Hitting you with a light, fresh and flavourful winter salad recipe this week! This Beet & Citrus Salad With Shaved Toscano and Thyme is insanely easy to throw together and looks like art on the plate! The natural sweetness and earthiness of Cookstown's organic mixed beets combined with tart and tangy oranges and grapefruit, peppery microgreens, crunchy walnuts and salty Monforte Toscano, this salad hits all the right flavour notes.
Fall might be creeping just around the corner but we're still celebrating the flavors of summer over here with this recipe! Sweet grilled peaches from Warner's Farm are paired with our salty fried Monforte halloumi and featured alongside some farm-fresh green beans, fennel, mint, cherry tomatoes and red onion. All served on a bed of New Farm greens lightly dressed with some olive oil and lemon juice and a generous drizzle of a flavourful, herb-packed Green Goddess dressing. The perfect recipe to whip up in celebration of our last long weekend of summer!
The combination of dill and cucumber is truly one of the most refreshing and complimentary flavour combinations out there! And in this salad, these flavours truly shine when combined with our creamy and salty Ontario made feta from Best Baa dairy, crunchy organic almonds from Mike & Mike'sand a tangy chardonnay vinaigrette. The perfect balance of flavours and textures, this salad is ready to eat in under 10 minutes from prep to plate!
Thanks to our local farmers and producers, we've really grown a new love and appreciation for a very underrated root veg: the radish. Radishes are often relegated to the role of a garnish or to add a slice of color to store-bought salad mixes but these beauties deserve their own moment in the sun! Radishes are a delicious vegetable that can be eaten raw or added to any number of roasted or stir-fried dishes, where their signature peppery flavor can truly shine. In this post, you'll find 3 different recipes to utilize these beautiful root veggies: Black Radish Chips, Roasted Radish Salad With Feta & Mint, and Quick Pickled Watermelon Radish.
This is the ultimate summertime seasonal salad that combines two of our warm weather favourites - sweet corn and peaches! Paired with spicy arugula, tangy feta cheese, crunchy Ontario quinoa and a Dijon vinaigrette, this salad is the perfect combination of textures and flavour.
