Kale Market Salad Recipe

Kale Market Salad Recipe
There's a small restaurant in our neighborhood known for great pizza. And yes, the pizza is on point. But, really, it's their salads I crave - substantial, always changing, made from whatever looks great at the market. I'd tell you the name of the place, but scoring a table is already enough of a wait. It's Ragazza. I ordered a ringer of a salad the other night, and have been making a version at home in the days since - kale, farro, lots of avocado, carrots and fennel tossed with a creamy green garlic dressing. To prep the fennel and carrots, it's worth using a mandolin if you have one. It has been a bit wild around here and this sort of thing is nice to be able to throw together on somewhat of a whim. Thank you to everyone who stopped by QUITOKEETO yesterday. Lacinato kale is my variety of choice here. Make the dressing by using a hand blender or food processor to puree the green garlic, salt, lemon juice, olive oil, avocado, honey, and pepper until smooth. Serves 2-4. Print Recipe

black bean pumpkin soup I know this sounds like the tiniest of triumphs in a world of people who have respectable accomplishments to be proud of, but nonetheless, it brings me great pleasure to announce that I have found a pumpkin soup that meets my approval. Yes, I know, who talks about pumpkin soup in November? It seems like strictly an October affair. Pumpkins crowd the markets, and the people gather round with an evil glint in their eyes, eager to carve them up and roast their innards, mwa-ha-ha. You can barely turn your head without finding another half dozen pumpkin recipes, and oh, I know, I’ve spread my share around. Alex and I bought three smallish pumpkins to carve this year, but the weeks leading up to Halloween were chaotic and we never got to them.

This is a great recipe to practice knife skills and end up with a delicious, refreshing salad as a reward. An Ideal Lunch Salad Recipe I took this shot at 7:05 the other morning, just before walking out the door to pack a small mountain of boxes related to our last round of QUITOKEETO. It takes quite a lot to get each package bundled safely and sent on its way, and a proper lunch break on packing days is something I look forward to. We clear the long table, throw down a few sheets of butcher paper, and put out a spread.

Moroccan Mint Roasted Vegetables Recipe I was on the first flight of the day from Paris to Marrakesh. A full airplane heading south-west, three hours from tarmac to tarmac. Now, I'm not sure if it's just this time of year, but when you look out the window on final approach to Aéroport Marrakech Ménara, you're smacked with pink. The boxy buildings, the desert, the soft winter sunlight filtering through the dusty landscape - it all takes it's cue from a salmon shades of earthy pink. And you're greeted with thousand subtle variations of it. This was my first impression of Marrakesh, and it stayed with me throughout the week I was there.

Sturdy green salad with lemon yogurt dressing Well dear friends, the distillery, which after a flurry of ad hoc focus group testing with friends who are roughly in our target market and/or have clever things to say about names is now officially named Vikre Distillery, now has a Facebook page. As of yesterday! And you know, if that doesn’t make something real, then what does, really? Avocado Asparagus Tartine Recipe I'm a bit distracted. In the best way possible. In the way I get now and then when I'm excited about an idea or a prospect. It started in Portland last month, when I had a happenstance chat with a couple of ladies I admire very much.

Grilled Cabbage Wedges with Spicy Lime Dressing — Recipes from The Kitchn But grilling is even better! It adds even more smokiness and char. Like I said, though, if you don't have a grill just pan grill the cabbage, or broil it. Any way you do it, just make sure the edges get a little blackened, and the cabbage is warmed through.

The Greenest Salad Recipe Anytime I travel for an extended period of time, let's say longer than a couple of weeks, I end up craving certain foods from home. The craving creeps up on me like a fungus - not bad at first, but in the end, formidable. This trip it was avocado, then leafy salads, eventually dovetailing into broccoli. The greenest of the green stuff. I stocked up on the lot when I arrived home, and the salad parade started shortly thereafter (hence today's recipe). But let me back up a bit.
