My new favourite recipe from Jenn Segal of Once Upon a Chef. Salad is tossed in an Cider Vinaigrette and can be perfectly paired with many fall dishes.
Black Bean Quesadillas is an easy recipe for kids to make. You can prepare ahead of time and cook just before dinner or cook up the quesadillas and then warm them in the oven just before eating. Double the recipe if you want extra sauce for another time.
Orzo Salad can be made in the morning or even the night before. Serve the salad for lunch or pair it with marinated flank steak or salmon. The salad is also a crowd pleaser and holds up well at a summer pot luck.
This is the perfect summer appetizer or addition to your meal to showcase fresh tomatoes and herbs. Use the best tomatoes you can find, grape tomatoes cut in 4 also work well with less water content. Use fresh or dried herbs, whatever is handy. Mix the topping ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. You can also toast the bread before hand so that when your guests arrive you just have to top the bread and broil for a few minutes.
This colourful salad pairs perfectly with different grilled chicken, pork, shrimp or fish and can be made ahead of time to bring out the nutty, sweet and spicy flavours. Leftovers can be served as a salsa with tortilla chips then next day.
Prepare the chicken in the marinade ahead of time in a ziplock bag in the fridge. One hour before soak your skewers in cold water.
