    Italian Family Dining: Recipes, Menus, and Memories of Meals with a Great American Food Family
    by Edward Giobbi and Eugenia Giobbi Bone, published by Rodale

    It's mealtime, and the family gathers around the table. There may be a dish of pasta to start, or a bowl of soup. To follow, perhaps some tuna sausage and roasted peppers, or chicken with mint. A salad? Well, maybe, if it's a big meal. Salad at this point in the meal is good for digestion. For dessert, a piece of fruit. If the occasion is special, then a granita or a torta. Each dish celebrates the bounty of the season. And each pause between these small courses -- indeed, the entire meal -- is punctuated with lively conversation. The result? Satisfaction. Contentment. And a very healthful meal. This is Italian Family Dining.

    Thirty years after the publication of his classic book, Italian Family Cooking, Edward Giobbi has joined his daughter Eugenia Giobbi Bone to share more recipes for the way ...

    Spinach Salad with Nectarine, Blueberries and Lime Balsamic Vinaigrette

    With nectarines available nearly all year long, you can enjoy this salad almost anytime. I actually like it best in the winter, when the tartness of imported nectarines seems to make it even more refreshing. Tossing fresh mint with the spinach adds an unexpected flavor.

    4 cups baby spinach (4 ounces)
    1/4 cup mint leaves
    Juice of 1/2 lime
    2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    1 teaspoon chopped shallot
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1 nectarine, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup fresh blueberries, or 1/4 cup dried

    1. Place the spinach in a large mixing bowl. Stack the mint leaves and cut them crosswise into thin strips. Toss the mint with the spinach.
    2. For the dressing, combine the lime juice, vinegar, shallot, and salt in a small ...
