A dish of mine, Chicken with Caramelized Sumac Onions, Preserved Lemon and Pearled Couscous, was featured on Food52 as a superb one-pot meal. Afterwards, a friend of mine told me how much she, too, loves sumac, and asked if I'd ever tried it atop sauteed spinach. I'd not but was immediately intrigued and that evening made this (with chard). For lunch the next day I made this again (using kale and arugula). I ate every bite both times.Read More
This recipe was in the Dec 2010 Bon Appétit and is absolutely divine. I once omitted the parsnips and just added more potatoes and the dish was still fabulous so feel free to be flexible. I've never served this on salad greens but tend to serve the veggies around the salmon on a large platter; you can garnish with rosemary sprigs if you want. Also, the wine deglazing is nice but not necessary, so if you don't have any red wine open or you don't want to open a bottle, just skip this. The salmon is so moist that no one will miss the wine drizzle.Read More
To me, this dish is simple perfection and highlights the beautiful bounty of local farmers markets and eating seasonably from them. I had a huge mess of just-picked mixed baby greens -two kinds of kale, mustard- and some fresh, young goat cheese- wouldn't a combo of those make a lovely stuffing for fresh ravioli? Yes!
I always like whole wheat with greens so incorporated some whole wheat pastry flour into the pasta dough. As well, since spring is on the horizon, I added lemon zest to the ravioli filling and made a lemon-butter sauce to top it all off.
