Salad Days

linguini salad ala ally

curried rice salad

My dad used to refer to my high school and college years as my “salad days.” At the time, I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about, not realizing that the phrase came from Shakespeare’s play, Antony and Cleopatra. I thought my father was referring to my obsession with eating salad, a regular pattern that started in those years and continues to this day. So much for high school Brit Lit where I should have learned the reference to mean the inexperience and idealism that accompanies youth.

Grilled Vegetable Platter


Grilled Vegetables

Grilled veg.  One of the most simple and satisfying summer meals you can make.  There isn’t much you can’t grill in the way of fresh vegetables. It’s perfect for guests who may have any kind of food sensitivity.  You are able to avoid gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, etc… The vegetables taste great “as is” when they come off the grill or you may drizzle on a vinaigrette before serving. Here are some of the FTY offerings that made it onto my grill last night.
