FENNEL SLAW

A Perfect Summer Side Dish... A crisp, delicious compliment to grilled chicken, fish or even meat off the barbecue.

Grilled Chicken With Avocado & Corn Salad

A quick and easy, light dinner salad off the grill. A great option is to add shaved fennel, shaved radishes and diced mango.

GRILLED CORNBREAD SALAD with ARUGULA AND FRESH HERBS

This casual salad, served with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, makes a delicious first course. Simply add leftover chicken or sliced steak and use store-bought cornbread and it doubles as a delicious, simple weeknight meal. The addition of fresh herbs in their whole leaf form adds a wonderful bright flavor and an aromatic element to the dish.

GRILLED GUACAMOLE

Grilling the avocados adds a delicious charred flavor to the guacamole. And using a zip lock bag to blend the ingredients keeps the avocados from turning brown!
GRILLED MUSTARD POTATO SALAD

GRILLED MUSTARD POTATO SALAD

The smoky flavor of the barbecue adds incredible dimension to this twist on potato salad. Adding the dressing to the potatoes while they’re still warm allows them to absorb the flavor. (You can hold the potatoes at that point until ready to grill.) Serve the potato salad warm, for the ultimate flavor.
Japanese Potato Salad

Japanese Potato Salad

Excerpted from The Picnic by Marnie Hanel, Andrea Slonecker, and Jen Stevenson (Artisan Books). Copyright (c) 2015. Illustrations by Emily Isabella This dish offers the definitive answer to that Thanksgiving imponderable: Why can’t we eat mashed potatoes year-round? We can! And in this Japanese twist on potato salad, they’re even better by the chilled spoonful. Serve with the Horseradish-Rubbed Flank Steak with Blistered Tomatoes

Kale & White Bean Salad

With the last days of Summer still lingering, a light raw Kale salad is a wonderful side dish.
KALE & WHITE BEAN SALAD

KALE & WHITE BEAN SALAD

Any type of kale will work but any dark leafy green such as collard greens, chard or spinach will be great in this recipe. Either use canned white beans or my favorite is to buy cannellini beans in the deli section.

Lentil, White Bean & Tuna Summer Salad

This Mediterranean style salad is great for a light lunch or a quick dinner. The Parsley and Herb Vinaigrette is bright and fresh tasting.

MY FAVORITE NICOISE SALAD

Fill a large platter with arugula and watercress and arrange the different components of this salad on top. The presentation is colorful and very impressive….A French Classic at its best. Canned Tuna in olive oil can be substituted.
