Default salads

in the interest of a balanced diet and to counter my previous thread about baklava, i thought i'll start a thread about salads.

do you enjoy salads? with dressing or without? what is your favourite dressing?

Dressing is a must: Cucumber ranch.

If the mood is right I may go for thousand island or blue cheese.

Thousand island, Mandarin orange, Italian dressing, creamy ranch are my favorite dressings. Seafood Caesar Salad is my favorite.





Speaking of salads, I love fruit salads. Any fruit mixed with some spice is great.

For Western salads, Blue Cheese is my dressing of choice. Of course roquefort if available. Sometimes, at particular restaurants, I will choose the chef's specialty. I might on occasion try some vinaigrette depending on the greens. There is an orange based salad dressing we found in a recipe book that is outstanding - great for summer.

For deshi সালাদ, nothing beats a twist of lemon or white vinegar. Recently, I have been experimenting with other vinegars and love the effect of "Rice Vinegar" with a dash of sugar on a deshi সালাদ. My version of the salad would include a mix of chopped up red and white onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, cilantro and green chilies tossed up with salt, pepper, red pepper powder, coriander powder and one of lemon juice/white vinegar/rice vinegar. Let it sit in the fridge for a while.

I like fruit chat, with lots and lots of chat masalla... so that you eat one spoon and do hu-ha for one minute.


FRUIT CHAT using CHAT MASALLA




About Salad I like the dressing and the crumbs, don't care much of the salads though except for cumcumber, jalopeno, olives, cheese and egg (in the salad) may be.

A Dhakaiya twist on a Thai fusion dressing is good. You'll need: -

1. Finely chopped shallots.
2. Finely chopped scallions.
3. Finely chopped garlic.
4. Finely chopped thai chillis.
5. Finely chopped dried red chillis, seared in mustard oil.
6. Finely julienned baby carrots.
7. Finely chopped cilantro.
8. Lemongrass and sugar infused thai fish sauce.
9. Extra virgin, first pressed olive oil from Sonoma, California or Greece.
10. Thai rice vinegar.
11. Sea salt.
12. First pressed mustard oil to taste.
13. Freshly cracked Chinese wild peppercorns to taste.
14. Freshly squeezed lime juice to taste.

Thoroughly combine 1 through 13. Add items 12 through 14 to taste. Refrigerate for 6 hours. Toss and serve chilled with sliced English cucumbers, quartered Roma tomatoes and crumbled Feta or Gorgonzola cheese. Not a cheese fan? Toss in some chilled prawns and crabmeat, and softish boiled duck eggs. Leftover tandoori or lemon herb chicken sclices are good too.

The dressing's great with parboiled and chilled asparagus, or oyesters on a half-shell also. Buon apetito.
