One of my most favorite appetizers that my mother makes are little eggplant rolatini’s with a thick walnut cilantro pesto filling, marinated in oil and vinegar. My family pounces upon these magnificent delicacies as tho we are about to be hit by a Zombie Apocalypse. I have seen my mother make these often, and know the drill. But in my small kitchen, they would take me a while. You all know I LOVE to make complicated foods that have like a million steps, but I had company coming over, not enough time to make the rolls, eggplants, and pesto sauce in my fridge. So I made this salad instead. Tastes almost as good as my mom’s rolls. You want to let this sit in the fridge though for at least a couple of hours, or even overnight. The longer, the better.

Salmon: the other orange meat. Ok fine it might be the only orange meat. But hey, what to do. Its flaky, juicy, and mui delicioso. Sprinkled with home-roasted nuts, marinated in a delicious Sake and honey glaze, over crispy greens… yum. This is sure to be a hit for any meal. If you don’t have or don’t want to invest in Sake (which I could never understand) you can probably use rice wine vinegar, just adjust the amount to taste.
Summer is almost here. Whether or not you want to believe Staten Island Chuck or whatever other groundhogs all over the planet saw their shadows or didn’t, I really don’t care. This salad is amazing. Top it with a few olives if you’d like (please get pitted olives, or be trained in the Heimlich). You could even throw in a few chunks of goat cheese for an extra zing.
Super easy to make and ridiculously easy to eat. Save yourself the trip of going to Grill Point, Grill Palace, and all the other Grills. You just need a pan at home. Perfect meal to make your hairy chested man when he doesn’t want falafel burgers, and perfect to make for your hopefully not hairy chested woman when you wanna show her what a real hairy chested man you are.
Tis the season of the Cranberry. And I LOVE cranberry sauce. Make it throughout winter. Its always in my fridge. But ya can’t just eat cranberry sauce! So here’s a healthy salad to incorporate some yummy leftover cranberry sauce. And if you don’t have any, you can also use my plum sauce.
Falafel. Synonyms include Heartburn, Israeli, and Hairy Chest. Basically all the things that make good dates go bad. But not this falafel! These burgers will have you and your date fighting under the bedsheets, not over the Pepto. Trust me, I’m your doctor, and I do not say Mylanta.
Watch out. This recipe is so easy that you may actually get dumber by reading this.
Made this salad up this Shabbos when my grams, uncle, aunt, and cousins came over for dinner. Not a bad invention, methinks.
I know, I know. I always use Arugula. But what can I say? It’s unusual. It has style. It’s got flair. It was there. Thats how it became the nanny. PS thanks Dr Sandy Barakat for helping me come up with the name for this salad. You can be my nanny any time
