Chicken with Cornmeal-Herb-Crust and Summer salad

Rachael of pizzarossa was our August 2012 Daring Cook hostess and she challenged us to broaden our knowledge of cornmeal! Rachael provided us with some amazing recipes and encouraged us to hunt down other cornmeal recipes that we’d never tried before – opening our eyes to literally 100s of cuisines and 1000s of new-to-us recipes! I chose to make a Chicken with Cornmeal-Herb-Crust and Summer Salad.

Green asparagus, broad beans and rocket salad

I went to the farmers' market this morning and saw fresh broad beans for the first time this year. When I came home I wondered what to do with them, so I asked the British gardener and cook Sarah Raven for advice by looking broad beans up in her "Garden Cookbook". I made her green asparagus, broad bean and rocket salad. She also adds fresh peas. I loved the firm green asparagus stalks with the soft broad beans and the peppery rocket leaves.
