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.
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.
East. Fast. Delicious. Perfect for weeknight meals. Spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes and pecorino romano can be ready in less than 30 minutes. Or serve a smaller portion to start at a dinner party. Like they do in Italy. Primi and secondi. It’s a nice way to eat.
Caesar salad with roasted garlic croutons is serious business. This is not your run-of-the-mill toss it on the table salad. This is an undertaking. A commitment. But the results speak for themselves.
Sometimes light, clean tastes are best. Mediterranean quinoa salad is a fresh and summery dish that’s loaded with flavour. It’s Peru meets Greece in a bowl. And it’s super easy to make. It’s great with grilled chicken or lamb. If you’re into making board sauces when you grill the mix of flavours is fantastic. Tastes like summer to me.
Sag aloo. Spinach and potato curry. Simple. Vegan. Spinach, potatoes and Indian spices. Delicious. It makes a great vegetable accompaniment to any Indian dinner.
