When I started this blog, Chef Chuck from Chef Chuck’s Cucina was one of the first readers to find Ciao Amalfi and introduce himself. With family heritage going back to one of the most prominent and influential families in Amalfi, Scala and Ravello during the Middle Ages, Chuck visits the Amalfi Coast just as often as he can. What an amazing experience to be able to visit the churches in this area and see your family crest! I look forward to meeting Chef Chuck one day when he returns to explore his family heritage along the Amalfi Coast.
In the meantime, I enjoy his blog Chef Chuck’s Cucina where his motto is: “Bringing families and friends together around the dinner table to share old and new Italian recipes.” His tantalizing recipes often send me scampering to the kitchen or to the market fresh with lunch or dinner plans. Since the weather is hot hot hot here on the Amalfi Coast, I have fresh summer salads on my mind. Here are a few of my favorite Chef Chuck salads that I know I will make again and again this summer:
