By early May it had already hit 90°F in Charlotte and I began to panic: If this is spring in my new city, what the heck is summer going to be like? Turns out it’s just as hot and even more humid — welcome to the South! So while I usually lighten up my meals for just a few sticky months back home in the Northeast, I’ve been doing it for months already down here.
I love the easy, breezy vibes of summer eating, but no-cook or barely-cook meals do eventually get a bit tiresome. Leave it to a stroll down the aisles at Trader Joe’s to cure my fatigue. I discovered the one item that instantly made me excited about summer meals again: their hot smoked salmon.
