Orzo Salad with Grilled Vegetables + Greek Seasoning

Orzo Salad with Grilled Vegetables + Greek Seasoning

Our Greek Seasoning is the perfect compliment to your favorite veggies from the garden.  This salad has become our go-to for a simple and delicious side for a group as it works well with veggies that are grilled or roasted and can be served warm or room temperature.  Make the components ahead of time and toss together prior to serving.  Serves 10 and leftovers keep well in the fridge.

Grilled Vegetables with Tuscan Oil + Herb Dressing

Grilled Vegetables with Tuscan Oil + Herb Dressing

This herb and spice blend dressing is delicious on grilled vegetables or a traditional salad. The Tuscan Oil Blend has a medium heat because of the crushed red pepper flakes - adjust for your taste. We've listed the vegetables we used (what we had in our pantry/garden), but you can use whatever vegetables you like. Asparagus, eggplant, green onions, or bell peppers would also be delicious.

Smashed Cucumber with Tahini and Everything Chile Oil

Smashed Cucumber with Tahini and Everything Chile Oil

"A surprising juxtaposition of texture and flavor -- fresh, palate-cleansing cucumbers paired with an earthy sesame dressing, enlivened by a daring spicy oil." - Hetty McKinnon, To Asia, With Love

This simple salad is great to serve as a snack or as a side to a bowl of noodles. Smashing the cucumbers tenderizes them, while a sprinkling of salt delivers a lovely pickle-like quality. It was delicious!

Strawberry + Tomato Salad with Sizzled Mustard Seed Halloumi

Strawberry + Tomato Salad with Sizzled Mustard Seed Halloumi

This recipe is from the new cookbook Cook This Book, written by Molly Baz (of Bon Appetit's YouTube fame). With a massive chapter on Salads and Molly Baz's self-proclaimed love for Caesar salads, we had high expectations. The whole family loved it! We will definitely be making it again this summer. It was fresh, flavorful, and unique. Her recipe calls for peaches but we couldn't get our hands on them this early in the season in Maine so we substituted strawberries.

Buckwheat, Carrot, Parsnip and Leek Salad with Tahini Poppy Dressing

Buckwheat, Carrot, Parsnip and Leek Salad with Tahini Poppy Dressing

It’s always a running joke in my family that if I am at the dinner table the amount of veggies need to be doubled.  Needless to say I was super excited when my sister and SKORDO co-founder Annie showed me that Sister Pie had a whole section on salads!  This Buckwheat, carrot, parsnip and leek salad was no disappointment!

Syrian Za'atar Spiced Vegetables

Syrian Za'atar Spiced Vegetables

This recipe is inspired by the Za'atar Spiced Vegetables in The Farmhouse Culture Guide to Fermenting. The minute I read through the book's index I knew this was a must make. Fermented vegetables and za'atar are two of my favorite things. Putting them together was too good to pass up!

Quick Pickled Radishes

Quick Pickled Radishes

Time to admit a hard truth: My refrigerator has been filled with garden grown radishes and I don't really like the taste of them fresh. Friends bringing bundles over as gifts; our neighbor gave us her CSA share this week (thanks, Beth!) and sure enough, 15 pink beauties in there. I even planted a few myself thinking this was the year I'd learn to like them. Turns out, I might be right!

Lebanese Fattoush Salad

Lebanese Fattoush Salad

This is a traditional Lebanese bread salad made with toasted pita bread and mixed greens with fresh vegetables. It is very simple to prepare but provides a unique flavor with the use of ground sumac, a lemony bright berry found on wild sumac bushes in the Middle East and Southern Italy.
