Crisp Avocado Salad with Carrot-Ginger Dressing

Crisp Avocado Salad with Carrot-Ginger Dressing

Clean. Cleansing. Refreshing. The exact kind of salad for this time of year. One of my favorite places to get sushi will always be Blue Ribbon Sushi in NYC. I used to go there weekly and now I have to wait for my visits. They have the best simple house salad that I have ever [...]

Texas Peach + Green Bean Salad w Hazelnuts and Tarragon Vinaigrette

Texas Peach + Green Bean Salad w Hazelnuts and Tarragon Vinaigrette

Peaches are in season! And it's May. I had no idea that Texas peaches were different from the northeast varieties that I am used to. These little guys are a great portable size yet still bursting with juicy flavor. I purchased a large bucket of them this weekend from the farmer's market and have been [...]

Heirloom Lettuces with Miso-Tahini

Heirloom Lettuces with Miso-Tahini

This has been my go-to simple salad for the season. Find the freshest veggies that your farmer's market has to offer. Heirloom lettuces, sunflower sprouts and tomatoes made this bowl. Top it off with miso-tahini heaven and crushed toasted sesame + dulce, and you've got yourself a crunch-y fresh start to any meal! Heirloom Lettuces [...]

Kale + Avocado Salad with Quinoa + Citrus

Kale + Avocado Salad with Quinoa + Citrus

My favorite way to eat kale...RAW! Cooking kale can actually kill some of its cancer fighting properties. You want to reap in all of the nutritional benefits of this anti-inflammatory leafy green, as it's full of vitamin k, vitamin c, beta carotene, calcium, and antioxidants! "Massaging" the kale is a great technique perfect for a [...]

Chickpea Miso + Avocado Sprout Salad

Chickpea Miso + Avocado Sprout Salad

This has become a new go-to for me recently. I'll pull this together for a quick snack, or top over good multi-grain toast or brown rice cakes. I'll add this to bigger salads or play with different finishing oils, like chili oil or walnut oil, depending on my mood and how much depth of flavor [...]

Winter Salad: Purple kale, pomegranate, pears + kumquats

Winter Salad: Purple kale, pomegranate, pears + kumquats

Some of my favorite seasonal ingredients were thrown into this salad. I picked up most of the produce from the farmers market this past Saturday and decided to toss it all together with a maple-sweetened dressing. Matchstick pears, pomegranate seeds, kumquats and purple kale. The directions below are a bit estimated, as I am not [...]

Winter Salad: Figs, Dates + Argan.

Winter Salad: Figs, Dates + Argan.

I learned about argan oil while working on the line at Pure Food and Wine in New York City. I hadn't been able to find it anywhere, so when my mother-in-law brought back a bottle for me from a recent trip to Paris, I had to incorporate it in my next dish. Argan trees only [...]

Fig, Lentil + Purple Basil Salad

Fig, Lentil + Purple Basil Salad

I came across local purple basil and late-summer figs at the market over the weekend and have been using them (or snacking on them!) in all sorts of dishes the past couple of days. This became my favorite thrown-together lunch that came together incredibly well. The figs this day were perfectly ripe and the basil [...]

Summer Lettuces

Summer Lettuces

The best tasting salads are made with the freshest farm stand ingredients in the summer. Living in the Hamptons for two months, I frequented the farmer's markets as often as I could. This became the ultimate lunch in our house. Served over crispy, warm bread topped with smashed avocado and red chili flakes. It has [...]
