Chopped Ham Salad with Hard Boiled Eggs has "passé" written all over it, but after mixing up a batch from Canal House I'm beginning to wonder why it ever fell out of fashion. Hirsheimer and Hamilton's version forgoes sweet relish in favor of a tangy mayonnaise and mustard dressing that leaves the salad tasting somewhere in between deviled eggs and deviled ham.

Lately I've been cooking with corn like it's going out of style, or out of season, as the case may be. Corn salad, corn pasta, even sweet corn gelato but this corn soup with lobster and avocado from Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton's Canal House Cooking has to be my favorite corn recipe of the summer. Adding chunks of lobster and avocado is a surefire way to make anything even more delicious, but in this case, the corn soup is the highlight of the recipe.
