Ted Kennedy

Senator Ted Kennedy died today. I've been somewhat of a Kennedyphile over the years. I've read many of the family biographies. His accomplishments speak for themselves. I respect anyone who succeeds despite great personal loss and public embarrassments. In honor of his passing, I'm including the recipe for the Senator's favorite lobster salad.


6 ears of corn
4 lbs. lobster meat cooked and cut into bite size pieces
2 large tomatoes peeled and seeded
2 avocadoes peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons milk (or light cream)
1/2 cup fresh dill chopped
Salt and pepper


1) Cook the corn and then scrape off the kernels and set aside
2) Put the tomatoes, avocado and corn into a bowl, add the lobster meat and toss gently
3) In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and milk and mix until smooth
4) Sprinkle the lobster mixture with dill, salt and pepper then add the mayonnaise mixture and stir briefly so the sauce barely holds the rest of the ingredients together.
5) Cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
