4 comfort recipes: pan-fried turkey, lamb tacos, salad with mango, plus pea and radish salad

(Continued)

               

Return the kale-onion-mushroom mixture to the saute pan, tossing to incorporate. Season with the salt and pepper, then stir in the Worcestershire sauce and butter and cook until the kale is warmed through. Cover and transfer to the oven.
               

Line a baking sheet with a few layers of paper towels.
               

Place the panko crumbs in a shallow baking dish. Stir in the salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Coat each cutlet with panko, gently pressing to make sure it sticks, placing the coated cutlets on the baking sheet as you work. Discard any leftover egg wash or panko.
               

Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch into a large, heavy skillet or Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers. Place a wire rack over the lined baking sheet.
               

Working in batches of 3 or 4 at a time, fry the breaded cutlets for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, until golden brown, then use tongs to turn them over and fry for 2 minutes on the second side. Transfer to the wire rack, then place the baking sheet in the oven. Repeat to cook the remaining cutlets.
               

Divide the warmed kale mixture among individual plates. Arrange two cutlets on each plate. Serve right away.

Pea, Mint and Radish Salad
               

6 servings
               

If you use fresh peas in this bright salad, first blanch them in boiling water for a minute.
               

You'll have a little bit of vinaigrette left over; it can be refrigerated for a week.
               

MAKE AHEAD: The salad can be made several hours in advance and refrigerated, but don't garnish with the mint and cheese until just before serving. From Amanda McClements of Salt & Sundry in D.C.'s Union Market.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.

  • Has the ipad lost its swag?

      The company reported this week that sales of its sleek, pricey tablet were down 19 percent from last quarter and 9 percent year-over-year. CEO Tim Cook tried to reassure investors that Apple's new partnership with IBM to sell its devices to IBM's corporate customers will help make iPads ubiquitous in the workplace. "This isn't something that worries us," he said of the iPad sales decline. But the numbers are disappointing no matter how you spin them.
