The Wedge salad is one of these very classic, simple recipes that's accessible to everyone. One that's been loved for generations and modified along the way to accommodate changing tastes. When I've had this at steakhouses it's usually served with a very thick bleu cheese dressing, but I prefer to leave that to my buffalo wings. This version is topped with a lighter vinaigrette. I've smashed the blue cheese into the vinegar & oil base so that the flavor carries throughout the salad. It can be made into a meal by adding some chopped chicken breast, chopped hard boiled egg or tiny shrimp. The salad feels festive, even if you're just making it for yourself to eat alone in front of the TV. Usually I present it to myself all pretty on the plate, and then I proceed to chop it into bits at the table with my knife and fork.

I do like to experiment with my salads in many ways by adding beans, by adding different vegetables, sprouted green beans , pomegranate seeds etc. They taste amazing in any form. Doctor's say, eat greens and beans for healthy life. And with hectic life schedule, people hardly get time to exercise. So why not turn to some healthy eating habits , which no doubt also tastes yummilicious. My Chicken salad with pasta recipe is very simple and basic and can be altered as you like by adding or omiting the ingredients mentioned. If you are vegetarian, don't add chicken, instead, add some Tofu. Also more greens can be added . If you don't like vinegar, substitute with lime juice. When I make some healthy recipes, I want to make sure that they are completely healthy, so in my chicken and greens salad, instead of normal pasta, I used Whole Wheat Pasta .
If you haven't tried samphire in a salad then now is the time! You'll love it with tomatoes and balsamic vinegar.

The base for gaeng kua is a red curry paste made without the roasted cumin, coriander, and other spices ground into the standard red curry paste. Wild lime leaves are traditional, but if you cannot find them, you will still have a wonderful dish. Fresh pineapple is lovely, but canned pineapple works fine, too. With jasmine rice, nests of thin rice noodles or angel hair pasta, and a green salad, this makes an elegant little meal." -Nancy McDermott, Quick and Easy Thai. I'm a pretty good cook, but there is something about Thai food that's always seemed complicated and exotic to me. That's why I LOVE this book : Quick & Easy Thai by Nancie McDermott, (Chronicle Books, 2004). Nancie was kind enough to let me re-print one of my favorite recipes, which is a perfect mixture of the tastes I'm drawn to over and over again; tropical fruit, searing chilis, seafood, and Thai spices. I photographed some of the steps along with my final version of the dish to illustrate the process. Luckily the recipe was truly quick and easy because I wasn't about to wait. I inhaled this entire dish immediately after taking these photos.
