The wonderful Italian providore nearby has ensured that I use more Italian cheeses in the kitchen. It is good to have a quality supply of Parmesan, Pecorino and Provolone for grating and also ones for eating. As well as these classics they stock other Italian cheeses which we are exploring.
Because of this shop we are including more Parmesan and Pecorino in our day to day eating – from munching slivers for supper to including in our dishes. Today, this simple salad we came across in Bittman’s 101 Salads, is a cracker.

Yay for warm weather! And as soon as the weather turns the slightest bit warm, I begin making Summery salads again. I find them the most healthy type of dish for Spring, Summer and into Autumn. As each year passes, we eat salads further into winter, roasting our ingredients, or incorporating barley, freekeh, quinoa and other filling and satisfying ingredients.
Today’s salad is definitely a Spring dish, a Mushroom Salad. Spring Mushrooms are grilled with some red onion and then dressed. It is gorgeous.

For a change, this is a cooked salad. Mushrooms are sautéed with shallots, and then spinach is wilted in their heat. Blue cheese is added and it softens and melts, forming a dressing for the salad. It is an incredibly delicious salad that can be eaten warm or at room temperature. Use a good quality blue cheese for the best results.
This is another salad from the Bittman Salads, and I am on a journey to make all of the vegetarian ones (and adapt as many of the non-vegetarian ones that I can). Focusing on salads in the warmer weather months has changed my diet considerably, and for the better. I encourage you to make a salad per day – often it can form the basis for your packed lunch (sometimes your whole lunch), or have it as a salad course at dinner time. In this salad, we were fortunate enough to pick the spinach from the garden.
