Week 4: Four Weeks of Salad as a Meal Challenge

One thing I’ve loved about the Salad as a Meal Challenge is how our bloggers have really inspired me to cook, and so many dishes from the cookbook are perfect for spring and summer. Now as barbecue season rolls around, you can bet I will be making these salads and bringing them with me to summer barbecues and parties.

One of the salads on my to-make list is the Cantaloupe, Tomato, Goat Cheese, Cucumber and Onion Salad, made by Beth this week at Dining and Dishing, and paired with Patricia’s Ham and Cheese bread. Beth also shares the recipe for her personal favorite Tahini-Lemon-Yogurt Dressing, which can be used as dressings in many different types of salads, or even as a dipping sauce. 

I’d never thought about making a terrine at home–until Shelby at Diabetic Foodie cooked up Patricia’s Ricotta, Parmesan & Lemon Zest Terrine with Fresh Tomato Sauce. I’m dreaming of my next Sunday brunch already…

Hillary of Marche Dimanche and Shawnie of All Things Lovely have something in common—they have both lived in Nice, France, and rave about the Socca, a chickpea flour crepe, which is a specialty of the region. Hillary filled hers with smoked salmon and topped with warm hollandaise sauce…yum! Shawnie gives us some great tips on how to master Patricia’s socca recipe.
