June always arrives with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, zucchini, apricots and watermelons in the basket. The month of the beginning of summer is also in which we have at our disposal a splash of vegetables and seasonal fruit. Faced with such a festival, we can do nothing but offer you our weekly menu well loaded with tasty recipes and with food on its optimal date of consumption.

Not everything is ensaimadas and sobrasadas in Mallorca: when the heat comes, in the Balearic Islands they are given to the salad as if there were no tomorrow. But not just any one, no: trempó.

SECOND: MEXICAN STYLE BEEF TARTARE
Chile instead of mustard, cucumber and red onion marinated in lime, tortilla chips to accompany and a little chopped cilantro: taking a tartar on a trip to Mexico is easier – and cheaper – than buying a ticket to Tulum.
DESSERT: SOBAOS, STRAWBERRIES AND CONDENSED MILK CAKE
This cake unites three gastronomic wonders: orange juice, strawberries with condensed milk and that European peak of Cantabrian confectionery that are the sobaos pasiegos.

FIRST: COLD WATERMELON AND BEETROOT SOUP
One grows on land, the other below; One is summer, the other winter -although we can find it cooked all year round-, and both are allied to become a refreshing soup full of flavor.
SECOND: THE 'MAC & CHEESE' OF FRIENDS
If you, too, have dreamed of sharing a Thanksgiving meal with the characters from the Friends series, you're in luck: today we teach you how to prepare Monica's macaroni and cheese.

DESSERT: SEASONAL FRUIT: APRICOT
It is a relative of peach and plum, has very few calories, and a good amount of fiber that makes it a rather satiating fruit.

FIRST: CRUSHED CUCUMBER SALAD
A refreshing Chinese salad with a technique that brings out the best in this vegetable, and a powerful garlic, cilantro and sesame dressing easy to prepare. Quick and tasty.

SECOND: PEAS WITH PAN-SEARED TOMATO AND MOLLET EGG
This dish is more helpful than having MacGyver and Manny Handyman as second cousins. Fresh peas are combined with pear tomatoes and with the flavor provided by mollet eggs.
DESSERT: SESAME AND HONEY ICE CREAM
From five ingredients, but expandable to infinity and beyond, you can prepare this creamy ice cream: it will take you just 15 minutes if you have a good wrist set.

FIRST: APRICOT, CHEESE AND LETTUCE SALAD
From the union of seasonal fruits and vegetables can only come a starter as rich and fresh as that of this recipe. And if they are also accompanied by mozzarella or burrata, better than better.
SECOND: WHITE PICKLED SARDINES WITHOUT FRITANGA
If you like pickled sardines but are too lazy to leave the kitchen smelling like fritanga, try this version in which the fish is baked instead of passing through oil: it is very simple and it is just as good.

DESSERT: SEASONAL FRUIT: WATERMELON
It should have a yellowish stain in the area that has been in contact with the earth, and when tapping it with your fingers it should "feel hollow".

FIRST: FRIED ANCHOVIES
Pescaíto a la andaluza is a godsend, but there are other ways to fry anchovies and get delicious results. The last one we have found in a restaurant as French as Japanese.
SECOND: STUFFED SWEET PEPPERS
Small peppers, water to blanch them and a simple but tasty filling: that's all you need for this appetizer, which adapts a classic dish to the temperatures of these dates.

DESSERT: EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL AND CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES
These truffles from the Rasoterra restaurant change the softness of milk derivatives for the rotundity of Arbequina olive oil.

MAIN COURSE: COURGINI PARMIGIANA
The traditional version of this Italian dish has eggplant, but it can also be prepared with zucchini. And choose whether to fry it or grill it, or put cheeses of more or less intense flavor.

DESSERT: SEASONAL FRUIT: CHERRY
Cherries are in season and at El Comidista we celebrate by getting warm to them. But if you click on the link you will see several recipes in case you get bored of eating them alone.

MAIN COURSE: MARINATED CHICKEN WITH SPICES AND YOGURT
Yogurt tenderizes the meat of the chicken and also facilitates that the flavor and aroma of the spices merge in it: if Harold McGee says it, you have to try it as soon as possible.
DESSERT: PEACHES SAUTÉED WITH MASCARPONE CREAM
The heat and the stoves do not get along too well, but the little time you lose in them to sauté these spicy peaches will be very well used. We guarantee it.

The drink of the weekend
Thanks to the beer's bubbles, bitterness, and lower density, bloody brew is lighter and more refreshing than its famous relative.
