Aubrey fires up the grill

The new owners at Aubrey’s Sandwich Chef at 663 Old Liverpool Road – Jill and Gary Vincitore – look forward to a summer full of grilled sausages and salt potatoes. I stopped by the popular luncheon spot a few days ago and gobbled up a sweet and creamy chicken salad sub complemented by a cup of chicken and rice.

Now that the sun is shining, the Vincitores are firing up the outdoor grill where they’ll barbecue chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers and sausage served with peppers and onions. The chicken dinner’s a real deal at $7, as it includes a choice of boiled potatoes, mac or potato salad plus a can of soda.

Named after their daughter, Aubrey – who’s often on hand gracing the shop with her loveliness – the Sandwich Chef is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Customers can dine in, take out or get delivery; 935-2050.

Junior’s savory salad

Speaking of good eats, Nichols Supermarket assistant manager Mike Hennigan Jr. has been spending more time than usual in the store’s deli section. Earlier this month he created a new side-dish dubbed Junior’s Summer Bean Salad.

Mike’s creative concoction combines chick peas, kidney beans, pinto beans, black-eyed peas, and black beans along with chopped peppers, onions, tomatoes, dashes of feta, mozzarella and cheddar cheese and a dab of fresh Italian dressing made with tangy balsamic vinegar.

The end result is a savory salad perfect as a side dish to charcoal-grilled meats and seafood.

“The secret is the way the beans soak up the dressing,” Mike said.

He’s right. You hardly notice the dressing when you take a bite, but the beans are luscious – meaty and marinated – the accompanying veggies crisp and crunch and the bots of cheese soft and creamy. A little yin, a little yang and plenty of taste, all for $2.99 a half-pound.

Sports photos at LPL

My Eagle Newspapers colleague, photographer Herm Card, will show a variety of his sports images in a exhibition titled “A View from the Sidelines” to be displayed in the lobby at Liverpool Public Library beginning June 1.

Card is retired from two professions – teaching and umpiring.
