Autumn Field Greens with Spicy Pecans and Pomegranate Seeds

The spicy pecans are also delicious served as an hors d’oeuvre. To remove seeds from pomegranate, carefully cut fruit in half, and gently pick out seeds, discarding pith and membrane. This is a recipe from Martha Stewart Living Magazine.

Spicy Cole Slaw

The key to making this cole slaw is that you toss it just before serving, so the cabbage stay nice and crunchy. I like to break out of the box of serving cole slaw just for picnics and to use it as a condiment on sandwiches and burgers or crunchy, refreshing alternative to a green […]

Deviled Eggs on Sliced Heirloom Tomatoes

I make deviled eggs often at home; even when the refrigerator is next to empty, there’s always the makings for deviled eggs. This composed platter, with the eggs on sliced tomatoes, was a standard Sunday lunch item at my Granny Foster’s house when I was a child. The devilled eggs can be prepared through step […]

Cornbread Panzanella with Avocado

Panzanella is an Italian “bread salad” that is traditionally made with cubes of day-old rustic-style bread. At Foster’s Market, we use this concept as a starting point, but we make panzanella different every time. This version, using cornbread as a base, is one of the most unusual—and one of the most popular. I like it […]

Warm Sourdough Bread Salad with Chicken and Pine Nuts

Bread salad is a traditional Italian way of making use of a day-old chunk of bread. I added shredded cooked chicken to this and tossed it with a heap of greens to turn it into a meal. Dried currants and pine nuts are added together to many savory dishes in Sicilian cuisine. It’s a really […]

Beet, Carrot & Apple Salad

This mix of crisp vegetables is super fresh and colorful. For each color to stand out, layer ingredients in a serving bowl. Right before serving, drizzle with dressing and toss.

Ginger-Sesame Vinaigrette

This rich, nutty dressing has a hint of citrus and the zing of fresh ginger. Try it on salads, cold buckwheat noodles, and steamed vegetables, as well as on sandwiches and wraps, like the Thai Chicken Wrap.
