Summertime Picnic Sandwich

 When summer fruits are at their sweetest, peaches make a worthy substitution for the strawberries in this recipe.

  • 8 lg. strawberries
  • 8 tbsp. Neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch watercress, long stems trimmed
  • 8 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
    Serves 4
  • Chop 4 of the strawberries and slice the remaining 4. In a large bowl, mash chopped strawberries with a fork. Add Neufchâtel, mint, zest, salt and pepper and mix until well combined.

    Spread strawberry mixture evenly between slices of bread then arrange cucumbers, sliced berries and watercress over half of the slices. Top with remaining slices to form sandwiches then halve each and serve. Enjoy!

    Italian Romance at Eos on Thurs., July 16

    Eos will host Annalisa Battuello, founder/owner of the Italian winery, Il Tenuta I Quaranta, straight from Piemonte, with a five course dinner created by Chef Wes Long to pair with I Quaranta’s fine wines.  A few words from Battuello herself:  “Life deserves to be lived well. Enjoyed and colored. With people around and new relationships being  built. Life is a place for interaction. It is a place for true emotion. It is a place for something bigger than individualistic selfishness. Tenuta  I Quaranta is my dedication to life.”    This very special evening  will be $65 per person. Reserve early!
