Stick a fork in a cool summer salad

Edamame, Corn, and Green Bean Salad

Ah, summer! Full of hot weather and the desire to eat cool foods for dinner.

Here’s a dish that will definitely win you over with healthy edamame, crunchy bell pepper, avocado and even roasted nuts. Okay, yeah, and some cheese. The dressing is especially flavorful–a mix of fresh ginger, soy sauce, maple syrup, olive oil, and rosemary.

This can be kept vegetarian or you can add some shredded, cooked chicken breast. Also, raw corn is so delicious in salads. Try it, you’ll thank me.

A Tour of Bob's Red Mill, plus Freekeh with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Almonds, and Miso-Aioli

Freekeh with Roasted Brussels, Almonds, and Miso Aioli

Oh my. My summer slump kind of turned into a huge hiatus – and I can’t promise that I’ll post super regularly from now on, but I am really going to try to get something up at least 3-4 times per month.

Recently (way, way back in September), I was invited to a wonderful food bloggers, behind-the-scenes tour of Bob’s Red Mill in Milwaukie. This was great for a couple of reasons:

FFwD: Salad Niçoise

FFwD: Salad Niçoise

This will be a fairly short French Fridays with Dorie post. Basically, it’s Salad Niçoise. What’s not to like?

I’ve made a Salad Niçoise version before with fresh tuna, which was delicious. This version was too. We used cherry tomatoes from the garden (we still have a few), and everything else called for in the recipe. A great dinner!

Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and my (brief) photos below.

IFBC 2013 in Seattle + Endive and Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Grapes

Endive and Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Grapes; IFBC 2013

This year, the International Food Blogger’s Conference was held in Seattle, which is only a short $25 (or thereabouts) train ride from Portland. Also, this year Dorie Greenspan was the keynote speaker and since I’m in the French Fridays with Dorie group, this event seemed to good to pass up. Especially since I really enjoyed last year’s IFBC.

I mentioned IFBC and Dorie’s upcoming appearance there to everyone in FFwD and to my delight, a lot of us (Doristas) ended up converging on Seattle to . . . → Read More: IFBC 2013 in Seattle + Endive and Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Grapes

FFwD: Wheat (Spelt) Berry and Tuna Salad

FFwD: Wheat (Spelt) Berry and Tuna Salad

This week’s French Friday’s with Dorie was a salad, which was just perfect because earlier in the week it was definitely salad weather around here. In addition, I was pretty excited for this one as I practically had everything already (always a bonus)!

I did use spelt berries instead of wheat berries, but I don’t think it made any noticeable difference in the finished dish. I halved it (since there are just two of us), skipped the tomato, and used a jazz apple instead of strictly red one.
