Cuban Rice Salad (Ensalada de Arroz)

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.

Roasted Chicken with Fregola Salad

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.

Poached Salmon Salad

A fantastic salad for the summer! It would also make a nice presentation on a buffet table.  Adapted from Lidia Bastiniach’s Celebrate Like an Italian cookbook.

Wasabi Grilled Tuna with Couscous

Another great seafood recipe from Fresh Fish by Jennifer Trainer Thompson! The wasabi sauce was so good that I spooned over the tuna. The couscous was a great side dish on a hot summer day.

Lemon Mojo

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.

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Great recipe for barbecues! I served it with grilled burgers but, it would be great with anything grilled.   Get the recipe here.

Orzo with Roasted Vegetables

This is one of my favorite Ina Garten,  the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe. It can be served cold or at room temperature so it is a great salad for those backyard cookouts. The recipe is available here

Lebanese Tabbouleh

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.
