I'm tired; have tomatoes, sweet corn, mozzarrela [moved from General Topics]
I've been covering for a co-worker for a month now, and am exhausted. I haven't the energy to go to the store and get additional ingredients, but I bought a few large organic heirloom tomatoes, some sweetcorn and green onions, and mozzarella at farmer's market yesterday and have some fresh basil from the garden. I also have a can of crab meat I need to use soon, but I don't have eggs for crabcakes. I also have lemons on hand, but that's about it for my fridge. What can I make with these ingredients that doesn't require a lot of effort?
This should be easy enough:
Make a basic sliced tomato/mozarella/basil/evoo salad with a little lemon juice and/or zest. Make a second salad with the crab, mayo, roasted corn, and the green onions - just a little S & P. Maybe a little tarragon or dill too. Serve with bib or Boston lettuce and some crusty bread.
This might be too late for you, but why not make a salad like tuna salad with the crabmeat and the onions, and stuff it in the tomatoes, then top with the mozzarella and stick it under the broiler for a minute. I don't know how basil would be with crab but if it appeals, add it too.
