Thai-Inspired Hydrating Cucumber Salad with Roasted Spiced Chickpeas

My mom, sister, and I had a fantastic time in San Francisco soaking up each other’s company and plenty of glorious California sunshine. My skin has gone from ghostly white to slightly not ghostly white with a hint of funky sandal tan lines. Success. After the conference in Portland, my sleep-deprived self came down with a bad cold the day before I traveled to SF, so I was a sniffling and sneezing mess during most of the second trip. Luckily, my loving travel companions, the sunny blue skies, and plenty of food & wine helped me heal. I must say, it’s been a shock to my system to be back to my normal work routine.

It was april then, and me and frank were just about to move. while the move was just down the street and around the corner, it was more of a headache than we thought. we wrongly assumed that since the move was short we could totally rent a uhaul and move ourselves - dur! I waited until the day before we moved to pack up the kitchen because i was testing and shooting recipes for the cookbook . plus, we were sandwiched between the new tenant moving into our old place, and the old tenant moving out of our new apartment, so we kind of made a mad dash of it piling everything into the uhaul and our car at the last minute. i was that crazy lady in the VW convertible doing laps around the block with plants and chairs, and boxes of cookbooks hanging out of the roof, while people looked on thinking i was nutso. anyway, it's been a blast so far having a backyard(!!!)

Basil Goat Cheese Pasta Salad. - Half Baked Harvest

That said, I have a handful of recipes that I do fall back on when family parties come up or we have people coming in to visit OR on the rare occasion when I just need a quick dinner and there’s nothing already made in the fridge. Pasta salad is one of those recipes. Sarah B's Balinese Gado Gado - My New Roots. First of all, hello you.

To this day, it's still one of my great “kitchen sink” salads: What goes into it or how I dress it depends what I find left over from service the night before in the salad station, or what I find in my fridge at home when I don’t feel like shopping or cooking much. You want to combine some crisp blanched and/or raw vegetables with something briny and bright, like bottarga (salted, cured fish roe), or crunchy like tiny croutons or toasted nuts, and you want an aggressive, full-flavored dressing like this yogurt-based one.

The idea is to have a combination of fresh vegetables that are somewhat similar in flavor and texture. A good way to choose the group is to think about what’s in season at the moment. Serves 4.
