Stuffed Zucchini Flowers

Zucchini Flowers two days in a row! It is not like we eat this all the time. Yes, tonight I made Fried Zucchini Flowers again but this time they were stuffed. I had the batter leftover from last night's dinner. I used a recipe for Bon Appetit for the stuffing. I only made enough for 4 flowers. I used about 3 tbsp Ricotta, one mint leaf that was chopped up, some lemon zest, salt, and pepper. I served them with a side of sauce. They were not bad but I do like plain fried flowers better.

Burgers and Potato Salad. The burgers were from Ferraro's. The Potato Salad was a recipe from the box that contains recipes I collected when we were first married.

Tonight we had Classic Potato Vinaigrette Salad. There was no notation of where the recipe was from. But I know why I saved it! Delicious!

Classice Potato Vinaigrette Salad (makes 3 cups)

1# new potatoes
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp oil oil
2 tbsp minced shallots
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tbsp chopped parsley

Boil potatoes in salted water, just until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain Cool slightly. Dice.
Whisk vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk in oil. Add shallots & warm potatoes. Cool.
Stir in celery and parsley.
