Last week I extolled the virtues of tomatonaise, a condiment I realize I didn't make up but which I slather on everything as soon as the summer tomatoes are ripe. So like...just this past weekend. I got a tip from one of my favorite food insiders in the world on how to liven up strawberries and tomatoes at the same time, and what that means for your lunch.
Tahini sauce and tomato relish top off veggie dish

With all the amazing meat fresh off the grill during Food Republic's Grilling Month, you may need a veggie or two in there to balance it all out. Cooking Light magazine's new cookbook, Pick Fresh, is a collection of simple preparations of seasonal vegetables. Enjoy seasonal eggplant stuffed with hearty falafel for a steak of a veggie dish you'll make over and over again.
I tried to think of how the elements of some of my favorite dishes might translate into tube steak form. Jambalaya is a Cajun dish that's really pretty simple: sauteed holy trinity (peppers, onions and celery), andouille sausage and/or other meat and Cajun spices cooked with rice. That sounded to me like a Jambalaya dog just waiting to happen.
