Add Recipe Note

This quick, weeknight menu has all the hallmarks of lazy, easy Chesapeake summer: crab, corn, peaches, tomatoes, and a decadent (but no-churn) ice cream. Though most of the menu comes together in 40 minutes, the ice cream does need time to harden in the freezer. No time for that? Simply swirl raspberry jam into slightly softened lemon ice cream.
