From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, we’re celebrating the Fourth of July early with this delicious, festive quiche. Our eggy filling is made with red onion and purple (also called blue) potato—along with zucchini and fresh basil, for a summery touch. Dollops of white ricotta create fluffy creaminess on top. We’re rounding out this exciting meal with a lemon-dressed arugula and radish salad.
