Salad NicoiseGreat year-round salads are often hard to find if you are focused on sourcing local ingredients — pickings are slim in winter and early spring. I love this salad because it is flexible throughout the year. When I can use fresh tuna, just seared and thinly sliced, with heirloom tomatoes and garden greens, great. In winter, canned tuna is usually in the pantry, and I use wonderful greenhouse hydroponic lettuces, tomatoes, and wintered fingerling potatoes. And of course, eggs are always fresh and available year-round. This salad makes a wonderful meal with some very good bread and a crisp white wine.Broccoli salad recipeMany versions of this classic salad can be found in delis, supermarkets and maybe in your mother’s recipe file. This one is very, very good and I can honestly say that I cannot make this as well as my mother.Heirloom Tomato SaladThis is undoubtedly my favourite salad. Heirloom tomatoes are locally produced, non-hybrid varieties that have not been commercially produced in large quantities. Using beautiful heirloom tomatoes in this salad adds tremendous colour and a sweetness that you do not get with most mass-produced tomatoes. This salad is inspired by the traditional Insalata Caprese of Italy.
"Cooking locally and seasonally isn't a trend. It's the way it's always been. And this will always be true of great food.
