Orange and Fennel Salad

I first ate this salad in Morocco, but then had a similar version in Israel, which is an example of how similar these two cuisines are.  The worst part of making this salad is segmenting the oranges without any pith, but the result is so beautiful.

Cabbage & Fruit Salad

I love making this salad in the fall when pears are in season.  It’s also a beautiful salad to serve on a holiday buffet table.  You can really add any fruits and nuts you want, but try this version first and see how well you like it.

Red Chile Caesar Salad

I first learned to make this salad after visiting the Santa Fe Cooking School.  This version uses a traditional Caesar dressing with the addition of red chile powder.  I use New Mexican chile powder that’s not too spicy hot.  My favorite part of this salad is the croutons, which are sprinkled with chile powder before baking.  I like to use a rustic loaf of bread with the crust removed, then I tear it into big chunks for the croutons.  Be sure to make extra because you’ll be snacking on them all day!

Italian Bread Salad (Panzanella)

Panzanella is an Italian salad using day-old bread that is toasted and tossed with tomatoes.  I like to tear the bread before toasting it, which gives it a more crispy texture.  Of course, using ripe summer tomatoes is the best way to enjoy this salad, but cherry tomatoes any time of year will be delicious too.
