Peach season has already begun in Ukraine. That’s why I use them as often as possible. They’re beautiful now.

This is another great combination of my favorite burrata and peaches. You can serve tender ricotta or Stracciatella the same way.

Grilled Peaches with Burrata, Arugula salad, Almonds and balsamic

Recipe

PREP TIME COOK TIME MAKES
7 minutes 5 minutes 1-2 servings

INGREDIENTS (serves 1-2)

  • 1 peach
  • 1 burrata
  • 3 cup arugula
  • 2 tbsp almonds
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tbsp (10g) butter
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil for frying

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut the peach into four pieces. Take out the pit.
  2. In a skillet, melt the butter and add 1 tsp vegetable oil (this is to ensure that the butter does not burn).

You can fry peaches in a grill pan. Then you will have beautiful stripes.

  1. Place the peach slices in the skillet, cut side down, and fry over low heat on both sides, only on the cut side, until golden. This takes about 4 minutes.
  2. Toast the almonds in a dry pan and coarsely chop them with a knife.
  3. Wash the arugula well.
  4. In a bowl, mix honey, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Add the arugula and stir.
  5. Place the peaches on a plate, next to the burrata (break it into 2-4 pieces with your hands). Salt the burrata and drizzle with olive oil.
  6. Place the arugula salad next to it and sprinkle with almonds.

This is an absolutely cracking potato salad – sweet and warm new season’s baby potatoes, juicy and spicy radishes, fragrant roasted walnuts and honey-mustard dressing. It’s like a song about spring.

The salad is great on its own, but it can be a cool addition to chicken, sausages or fish. For example, to smoked salmon. You can also use old potatoes. But I would like you to use young potatoes for this salad. In addition to the dill and green onions, you can add fresh mint leaves. Also, add a lot of black pepper!

Tips

If your radishes have become a little soft, you can freshen them up by putting them in a cold water for about half an hour.

Potato Radish salad with cucumber, walnuts, and honey-mustard dressing

Recipe

PREP TIME COOK TIME MAKES
25 minutes 10 minutes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS (serves 2)

  • 600 g (1 lb 5 oz) young potatoes 
  • 300 g (10 oz) radishes
  • 200 g (7 oz) fresh cucumbers
  • 70 g (2½ oz) walnuts
  • 1 bunch of green onions (50 g, 1½ oz)
  • ½ bunch of dill

For the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Lots of black pepper
  • Salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Peel or scrub the potatoes well with a brush. Cover with water and boil until tender.
  2. Roast the nuts in a dry pan. Coarsely chop with a knife.

The nuts can even burn slightly, this will give a special flavor to the salad. Just a little! 

  1. In a large serving bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dressing.
  2. Cool the potatoes a bit so they can be handled. Slice into thick circles. If the potatoes are large, cut them in half.
  3. Put the potatoes in the bowl with the dressing and mix gently. A silicone spatula is perfect for this. Cover while you cut up the rest of the ingredients for the salad.
  4. Cut the radishes and cucumbers into thin slices; you can use a slicer.
  5. Finely chop the green onions. Break the dill into small sprigs. Add the herbs, cucumbers, and radishes to the potatoes. Stir. Salt, if necessary. Sprinkle with walnuts.

There’s a new favorite salad on the block!

crispy prosciutto & charred corn arugula salad

I won’t lie, I’m feeling the fall vibes now with it being September. I’m ready to jump head first into all the cozy soups and warming pasta dishes, but it’s still summer! And I can’t let my beloved sweet corn go It’s just the best and we only get it for, like, five minutes a year. Gotta make the best of it!

arugula with parmesan

Enter this lovely little salad. My goal was to create an easy summer house salad. Or just an easy summer greens salad. Something where the corn could shine, but nothing overwhelming or too crazy. I love a good “starter” salad and they definitely have their place in my meal plans when we’re trying to get in some greens.

crispy prosciutto

This salad TASTES super fancy and delicious. It tastes like it has more ingredients than you’d think. The only things in the salad are arugula greens, corn, prosciutto and parmesan! Of course – salt and pepper. And then, we drizzle with the vinaigrette. But our base consists of those four ingredients.

It’s so wonderful because those ingredients are delish on their own, and when they come together, it’s a simple flavor powerhouse.

Sweet, crisp corn.

Crispy, salty and savory prosciutto.

Peppery, refreshing arugula.

Buttery and nutty parmesan!

crispy prosciutto & charred corn arugula salad

I mean, I’m hungry just writing those out. Do they even need a dressing?! 

They do though. Because this dressing is FAB.

crispy prosciutto & charred corn arugula salad

I can’t even tell you how much I love the parmesan vinaigrette. If you haven’t had the blue cheese vinaigrette from Everyday Dinners yet, you are missing out. It’s this wonderful briney and tart vinaigrette that has blue cheese in it – which basically gets marinated in the dressing.

The parmesan is the same way, but since it has smaller pieces, it makes the dressing a bit more hearty and blends in. It’s fantastic. 

Also, super flavorful and works on SO many salads. You really can use it on anything!  (more…)

16 Cool-as-a-Cucumber-Salad Recipes

We love ’em for snacking, or slicing them thin and using them to infuse water so it makes it feel like we’re at a spa. But another way to enjoy cucumbers is in the form of a crisp, cool cucumber salad. Keep things simple by tossing them in herby yogurt sauce, mixing them with mozzarella and chickpeas for a hearty twist on a Panzanella salad, or giving them some kick with a spicy, dry-fried combination of Thai dried chile peppers, jalapeño peppers, and Sichuan peppercorns. If any of those ideas sound appealing, you’re in luck. We’re sharing 16 different cucumber salad recipes that are crisp and refreshing (even when they pack in some heat).

1. Cantaloupe & Cucumber Salad with Basil & Feta

This simple summery salad isn’t too fussy or over-the-top, which is for the best. The low-key method really allows the melon and cucumbers to shine alongside feta cheese and fresh basil. Just be sure to use really good quality ingredients (down to the balsamic vinegar and flaky sea salt) so that everything is on its A-Game.

As you prepare this, you find yourself somewhere in a Greek tavern, like on Corfu. Some will judge me and say that Greek salad cannot be changed. But this is my version. I add some Dijon mustard, good balsamic vinegar, and capers to the dressing. And I sprinkle it with roasted pumpkin seeds. And, I admit, sometimes I put avocado in it.

Be sure to use only good ripe vegetables. If it’s not tomato season, it’s better to use cherry tomatoes – there’s a better chance for great results with them.

How to make greek salad dressing with balsamic vinegar? You need a good balsamic vinegar. Greek or Italian is great. Don’t take the cheapest one with a bad non-natural composition.

Greek Salad with Balsamic Vinegar and Pumpkin Seeds

Dressing with balsamic vinegar and grainy mustard

PREP TIME COOK TIME MAKES
3-5 minutes 10 minutes 2-3 servings

  • 1 tbsp capers

For dressing:

  • 4 tbsp good Greek virgin olive oil
  • 1½ tbsp good balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp grainy mustard
  • Sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put the pumpkin seeds in a dry skillet and roast over medium heat, stirring until they puff up. You will hear them start to crackle.

Who else still can’t get enough summer eats?!

sweet corn, peach and tomato salad

Me, me, me!

corn and peaches

We eat super seasonally in our house and I can assure you that we’re still on the major summer produce train. The amount that I buy from our local farm each week is wild. The kids adore fruit, and we eat a lot of it on the weekend too. I will grill any and all summer vegetables that I can get my hands on.

And when it comes to sweet corn? Well… all bets are off.

Oh yes.

Our corn here in Pennsylvania is SO good.

In fact, the corn we’ve been getting tastes the best that it has in years! I don’t even want to tell you how many ears I grill at once. I could just eat that for dinner and be happy. 

tomatoes and peaches

But of course! I need to make things a little fancier. Throw together the incredible produce and make a meal out of it. A perfect summer plate, if you will. 

sweet corn, peach and tomato salad

This is the ultimate sweet & savory, crisp and refreshing dish. The peaches, corn and tomatoes are ridiculous right now. Perfectly ripe and sweet. The corn has a refreshing crunch – I use it fresh right off the cob. That’s right. I don’t cook it. It is SO sweet and crisp when you slice it right from the cob – it’s incredible.

Of course, you can cook it if you really want to. I would grill it before anything else!

The peaches are so juicy. The cherry tomatoes taste like candy. (I used to hate when my parents said that but wow, it’s true. This must mean I’m officially old.) 

sweet corn, peach and tomato salad with crispy quinoa

Then! We go and drizzle it with the most perfect fresh basil vinaigrette. I’ve used this recipe in a few dishes lately on the blog. It comes from my new book Everyday Dinners and it is a dream. So vibrant and refreshing and absolutely delicious. It’s a great way to use up that fresh basil if you’re all pesto-ed out.

Or, if you’d just prefer more of a dressing than a grainy pesto!  (more…)
