When making an authentic Greek salad, there are two things to mind. First—you may not use lettuce (I know, I know, you’ll never catch me saying that about any other kind of salad.) And second—the feta is better if it comes in a big salty block.
During one of our favorite dinners, we were served a side of coconut jicama slaw. Light and crunchy, it was dressed with just lime juice and fish sauce. I had about four sizeable servings before I realized it wouldn’t be that hard to make at home. So, here you have it!
One of the most common cooking questions I receive? How do I properly chop an onion, garlic, a tomato, or a bell pepper? How you slice and dice actually affects how your food tastes. So here's a little bell pepper chopping 101 (a trick I learned from my days at Le Cordon Bleu Paris)
I created this gem of a recipe last November and have been waiting to share it with you: homemade crispy fried onions. Delicious on their own, but even better over green beans. This Thanksgiving, don’t serve mushy green beans, swimming in a pool of canned mushroom soup.
I made my first batch of pickled onions a few months ago and haven’t been able to stop. The jar sits in my fridge, and I just grab a little forkful for tacos, salads, nachos, even avocado toast. They add the prettiest pop of pink.
I love the combination of lemon, Parmesan, and cracked pepper with this asparagus salad, but there are lots of other flavors you can try: sun dried tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, mozzarella, or even chopped pistachios.
