Asian-Inspired Charred Corn Salad Recipe Recipe

Corn is in season and it's very inexpensive right now. Charring it then turning it into a salad was a great opportunity to use loads of it. I wanted to give it an Asian twist to I pair the salad with a miso vinaigrette and added diced, ripe mango and a touch of sesame seeds at the end.

Since our recent trip to France, I discovered the multiple use of Le Puy green lentils. These French lentils are ideal when following a vegetarian diet (which is the case for my husband Lulu). Did you know? First, they're packed in protein. And they were orignally grown in the volcanic soils of Puy area, near Clermont-Ferrand in  in the heart of the Vendée region of Western France.

Salmon Orzo Salad Recipe Recipe

Salmon Orzo Salad Recipe

Today, I prepared a salmon orzo pasta salad. The dish is fairly simple. I broke baked salmon into large pieces and combined them with orzo pasta and a variety of vegetables such as zucchini, corn, roasted bell peppers and string beans.

Baby Aria has a good appetite and given that she's more of a toddler now, she’s able to eat whatever we eat. She's becoming independent and discovers the textures, colors and tastes of new foods every day, especially since she's able to pick up food with a spoon and eat by herself. With dishes like this one, feeding kids nutrient-rich, colorful foods couldn't be easier!

Wild Rice and Orzo Salad with Maple Vinaigrette Recipe

This dish is really three recipes in one. I combined my wild rice, kidney bean salad and orzo pasta salad recipes together to make a light and healthy meal. The maple vinaigrette helps tie everything together.

I usually make orzo pasta salad for parties and picnics, but we've been having a heat wave here and we all felt like eating something cool. The addition of kidney beans for protein and wild rice for fiber makes the dish more of a complete meal. If you have some leftover roast chicken, you can dice or shred it and add it to the salad as well.

Corn Chowder Recipe Recipe

Corn Chowder Recipe

08.22.09 by Jackie

Chowders, like many other Western soups, are thickened with a roux. A roux is a combination of flour, butter and milk. To make corn chowder, just add corn kernels and some diced potatoes for texture. It couldn't be simpler than that!

I think chowder comes from the French word chaudière, which is the name of the pot in which the soup is made. It seems though, that the dish first gained popularity in New England. Traditional chowder is prepared with seafood, but I only had some fresh ears of corn on hand. After making countless corn salads, grilled corn on the cob and desserts, it was time to make some good ol' comfort food for dinner.

Ginger and Cilantro Sweet Corn Salad Recipe

This recipe was inspired by Daddy's friend's wife, Anu Auntie. We had a scrumptious dinner at her home while we were visiting the East Coast last month. The dinner was so delicious, and in particular she prepared a ginger corn salad that was out of this world.  It was sweet, a bit spicy and had very complex Asian flavors. 

Corn is in season and it is very inexpensive right now at my local market. It's only a dollar for 4 ears. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to attempt to recreate this wonderful corn salad. I steamed and grilled the corn, cut ooff the kernels, and seasoned them with a lot of Asian flavors like ginger, soy sauce, cilantro and plum sauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
