Mosiac Tea Sandwiches

Amy Pottinger offers not one but two options for garnishing her toast. Opt for a smoked salmon topping with cucumber and radishes, or go the meat-and-cheese route with cured ham and asparagus served atop a goat cheese-mascarpone mixture.

Lavender Mascarpone Sweet Fruit Tea Sandwich

The secret to Addie Gundry's quick-fix tea sandwich is lavender honey, which she uses in two ways — in the mascarpone base and as a drizzle over the finished dish — to offer a subtle floral flavor.

Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak with Poblano Crema and Pomegranate Pico

A simple marinade of hot sauce, fresh orange juice and brown sugar imparts bold flavor into the beef, which Amy Pottinger rounds out with a mix of cool, fresh toppings: a pomegranate-pineapple salsa laced with jalapeno, a smear of pobalo-cilantro crema and simply dressed arugula.
