Warm Smoked Salmon Niçoise Salad

Warm Smoked Salmon Niçoise Salad

0
This salmon Niçoise salad is a little less than traditional, but like the original it is a fantastically tasty and a terrific summer salad. Okay, I did retain a detail or two. There are boiled potatoes and green beans. And instead of tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs, I decided to use green asparagus. And a final detail. My Niçoise salad is made with warm smoked salmon instead of oil-packed tuna....

Spring Radish Salad with Orange, Mint & Pine Nuts

With the abundance of fresh local spring radishes picked at their height of freshness and flavor, I’ve been trying to think of other ways to use then rather than just have them play second fiddle as a mere garnish in a green salad. Why? Because I love these little root vegetables. Fresh and crunchy, they are a real treat. Especially in this spring radish salad where tasty sweet citrus...

Fennel Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Celery

My love affair with raw fennel is far from over. Perhaps it's a love of all licorice-like things. Anise – yes, love it. Fennel seeds – yep, them too. Ouzo – err, reminds me of my introduction to the Pink Palace on Corfu as I was 19. Fell in love with Greece back then, but I never developed a love affair with ouzo. Thinking of all things licorice...remember those black...
Spicy Thai Carrot and Zucchini Salad

Spicy Thai Carrot Zucchini Salad

0
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that is extremely versatile and whether eaten raw or cooked can be completely yum-worthy. This is a great example of that -- zucchini ribbons tossed in a Thai inspired, tangy and spicy dressing. For good taste and attempts to disguise another dreaded zucchini dish from my favorite Schwabe, I first switched out green for a golden yellow. Do you think he knows there...

Hier seht Ihr einen Spargelsalat mit Zitronen Tahin Dressing. Vielleicht finden manche, dass das eine komische Kombination ist.

Broccolini and Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Guys, there’s so much good going on here! I guess I could have called this broccolini and roasted chickpea salad something like "broccolini bowl", cause it's definitely bowl food. Here’s what it's got going on: tender blanched broccolini tossed in a lemon-tahini dressing topped with Asian-spiced chickpeas roasted in the oven until crispy, a little sweet red onion, juicy mini-roma tomatoes, fresh cilantro and crunchy slivers of toasted almond....

Shredded Cabbage Salad with Tahini-Lemon Dressing

0
Let’s talk about this shredded cabbage salad with tahini-lemon dressing recipe for a minute. Yes, cabbage salad. Or perhaps I should call it a "coleslaw" to make it sound more appealing. It's a shredded salad. One I often make using kale but sadly, since the season is over, I've traded out kale for a mix of cabbage. And I would say this is proof that something not so trendy,...

This recipe for asparagus salad with fennel also works well with green asparagus if you fancy this salad outside the asparagus season. “White gold” or “edible ivory” – considered a spring delicacy, white asparagus makes it way to produce markets and grocery stores only one season a year. During the German “Spargelsaison” or “Spargelzeit” (“asparagus season” or “asparagus time”), the season usually starts in late April and finishes in...
