Here we are with the warmest week of the year! For somebody this is the most awaited week, because finally holidays arrive. Perhaps we would like to cook and it would be better to find easy and simple things to prepare. We would like to suggest a recipe “Cruditès with cold sauce” taken from the book of Antonia Polese.
