Serves 6 to 8.

Note: This recipe must be prepared in advance. From Laurie Lin of Cocoa & Fig, at the Prior Lake Farmers Market. “Early summer is a perfect time to make this galette, essentially a free-form pie,” said Lin. “I like to keep a recipe or two of the dough in the freezer, so all I have to do is roll out the dough and chop my strawberries and rhubarb for an easy, no-fuss taste of summer.”

For dough:

• 1 c. flour, plus extra for rolling dough

• 1/4 c. yellow cornmeal

• 3/4 tsp. salt

• 2 tsp. sugar, plus extra for garnish

• 8 tbsp. (1 stick) butter, cold and cut into small pieces

• 2 to 4 tbsp. ice water

For filling:

• 1 1/3 c. cored and sliced strawberries

• 1 3/4 c. rhubarb, cut into 1/2-in. pieces

• 1/2 c. sugar

• 2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cornstarch

• 1/2 tsp. salt

• Juice from 1/2 lemon

• Beaten egg
