Summer Lobster Salad with Tarragon-Lemonade Spritzer Recipe

Servings: 4

The tarragon-lemonade spritzer is an interesting non-alcoholic beverage that complements the flavors of the lobster salad. The herbs in the lemonade can be changed to match whatever dish you want to serve it with.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs. freshly cooked lobster claw and tail meat, diced into large pieces and chilled
  • 1 lb. small yellow creamer potatoes 1/2 cup scallions, sliced thin 1 lb. cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels (cut from 2 large ears of corn) 6 fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons)
  • 2 Tbsp. tarragon leaves (plus 4 small sprigs for garnish)
  • 3/4-1 cup superfine sugar, or to taste
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sparkling water

Preparation:

  1. Bring large pot of salted water to boil and add potatoes.
  2. Cook potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork and drain in a colander.
  3. When cool enough to handle, slice potatoes into 1/4" thick rounds and lay onto individual plates.
  4. Place lobster, scallions, tomatoes, cucumber, radish, and corn in a medium bowl and toss with lime juice, olive oil, basil leaves, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Evenly distribute the lobster salad over the potatoes.
  6. To make lemonade, place the sugar and tarragon leaves into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the leaves are crushed to small bits and incorporated well with the sugar.
  7. In a large pitcher, combine the infused sugar with the lemon juice and waters and stir well to dissolve sugar.
  8. Serve lemonade over ice and garnish glasses with a sprig of tarragon.
