Salads

Tomatoes, Preserved Lemons, and Sweet Red Peppers

Adapted from The Food of Morocco, by Paula Wolfert

In Morocco as in many Mediterranean countries, the salad course includes a variety of salads, and this lovely salad is a classic in that respect. It’s simple and delicious. However, as I was making this as a stand-alone salad, I added Greek olives. Olives, almonds or pistachios, cheeses, hummus and other salads would be included in a Moroccan spread, so adding a goat or sheep’s milk feta to this salad would be in keeping with Moroccan food. The vanilla? Not so much, but as it’s the theme of our site and because it actually does add a subtle boost to the cumin and red peppers in the salad, I’ve included it in this recipe. Feel free to use it or not.

Couscous Salad with Apples, Cranberries and Smoked Turkey

Turkey CousCous Salad

 Every November I dust this recipe off. This is a great way to use up turkey leftovers as the turkey in the salad can be made with or without smoked turkey. You can also substitute chicken or smoked tofu. Because the smoked turkey makes the salad pop, I use leftovers and pick up a small package of smoked turkey and add a couple of slices. This way even picky eaters won’t notice the leftover turkey.

Corn and Tomato Saute with Vanilla Salt

The creamy sweetness of corn and vanilla pair together perfectly. So here’s an easy late summer recipe to get you started with Vanilla Salt. This is also a nice, low-fat, low-calorie dish that is great for dieters or to serve as a side dish with grilled meat or fish. As it’s delicious at room temperature and it’s finished with balsamic vinegar, it easily doubles as a salad.

Roasted Mushroom Salad

Research has shown that mushrooms contain components that help to prevent cancer and stimulate the immune system. At first it was believed that only Asian mushrooms such as shitake and maitake contained cancer-preventing ingredients, but it appears that even domestic mushrooms are powerful healers. Combined with other healthy ingredients and a bit of vanilla, this is a Power combination that tastes delicious!
