There is something so great about the fresh taste of celery and usually, it is relegated to being a small ingredient in a larger dish, like an ingredient in soup or salad or even as a minor character in spicy chicken wings. It never dawned on me to make it the focal point of a dinner salad until my good friend Mouna served it to us one night! From that point on, we were hooked, and we’ve enhanced the salad by adding blue cheese and toasted pecans and also incorporating some of the celery leaves, which are not only beautiful but add a flavor all of their own! They are slightly more bitter, but so fresh tasting and they make the salad a bit more complex in nature. This salad is so easy, and all you really need is a good potato peeler or a mandoline slicer if you have one, and your favorite vinaigrette. One of our favorites for this dish is our super light and Zesty White Balsamic (Dijon) Vinaigrette, but any bottled or your favorite homemade dressing will work great. So many options! If you have a dressing you love, please send it our way and we’ll give it a try!
These spinach and feta galettes are a mouthwatering veggie breakfast, or lunch, to satisfy and satiate. They work year-round, too. In the summertime, send your kids off with a healthy last-minute breakfast to eat on the school bus, pack them up for a picnic in the park, or serve as part of a dinner al fresco. Stick them in your kids’ (or your own) packed lunch to break up the monotony of sandwiches and wraps. In the winter? For me, the winter is a time when I cannot handle a cold salad for lunch, but I don’t always fancy a soup, or a big meal. Ditto for breakfast - something slightly warmed through made from buttery pastry ticks all my boxes! These galettes are the perfect light lunch, served warm with a fresh green side salad and a few juicy cherry tomatoes. Who am I kidding, any savoury pastry tarts are a go-to for me through those chilly months! The cheesy, buttery savouriness of flaking pastry and salty cheese complements the iron green tang of the spinach perfectly. These pastry morsels feel indulgent and satisfying, but allow you to feel slightly healthy at the same time. Those two things together? That equates to my favourite type of meal!
