    Clam Stew

    2 reviews

    Every summer my family digs clams on the shores of Block Island, Rhode Island. This dish highlights the fresh sweet and salty flavor of the clams, and the chorizo adds a little kick. Fresh Swiss chard greens from our garden, corn and cannellini beans round out the flavor profile. The best part, though, is dipping bread into the delicious broth! This is quick and easy to put together and is a perfect appetizer or dinner on a summer night! —Pamela Gelsomini, Wrentham, Massachusetts
