That title pretty much sums up this super simple salad entirely. But it also probably has you scratching your head going, but why miso and tomatoes? So hear me out.
The flavours and textures in this potato salad make it such a winner and the perfect thing to bring to a picnic or have as a side with any summer dinner. That salmon recipe from yesterday would be great with this! As there’s no mayo it’s fresh and light and the crisp radishes and sweet peas really get to shine through.
It’s stone fruit season and I’m pretty excited about it. Apricots have always been one of my favourite fruits and when they’re good they’re so good. I’ve always known that dried apricots and cheese were good together on a cheese board and I’ve recently discovered that sweet grilled apricots are amazing with salty goats cheese and thyme. it’s actually a dream combination.
This salad tastes like summer on a plate. The smell of the ripe mangoes with the tangy peanut dressing is actually intoxicating. Mango, chili, avocado and prawn is such a great refreshing and summery combination, the sweetness of the mango balances the nutty soy laced dressing and compliments the prawns perfectly. Get ready to fall in love with your dinner…
I’m feeling indecisive. I knew all the flavours i wanted to eat but I couldn’t decided whether i wanted to have a pretty salmon with sauce and salad thing or if a quinoa bowl was more my vibe. So I made this dish both ways to see what was best. Turns out both are best, depending on level of hunger/patience for plating. This means that you’re getting a double whammy today. 1 recipe, 2 incarnations. Lucky you.
This salad is salty and sweet, crunchy and soft, filling but light. Basically all the things. It’s the perfect thing to serve with steamed or baked fish or even some grilled chicken. Alternatively soft boil a couple of eggs and keep it vegetarian.
If you’ve never roasted a radish you have to try this recipe. It changes their texture and mellows out the flavour a little and they’re so good. Especially with the creamy avocado and the fresh and simple dressing. This salad was made for consuming on warm evenings or afternoons or just scattered over some crunchy sourdough.
This is a bowl of goodness, just look a all the colours and textures you can see – so perfect! I made it with golden beetroot because I could get my hands on them but any beetroot would work.
Is that title too long? I mean I could have listed every ingredient and made it even longer. This is me showing restraint. I’m clearly great at it! This salad is a trans seasonal dream, just like our current Melbourne weather. it’s got some beautiful late winter vegetables mixed with spring goodness and all tied together with that golden haloumi.
That whole gut makeover month really reignited a love of blue cheese for me. And wholesome, hearty salads like this one. Golden chicken breast? Yes please! With sticky sweet potato and all the bitter leaves… yum! All finished with creamy blue cheese that melts onto the warm chicken and vegetables. Now we’re really talking.
