It is definitely spring, with summer just around the corner. It has been sunny in my neck of the woods, although not necessarily warm. It has been enough to make me feel like putting away the soup recipes and bringing out the summer salad recipes. The other day, I volunteered to take dinner to a neighbor, an elderly couple who had been ill for some time. I opted for chicken salad, made with a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store deli. I was also thrilled to find blackberries on sale, and I paired them with lemon-flavored whipped cream. It was a perfect summer meal, even if it’s barely April.
