is there anything you can’t do?
