This is the perfect salad to serve on pizza ordering-in night. It is healthy and quick to make, you will be well tucked into by the time pizza arrives.
8 cups (1.9 L) spinach leaves, well washed
2 small tomatoes, slice paper thin
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
1/4 small red onion, sliced paper thin
6 Tbsp (90 ml) mayonnaise
1 Tbsp (15 ml) red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) sugar
Big pinch of salt
Several grinds of black pepper
Place the spinach (no need to use baby spinach here) onto individual plates. Top with the tomato slices, avocado slices and onion.
In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.
Drizzle of the salads and serve immediately.
This sandwich is a favourite of mine, while it is made with fairly basic ingredients, the charring of the avocado gives it a whole new personality. Delicious with a bowl of Sweet Potato Corn Chowder! MORE»
This is the most interesting vegetable I have run across recently; its buds form a natural approximation of a fractal, so of course I had to buy it. Steamed whole (how can you not, it looks like a work of art), drizzled with garlicky butter and olive oil and sprinkled with pine nuts…delicioso! MORE»
My grandmother made the best cabbage rolls around. What made hers so special, besides the fact they were made by her, was her sauce; sweet but not overpoweringly so and reduced during the long slow baking into a delicious intensity. It’s her sauce I use on my vegetarian version. Serve with Rösti. MORE»
