We’re eating… Greek Cheese, Cherry Tomato & Walnut Arugula Salad with Hazelnut Oil

Hello there! Here’s… More salad! My body’s not complaining – Neither are my tastebuds really. The spice of arugula, sweetness of tomatoes, nuttiness of walnuts, and crumbly-richness of Greek cheese… All married into a wholesome salad with a drizzle of ultra-fragrant Hazelnut Oil. I do have a thing for all these exotic oils. Super yum!

We’re eating… Smoked Salmon & Clementine Arugula Salad in White Truffle Oil & Basil Vinegar Vinaigrette

Winter’s not exactly a good time to be having summery salads, but my body and stomach have been become a little wary of the heavy food brewing in the kitchen. Think stews and soups and a lot of hot chocolate! These days I’d been experimenting with homemade salad dressings and drizzles, and I’d come to the conclusion that homemade sauces are way tastier and healthier than their store-bought counterparts. What’s more, you get to customize the food to the exact taste you want it – How much better can this get?

For today, we have a smoked salmon and clementine salad with arugula (rocket leaves) which paired perfectly with a new baby in my cupboard – Basil White Wine Vinegar! It made a wonderfully light and delicate vinaigrette with some White Truffle Oil and a dash of whole-grain mustard. Yum! Enjoy the photos below:

Short Recipe: Pan-Grilled Fig & Veggie Salad, in Fig Vinegar

I first discovered the wonders of a perfectly-done Grilled Vegetable Salad at Kith Cafe in Park Mall, an unpretentious cafe and diner at Dhoby Ghaut in Singapore. And I have been in love since! Why is that everything that’s been grilled tastes so good – Chicken wings, seafood, meat on skewers (satay), and even vegetables! And I’d been attempting to make my own, although with little success since I don’t have a grill. *hic*

But it’s alright… I’ll make do with what I have, so why not “pan-grill”? This is a 100% unorthodox method and the goods sure don’t taste as good as its properly grilled counterparts, but this should cut it for people who don’t have grills or broilers at home. Most of all, you get to savour these commonly neglected vegetables at their very best – Caramelized, slightly crisp, and drizzled with a light glaze of Fig Vinegar. Enjoy!

Short Recipe: Oriental Cold Tofu Salad (with Simple Oriental Salad Dressing)

The above image is a little misleading – Firstly, the brown chunks that look like grilled chicken are actually toasted bread that I’d torn into bits and shreds in an attempt to create croutons. They’re clearly not croutons but were still tasty… Surprisingly they came out looking like grilled chicken in the picture so I guess it isn’t such a bad thing after all?
