We bought some pre-made ribs at the grocery store. Rather than go with fatty salads from the deli, I bought some small new potatoes and zucchini. After slicing the zucchini and salting it to draw out some of the liquid, I put the potatoes on to steam.
When the potatoes were done I cut them up right away and dressed them with olive oil, salt, and celery seed so the potatoes would soak in the flavor. I also added onions and celery. The potato salad would be served warm or room temperature.
After sautéing onions, mushrooms, and garlic I added the zucchini to cook. Some thyme from the backyard finished the dish.
Finally John heated the ribs in the microwave and we had a “real” dinner.
