Summer Shrimp Salad with Grilled Peaches and Fresh Corn

Summer Shrimp Salad with Grilled Peaches and Fresh Corn

I don’t want to miss things before they’re already gone, but it’s kind of my specialty. I’ll be two bites into a cookie — already mourning it, or on a vacation, like I was last May with Kate and Sabrina, staring into turquoise water, sipping a piña colada, and at least a tinge of my blissed-out vacation high…
