Pickled Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers are at the height of their season, and this refreshing salad is a delicious way to enjoy them.  It’s ideal served with an Asian meal or alongside a spicy dish, or even as part of a buffet. We serve it our Indonesian Banquet Cooking Class, and it matches perfectly with Chicken Satays and Peanut Sauce.

Panzanella Salad of Mixed Tomatoes

With tomatoes in abundance right now, it’s the perfect time to make this Tuscan salad of bread and tomatoes.  We make this in our Italian Long Lunch cooking class when tomatoes are at the height of their season, and it is always a winner.  There are a number of variations where ingredients such as onion or anchovies are added, but I like to make it simplistically with just the additional of fresh basil.  The success of this salad relies on the quality and variety of the tomatoes, so choose a selection of different types and colours. And like all Italian cooking, always use quality ingredients including good vinegar, the best extra virgin olive oil you can afford and fresh garlic and basil. As well as being utterly delicious, this salad is also a great way to use up stale bread (nothing is wasted in the Italian kitchen).

Christmas Salad of Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes

Here at Noosa Foodie we are big fans of cooking and eating seasonally and locally, and this salad fits the bill big time at this time of the year. Local tomatoes are amazing at this time of the year (I grow my own), as is the local asparagus which I buy from the Noosa Farmers Market.

Santa Fe Salad

The barbeque season has well and truly kicked off, with temperatures soaring well into the 30’s already in Noosa. Barbequing is a way of life here, and while meat often plays the starring role, I like to ensure that there is a diverse selection of salads served for the non-carnivores. This is a salad I created recently, which uses barbequed corn, the only way to prepare corn in my humble opinion! It’s a pretty, colourful and satisfying salad and goes beautifully with barbequed chicken or salmon.
