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? 🙂

Onion and Radish Salad

When I was a kid, I never seen red radish at my local store. To me, radish daikon is long, thick white veggie that sometimes used as metaphorical expression for legs (in bad way, btw. It basically used as “hey your leg is as thick as daikon radish! So don’t even think when to use it especially for ladies! 😉 )

 

Now, I’m so glad red radish is easily available in my local store. This little veggie is so tasty and cute for red and white color, so I can use it as garnish, too!

 

If you put a little bitter onion and radish together and put ponzu sauce with sprinkle of bonito flake, you’ll say “wow, how come I didn’t try it sooner?”

For Healthy Blood Vessel~Onion Salad

This recipe is for onion lover specifically:)

Or, if you are huge meat lover and a little concerned with high blood pressure, this salad makes your blood vessel smooth and stay healthy even with high fat diet!

 

Some would say raw onion makes your mouth stink, but trust me, if you slice onion finely thin and soak them in cold water, it won’t. Rather than their spicy flavor remain on you, they wash out your mouth from oil like juicy steak or bbq. Just a small head of onion can make you healthy, so if you wanna stay healthy(I know everyone does!) try having it on the side of your dinner!
