Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad

For the first couple of months of summer, I made fresh spring rolls like it was my job. By the time August rolled (ha!) around, I’d mostly lost my patience for assembling them. I got lazy, okay? And thusly was Deconstructed Summer Roll Salad born!

Massaged Kale and Mango Salad

Massaged Kale and Mango Salad

As with most food trends, I was super late to the phenom that is massaged kale. What can I say? I’m a curmudgeonly aging punk, so it’s only natural that I abhor fads — particularly ones that, when verbalized, make you sound like a new age, foodie asshole.
Panzanella

Panzanella

I was first introduced to panzanella by one of my college housemates, who had this recipe written out on a piece of paper simply headed “what to do with old bread.” As the title suggests, this is a great way to use up slightly stale or dried out bread, or just to squeeze more bread...

Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw

Though it’s admittedly hit-you-over-the-head American food, this simple, tasty broccoli slaw has a warm place in my heart.

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Summer food: because you can’t actually spend 12 hours a day loitering in air-conditioned coffee shops. Because laying on the kitchen floor and humming the same NoFX song for hours at a time will get to you at a certain point. Because humans cannot survive on carrot sticks and ice water alone.
