Salads, Sides and Store Cupboard Essentials!
This category is a bit of a catch all, you will find everything from sides, to salads and pickles to sauces. Given that we grow a huge amount of our own produce we try and set it aside and use it throughout the barren months of winter and early spring. I try to not produce too many preserving recipes in any single year as I reckon I could post a new one every week from May through to October!
If adventures in North African/Persian food defined my winter my summer has been all about pickles and salads and this pickled peach salad with ham and cheese follows on from the likes of my Panzanella and Thai Beef Salad in this seasons culinary ramblings.
I love this time of year and I love this recipe, this Smoked Mackerel Salad with Apple and Bacon is nothing more than a few good things that really work well together that have been given a little care and attention to make them sing.
Here I go again playing around with classical dishes which I am sure will horrify some. Of course a classic Caprese salad is a wonderful thing the cream milky mozzarella cheese with sweet ripe tomatoes and almost metallic basil is a match made in [...]
As a Brit I am almost obligated to point out that a Panzanella Salad is the second best way to use up older 'stale' bread, naturally the best way is of course bread and butter pudding... But you are pretty hard pushed to enjoy a bread and butter pudding on a summers day on a picnic, a panzanella salad on the other hand is a completely different matter, it is perfect for a picnic.
I have no idea if this harissa salmon dish is a salad or not, but given that I am not much one for labels who cares, one thing it most certainly is though, is a delightfully light yet filling summer dish rocking the spicy aromatic flavours of harissa and rosewater mixed with orange and fennel.
