Endive & Carrot Salad with Hazelnuts & Cranberries

Well, what is there to say about this? Other than that it’s lovely to have a crisp green salad in the middle of winter, which can definitely be a bit salad deficient if you aren’t careful. I mean, if I’m not careful. You know. Mr. Ferdzy liked this better than most things I make with Belgian endive (not a fave …

Spring Roll Salad with Chicken

It seems I’ve gotten a bit out of the habit of making salads, so I am trying to do more of them this winter, which is never the easiest time for salads but it can be done. It helps that I’ve been really quite impressed with the greenhouse lettuce I’ve been getting this winter. There is a lot more variety …

Candied Ginger & Coconut Beets

This is a lovely, simple dish, if a little on the rich side. The final preparation to serve the dish is minimal; it’s cooking the beets in the first place that takes the time. It can be done in advance though. I have visions of cutting the beets with a tiny heart-shaped cookie cutter and serving this at Valentine’s day, …

Sweet Potato, Lentil, & Feta Salad

I really hate making other peoples’ recipes. Sure I will take inspiration from things I see out there, but then I want to get my own mitts all over it, and tweak it this way and that way, and make it mine. Of course I have changed this but that has more with my inability to follow the bloody directions …

Carrot, Apple, & Belgian Endive Salad

There are some strong flavours in this elaborated version of the good old Waldorf salad. I lost the celery (it is long over, alas) and replaced it with carrot and Belgian endive. With the cranberries and nuts these make for a pretty intense interplay between sweet and bitter elements. I found I needed to add more salt than I would …

Cucumber, Tomato and Avocado Salad

When I’m grilling (lemon pepper) salmon for dinner, this has been my go to salad.  While salmon is grilling, I whip up this salad and dinner can be on the table in 15 minutes.  To top it off, it’s healthy! I’ve made this salad several times with different tomatoes I’ve gotten at the farmers market.  The fresh garden tomatoes are …

Grilled Mushroom Caesar Salad

This is a recipe I developed over two years ago that never saw the light of day. With BBQ season now upon us I thought would dust it off. There is perhaps nothing I love more that a marinated, grilled oyster mushroom. And certainly everyone will think you’re a fun guy when you make this traditional side salad as the main …
