Nicoise Salad with Smoked Trout

This was more of a technique than a recipe, but noting that I used Serious Eats’ general approach to a nicoise, but subbed in smoked trout for the other fish. It was pretty tasty but we weren’t blown away (I’d rather have tuna or even salmon, I think).

Vietnamese Tomato Salad

One of my favorite “summery” things I made this season.

Esquites

Big hit at the crab feast we hosted. I subbed crema for the mayo and doubled the recipe for a crowd.

Farro and Tomatoes with Fish Sauce Vinaigrette

I made this for a party, and honestly didn’t have a ton of it, but I liked the vinaigrette while I was making it a lot. Will have to try it again sometime. The charred scallions are a nice touch.

Chicken Gyro Salad

John and I tag-teamed on this recipe – I marinated the chicken and John cooked it and prepped the rest. I omitted the pita the recipe calls for, but added feta.

Lemon Oregano Chicken with Farro Salad

This was a really nice healthy and satisfying dinner. I slightly adjusted the portion size for calories.

Turkey Taco Salad with Black Beans

I tried a new recipe for this for the sake of the taco challenge, but honestly I think taco salads turn out even better when I just improvise them. Still a solid recipe, though I’m not convinced I need black beans in my taco salad.

Israeli Potato Salad

I think this was the unsung hero/surprise hit of the Zahav dinner. We kept eating this again and again with sausages, burgers, you name it. Honestly probably the best potato salad I’ve ever had.

Winter Israeli Salad

A spin on Israeli salad from Zahav that is less fresh tomato-dependent
