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.
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.
I might be a little obsessed with this pesto and this salad. And the two together. Mostly the two together. There’s something about potatoes smothered in pesto that’s all kinds of right. Plus potato salad has long been a favourite food of mine… I just don’t usually make it this green!
This citrus and hot smoked salmon salad is full of fresh herbs and drizzled with the yummiest soy and ginger dressing. It’s all zingy freshness and definitely breaks up the whole heavy winter dishes vibe I’ve been going down lately. My booty was definitely begging for a salad.
Yum yum yum! This salad is warm, and comforting and full of flavour. It’s also loaded with vegetables and totally winter appropriate. The crunchy toasted coconut, crispy bits of roast cauliflower and caramelised pumpkin are a killer combo. Especially with miso and sesame paste coating it all. Yes, yes, yes.
This salad is full of flavour and texture thanks to the creamy dressing, crunchy almonds, sweet pumpkin and fresh spinach. The perfect prep ahead work salad. Just don’t toss it all together until you’re ready to eat.
This is an easy and delicious salad that works just as well as a filling dinner as it does as an easy-to-batch-cook work lunch. The flavours and textures are great together plus the mixture of protein sources and complex carbs mean it’s super filling.
This is a very summery couscous salad made super delicious with… HALOUMI. Because cheese if life and haloumi is so golden and salty and delicious. It’s one of my favourite cheeses because of how it is transformed in heat. It also takes this salad from side dish to lunch by adding a little extra protein to satisfy.
