Nina's Favorite, Veggie Chinese Salad!!

Nina Verklas

Hi Everyone,

  I hope the New Year is treating you well.  I know everyone is on their extreme diets trying to loose weight to only end up feeling like they can't enjoy their food.  This is one of my favorite salads, I remember my Aunt Jen Jen making this for us kids, and especially me, while she baby sat us kids.  Here is the recipe below for the Vegetarian Chinese Salad.

2 or More Heads of Romaine Lettuce

2 Cups Red Cabbage

2 Cups Snap Peas

1 Cup Cucumber

1 Cup Carrots

2 Table Spoons Sesame Seeds

2 Cups Mandarin Oranges

2 Table Spoons Almonds

2 Cups Crispy Noodles

2 Cups Asian Vinaigrette

 

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, mix and serve.

If you enjoyed this simple recipe let me know what you think and what you'd like for me to share next in the comments below.

Viva Italia

Of course my first food post would be something Italian, even dishes I have never made before...  For my first food styling attempt I started to realize I was way over my head, but willingly accepted the challenge to create a seafood pasta dish and stuffed calamari.  Here is a food story in collaboration with my favorite food photographer Ryan Blanski.
Ingredients 1⁄2 cup plus 2 tbsp. olive oil, 1⁄4 tsp. dried oregano, 1 clove garlic, finely chopped, 1⁄4 white onion, 4 cleaned calamari, 1 cup bread crumbs, 1 cup finely grated pecorino, 3 tbsp. finely chopped parsley, 2 tbsp. finely chopped oregano, Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
