Caesar Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing

This classic salad has come a long way since its 1924 invention by Caesar Cardini at his Tijuana restaurant. It’s now found on virtually every menu in the country - at home and in restaurants. Since there are as many ways to make it as there are cooks, I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about authenticity, just flavour. Here’s my version.

Vegetable Power Protein Soup

Vegetable Power Protein Soup

Who says vegetarian food has no flavour? My family enjoys vegetarian style meals several times a week and we love the rich healthy flavours. This soup features complementary legumes - the peas and lentils - and grains - the corn and rice. Together they form a complete vegetarian protein. You may use water but a quick vegetable stock will add much more flavour.

Asian Cucumber Mint Salad

This is a salad of contrast and balance. The sweetness of the cucumbers is sharpened by the sourness of the spicy dressing, which in turn is cooled by the refreshing mint.

Italian Basil Salad

I really enjoy tossing baby salad greens with tender basil leaves. Together, they flavour the salad with bright bursts of flavour and a jazzy herb twist. The rest of the salad picks up the theme and runs with it!

Couscous

This is a tasty side dish that can be banged out in five minutes. Couscous is a tiny type of cracked, granular pasta that’s already been cooked and dried. It’s actually easier to use than other pastas. Just soak it in some boiling liquid and it’s good to go!

Southwestern Corn Soup With Red Peppers

Southwestern Corn Soup With Red Peppers

Many of the bright flavours of the southwest are found in this distinctively thick soup. Many cooks in that region toss toasted corn tortillas into a simmering broth where they break down and thicken the liquid. I realized I could simply jump-start the process by using cornmeal, the flour the tortillas are made from.
