Couscous Salad with Radishes and Oranges

Oh my. How can a salad jeweled with so many beautifully vivid hues be anything but utterly delicious? It is. It’s magical. Actually, what is truly magical is couscous. It’s so easy.

Spring Radish Salad with Mint, Orange & Pine Nuts

Spring Radish Salad with Mint, Orange & Pine Nuts

With the abundance of fresh local spring radishes picked at their height of freshness and flavor, I’ve been trying to think of other ways to use then rather than just have them play second fiddle as a mere garnish in a green salad.

My favorite Schwaber was traveling in South Germany this week, and so upon returning I thought I would surprise him by keeping that South Germany feeling going (North Italy as he calls it) by presenting him with homemade “Wurstsalat”. Common in southern Germany, it’s one of those dishes you often see served in beer gardens, […]

Japanese Daikon and Carrot Coleslaw

This Japanese style coleslaw is seriously simple and seriously delicious. Daikon and carrot pair fabulously together, especially in a tasty Asian-style dressing. Okay, I am biased, I love most any foods with an Asian flair. So if you haven’t already done so, give daikon a try. It’s delicious. If you are not already familiar, daikon […]
