Chickpea Salad with Zesty Lemon Dill Dressing

One day, I was shopping at some Asian grocery. They sell veggies, sauce, snacks that appear in Asian cuisine or very reasonable price, so hitting Asian grocery is one of my favorite things to do.

 

But there was one thing I didn’t understand. That is, they sell huge bunch of dills.

 

Dills? Really?

They appear on some mediterranean dish, but they sell it here, as Asian grocery?

 

I looked up on internet and the truth was they use fresh dill for Vietnamese, Laotian, Cambodian dish. I have been to some vietnamese restaurant but haven’t tried dish with dill, so someday I’d try it!

 

So far, I haven’t found some Laotian or Cambodian restaurant, so for now, I thank the Asian grocery and use the fresh dill for mediterranean food.

 

Dill’s herbal flavor is good with refreshing lemon juice, so just mix with some chickpeas and make salad was the right decision for sure! 🙂

Onion Salad with Salted Kelp and Sesame Oil

Hello everyone!

 

The veg I always stock on my kitchen is onion. I love it both as raw and cooked. While raw onion is spicy, crispy and good as a part of salad, cooked onion is sweet and the soft texture doesn’t disturb the taste of any dish.

 

I have shared some onion salad recipe, and here is the newest version!

Fresh veg salad become mild and refreshing flavor when they are mixed with sesame oil and salted kelp, so as same as other onion salad, this will be the best side dish for rich and juicy dish.

 

Onion has the great power to make your blood vessel healthy, so why don’t you just try it? 🙂

Miso Mayo Soba Salad

I have several recipe for soba, and here is another/new one for you to try!

 

When I start running this blog, I ate soba with the usual soup/soba and I’d never chosen other way to eat soba, which is made with some cooking wine, soy sauce, and bonito stock. But today, explore the new and best way to enjoy cooking and meal, and found this one.

 

Sauce is richer than my usual soup because it is using mayo and miso. Richer but still nice savory flavor, and it’s quick to cook!

 

As outside is getting hotter and hotter, I think this will be your the usual menu in this summer!

Hello everyone, how are you?

 

Well, today I’m taking day off for no-meat diet. I got nice fresh dill, so I must enjoy eating it. Lox sounds great enough, but my ref didn’t have a stock of smoke salmon but found tuna(don’t ask me why no-meat dieter’s pantry has one! :P) so dill flavored tuna salad wrap is the perfect meal!

 

Creamy mellow tuna with a hint of dill makes your meal time precious and that definitely make your day!
