Part 2 of my Cuban salad series. Fantastic hearty salad with chicken and rice! Great for outdoor parties or picnics. I omitted the toasted sesame seeds, for personal taste. Adapted from Cuba, the cookbook. Recipe invented by Vivian Costa Leal, a Cuban housewife.
With temperature in the high 90’s last week, I searched for some great salads for dinner. This delicious chicken salad is adapted from The Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook. I used a rotisserie chicken found at a local market and I used Israeli couscous instead of fregola.
A very light and refreshing potato salad. The recipe can be easily doubled for summer barbecues. Six lemons seems like an awful lot but it requires that you peel and remove the white pith and then separate it from the membrane. Adapted from Rustic Spanish from Paul Richardson.
Great recipe for barbecues! I served it with grilled burgers but, it would be great with anything grilled. Get the recipe here.
This is made in many different ways. Here I increased the bulghur wheat portion to make it meatier by following the cooking instructions on the box. Below I will give you the recipe that technically is the original recipe for tabbouleh. It is courtesy of Culina Mundi by Chef Hussein Fakih.
