Caesar Salad with Chicken and Caperberries

Caesar Salad with Chicken and Caperberries is an healthier version from the traditional one. It doesn’t contain as much sauce, nor too much olive oil. Also, I’ve cut on the bacon bits, back in Canada, some people could crucify me for this…sorry. And finally, I took off the anchovies, which I learned while researching for the recipe,… Continue reading Caesar Salad with Chicken and Caperberries

Apple, cheddar and walnut Salad

I have to confess… I am a salad freak… I love salads, and love to change them all the time. I’ll explain… I never do the same salad twice, I mean by definition a salad is a mix of ingredients, so I always mix it up. Sometimes I simply change a bit the dressing, or… Continue reading Apple, cheddar and walnut Salad

Coleslaw

Vinegar coleslaw is the first salad I’ve ever loved and it’s so healthy, when no mayonnaise is used… There was that restaurant called St-Hubert in my hometown, when ordering, they would always ask you;” coleslaw creamy or traditional?” I would always take the “traditional one” which was more vinaigrette style.

I usually do it in 48 hours, changing the side of the fish midway. The best part for it would be the less fatty part of the salmon, but in… Continue reading Gravlax

Caprese pasta salad

Everyone love a good Caprese salad (tomatoes, fresh basil, mozzarella with olive oil), so why not change it a bit and make it a pasta salad, and since it’s spring why not add a few green asparagus to celebrate that!

Carpaccio de Zucchini

This recipe I’ve encountered in a Catalan village, so simple but highly surprising. We don’t get to see zucchinis uncooked… but it’s actually a pretty good raw veggie. There is a nice crunch to it and it’s got a soft taste that allows the extra-virgin olive oil to shine. Such a beautiful and simple appetizer,… Continue reading Carpaccio de Zucchini
