Mango and Blackberry Salad with Ginger

Mango and Blackberry Salad with Ginger

I was in the mood for something really tasty and refreshing the other day and, glancing at the ingredients I had on hand, decided to make this mix of fruits and veggies to go with my homemade veggie smoothie and spelt-crusted pizza for lunch. At first I was going to slice the cucumber and radish … Continue reading

Raw Daikon Salad

Raw Daikon Salad

Daikon is a type of white radish cultivated throughout Asia. It is supposed to have a milder flavour than red radishes, but I still find it rather spicy to eat raw. Since I prefer dressing my salads/vegetables with citrus juice rather than dressings or sauces, I quickly discovered that the acidity in lemons seems to … Continue reading

A Deliciously Bright Way to Enjoy Cucumbers

A Deliciously Bright Way to Enjoy Cucumbers

Cucumbers areΒ so crisp, refreshing, and hydrating! They are often commonly included in salads and sandwiches, bringing moisture andΒ great flavour.

I really didn’t like any of those bottled dressings, and the typicalΒ bagged greens topped with not-so-fresh tomato and onion tasted … Continue reading

Springtime Salad

An easy, fast, and tasty salad, I served this at my Introduction to Meditation Workshop last weekend! Fresh ingredients combined with a simple homemade dressing made the perfect side for our meal of miso soup, falafels, and banana brownies. I chose four simple vegetables – some sweet, some spicy, some tangy – and added in … Continue reading

Pressed Salad

Pressed Salad

I was quite pleasantly surprised when I first tried making the pressed salad because it’s absolutely delicious. There’s a fair amount of preparation to go into this salad, but after that it takes care of itself. This recipe makes a lot of servings but stays fresh in the fridge for up to about 4 days. … Continue reading
