Broccoli Tabbouleh with Toasted Nuts

0
Broccoli Tabbouleh. Say what? Yes, in this variation, the classic Middle Eastern salad has been upgraded with oh-so nourishing broccoli. And it’s delicious. Some aspects are the same, like herbs, lemon and bulgur. But in this modern take, tomatoes are replaced by pomegranate seeds, and toasted nuts and seeds added for an umami boost. Did you know that tree nuts like walnuts and almonds are a great way to...

Asian-Style Kale Salad with Brown Rice and Smoked Tofu

This Asian-style kale salad recipe is actually more about one of my favorite dressings that I adore with kale. I have so many different versions of this recipe 'cause it's actually a winter staple that we eat in some variation once or twice a week for the entire Tuscan Lacinto kale season. Which sadly is way too short! So about the dressing... it's all about garlic and ginger together...

Belgian Endive Pink Grapefruit Salad with Joghurt Dressing

In winter and early spring, grapefruits are plentiful and can be a refreshing addition to any salad. Sweet-tart pink grapefruit transforms slightly bitter endive into a delicate, well-rounded, and delicious Belgian endive pink grapefruit salad. I love Belgian endive (a.k.a escarole or witloof chicory) raw, for it’s crunchy, faint bitter taste that is at the same time tangy and sophisticated. Really, it varies depending on how it is prepared...

In the late seventeenth, New York was flooded with Dutch settlers and with them, they brought their recipe for chilled cabbage salad, which today is a mixture of the shredded vegetables with mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and other seasonings. Eventually, both words were anglicized into “coleslaw”. Though, the...
