     We're having a side salad, with the addition of beans, as our vegetable... Easy summer cooking.  This will use the rest of the Creamy Dressing From Saturday.  If you can't get turkey cutlets, use sliced turkey tenderloin or chicken breasts.

Total time: 25 minutes
    We don't eat orange marmalade on toast... But I love it for making marinades.  (And Lemon and Grapefruit, as well.)  It adds a caramel-like sweetness when cooked on the barbecue.  If you don't have any sherry in the pantry you can use white or rosé wine or 1tbs more sherry vinegar.

Grilled Potatoes and Onions

Total time: 35 minutes  
  Sweet or red onions add a wonderful flavor to simple grilled potatoes.  With the mustard and vinegar this is almost a hot salad... and perfect with simple grilled meats.

Lettuce, Walnut, and White Bean Salad

Total time: 10 minutes  
   A small side salad to round out the meal.  You can add bits of anything you have on hand: tomato, pepper, onion.  Walnuts are such a good source of Omega-3 that I like to use them often.
