Spicy Thai beef salad. Beef. Lime. Chili. Mint. Cilantro. It all comes together in one big flavour bomb. Almost too much but it works. And it works well.
This quick Mexican slaw is perfect when you need something awesome to go with your star attraction but you don’t have a lot of time. Cabbage, onions, carrots, jalapeños and a slightly sweet and tangy dressing come together in no time flat. With tacos. With grilled meats. Or even a spicy rare tuna steak.
Warm corn bacon salad. It’s one of those recipes that almost aren’t worth posting. Nothing to it. Too easy to be taken seriously. But everyone raves. So here it is…
Kachumber is a great Indian salad waiting to be discovered. Tomatoes, cucumber, onions and the bright tastes of cilantro and mint kicked up with a little green chili. Like a Greek salad jacked up with Indian flavours. Perfect counterpoint to a curry or two.
I love a good creamy potato salad loaded with bits of egg and pickle. But it doesn’t always match the menu. It’s kind of a sledge hammer side. Strong. Assertive. In your face. Warm potato salad with bacon and coarse mustard is a more refined take on potato salad. Chill. Confident. A bit understated. But totally awesome.
Chickpea salad with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette is the perfect side dish for those summer dinners on the deck. Serve it with a nice rotisserie chicken and some tzatziki and a glass of chilled white wine. With anything grilled really. The perfect summer meal.
