Recipe: Spicy Cucumber Salad

by Jane Wangersky August 4th, 2016| Recipes, Salads
Cucumbers are ripening on farms and in gardens all over the continent right now. They’re one of those mild vegetables often served along with spicier stuff to balance it out. This time, I decided, I was going to team them up with lots of spicy stuff, plus one or two

Recipe: Red Coleslaw

by Jane Wangersky May 19th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
We’re in an interim season right now, not only for the weather, but for fresh produce. It’s hard to tell from one day to the next whether it’s going to be a good day for barbecuing. And while a fresh salad goes naturally with grilled meat, we haven’t yet had

Recipe: Madrid Salad

by Jane Wangersky August 26th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Madrid stew (cocido madrileño) is traditionally a long-cooking one-pot meal with multiple ingredients, and my challenge was to create a dish based on it that called for only four ingredients -- and that we could stand to eat in the middle of August. It turned out to be easier

Seaside Pasta Salad

by Jane Wangersky August 5th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Beach parties are kind of like picnics without ants (usually) but with the added risk of dropping your food in the sand. So the perfect beach party food would be guaranteed not to fall -- but I don’t think I can manage to invent it, at least not with

Carrot Cranberry Salad

by Jane Wangersky June 25th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
What I usually really want to do with carrots is to turn them into something that plays up their sweetness, and this time was no different -- at first. Yes, it was always going to be a salad -- technically, anyway -- but I planned to throw in some

Sweet Crisp Celery Salad

by Jane Wangersky March 26th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Though I wrote last time about using celery in fruit salad, I’d never actually done this with it myself. And to be precise, that’s not what I did this time either; this isn’t a fruit salad so much as a salad with fruit. Here’s how it came about.

Bacon and Egg Salad Sandwich

by Jane Wangersky September 4th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
September is time to think about school lunches and their classic main dish, the sandwich. (At least, it is if your kids' school is opening up on schedule, not staying closed because of a strike -- but in that case, your kids can always try selling sandwiches to the

Green Bean Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

by Jane Wangersky July 31st, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
We get vegetables delivered every week, and unless I remember to check the order online and tweak it, what we get is the company’s selection of what’s in season. It usually works out pretty well even if I don’t remember to make any changes, because the produce is fresh

Lemon Pepper Potato Salad

by Jane Wangersky July 24th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s too hot to turn on the oven and make my lemon pepper oven fries, which is a shame because they’d go so well with the burgers we’re going to be grilling in the backyard . . . but that doesn’t mean we can’t have potatoes flavored with lemon

Mixed Greens Salad with Basil Vinaigrette

by BnB Finder July 1st, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
What makes this very simple salad special is the fresh homemade dressing -- and that's simple, too. Leaves of fresh sweet basil, with their unique taste, are puréed with olive oil and white wine vinegar, which will take you just seconds with an immersion blender (a food processor will

Asian Asparagus Salad — With A Touch of Sushi

by Jane Wangersky June 26th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
It's asparagus season -- it must be, the stuff was half price the last time I went grocery shopping. Though asparagus certainly isn't the first vegetable I think of when I've got a salad to make, it's what we had this week, so it's what I went with. All
Roasted Pepper and Olive Salad

Roasted Pepper and Olive Salad

by BnB Finder June 24th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Here's a quick but complex-tasting and spicy salad -- quick, that is, if you have roasted peppers around. If you don't, they take some time but they're really easy to cook. Just heat up the broiler, cut some fresh peppers in half, flatten them out as much as you
