I made this salad for supper tonight, as I do quite often in the summer, and it occurred to me that I could also post it here. My version is a slight evolution (or more accurately devolution?) of this 2008 Canadian Living recipe. I also use the dressing/vinaigrette on normal salads.

Because I have made this twice lately and it's brilliant.

NB: i really can't estimate the serving numbers on this one. No matter how much I scale the recipe down it is always More Than Warranted. Maybe 5-6 as a side dish at these measurements.

Southern Living magazine had a no-cook issue that had a great recipe for summer rolls with peach slices and barbeque pork. They were delicious, but also a lot of work - they were intended for a party, where you'd make one for each guest and then your guests would make the rest themselves, so making them for my husband and son and I was, as I said, a lot of work. So instead I decided to make the recipe as a salad!

This is a brand-new recipe for me, so new I haven't tried it yet. But this recipe from is vegan and gluten-free, which was so exciting I thought I'd post it untested. There is a link to a printer friendly version at the webpage: Socca Flatbread with Spring Pesto and Salad

I'm signed up to make a non-vegan salad (though vegan's okay too) for Friday, and I want to make something absolutely awesome, something that isn't your typical salad but makes you want to convert to salad-dom from here on out anyway. Any recommendations? recipes? links? sources of inspiration? All would be most welcome.

n.b. am intrigued by [personal profile] amalnahurriyeh's Green Salad with Pistachio-crusted Goat Cheese Balls & Onion Vinaigrette, but would like some backup options just in case. (I like doing the 'Cook's Assistant' chore at the Co-op where I live--it consists of making a salad & (sometimes) making a desert; we generally serve 30+ people every dinner. I've got a rep for unusual-but-delicious salads, mostly garnered trying out recipes from the New York Times article 101 Simple Salads for the Season. Unfortunately, it is no longer summer, which makes certain ingredients harder to come by.)

Potato salad in any form is one of my favorite things. This version has a vinaigrette dressing.

One of my friends is getting married in a few weeks in his hometown, and threw a potluck picnic today for those of us who can't travel to be there in person. I asked him if he had any particular requests, and he asked for "that salad you made at your birthday party last year, with the vinaigrette?" So this is the salad.

The happy couple are about to leave New York and take up itinerant residence in multiple other countries (it's very exciting being an academic), which means they asked for no gifts, but I couldn't resist, so I bought them some chocolate, which I figure they can snarf on the plane to their wedding destination.

CSA season approacheth. In my corner of the world, this means weeks and weeks of bags and bags of leafy greens, with the odd rainbow carrot or Sputnik kohlrabi or fistful of herbs to liven things up. Glorious leafy greens! But. Bagses and bagses.

Step one:  Make yourself some homemade bread.
Step two:  Slice a nice thick slice.  Cut it into chunks.
Step three:  Heat oven to 350 F.
Put down some parchment paper on a cookie sheet.  Spray with olive oil.  Sprinkle sea salt on oil.  Pick up bread chunks.  Shake off the bitty pieces that will only burn and cause your fire alarms to go off really loud when you open the oven to check on the croutons.  Spread out chunks on cookie sheets.  Spray and salt tops of bread chunks. 
Put in oven for 5-6 minutes.  Pull out, flip chunks over, put back in over for 4-6 more minutes.  Depending on the bread you use, the cookie sheet, and the size of the chunks, you will have to adjust the times to fit your needs.

These can be stored for up to a week (the longest they've ever lasted in my house) but will need to be tossed into the oven or toaster oven to re-crisp.  Sometimes, I just make enough for a salad in the toaster oven and I set it at 400F. 

You'll never be able to eat croutons from the store again.

I came up with this salad for a holiday dinner last year. I liked it so much that this year, I made it to serve to people outside my actual family, and they seemed to really enjoy it, too!

This is sometimes called harvest salad, so I think it fits nicely with the fall theme. Very simple, but I think it's worth sharing.

I had this at a friend's house one day for supper and it was so fabulous I want to share it with the world. So, enjoy this! It really is excellent. I am sorry I don't have any pictures of the salad, but it looks deelish.
