Carolina Gold Rice Salad from 'Around the Southern Table'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

This salad of white rice, raisins, pine nuts, and scallions from Rebecca Lang's Around the Southern Table may look a bit one-dimensional at first, but Lang's version is more than just a simple grain salad. The potent mixture of a lemon's zest and its juice whisked together with a touch of orange juice and a drizzle of sweet and tangy white balsamic soaks effortlessly into the hot rice, plumps the raisins, and tempers the bite of the scallions.

Robb Walsh's Buttermilk Dressing

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

In Texas, the ubiquitous chicken fried steak is often plated with fries and a buttermilk ranch dressed salad on the same plate, making the ranch the dip of choice for the fries. Robb Walsh, author of Texas Eats, speculates that the popularity of ranch as a dip comes from Texas's cowboy culture, where those gruff dudes used the creamy-tangy dressing to compliment everything from fries to onion rings and even chicken fried steak. And now we know that we have Texas to thank for those little tubs of ranch meant for pizza crust dippage. More

Endive, Apple, and Farmhouse Cheddar Salad with Country Ham and Wheat Beer Dressing

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

There is much to love about this Endive, Apple, and Farmhouse Cheddar Salad with Country Ham and Wheat Beer Dressing from Andrew Carmellini's American Flavor: sharp, tangy cheddar, crisp fall apples, creamy, citrusy wheat beer, and salty slices of country ham all balanced out with leaves of bitter endive and radicchio. All you need to do for a perfect winter lunch is add a slice or two of crusty bread and pour the rest of the beer into a glass. More

The Secret Ingredient (Dijon Mustard): Simple Vinaigrette

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky 11 comments

You can be as fancy as you like in the kitchen, but if you don't know the basics, you'll never get anywhere. And one basic I have been working on for a long time is the perfect basic vinaigrette. I've written a million and one times about the restaurant Le Relais de l'Entrecôte in Paris, which now has an outpost (as yet untested by me!) in New York. It's a steak frites place, but they bring you this amazing green salad with mustard dressing and walnuts to start, and it was that dressing I was dying to emulate. More

Chickpea Salad with Cumin Vinaigrette

Serious Eats Blake Royer 7 comments

The real story here is the cumin vinaigrette which is laced into every bite of this salad. It's a heady combination of toasted cumin seeds, black pepper, and oregano, all smashed together with garlic, good olive oil and red wine vinegar. It's a little bit Mediterranean, a little bit Middle Eastern, and it does wondrous things to the chickpeas. More

Dinner Tonight: Greenmarket Field Greens with Malt Vinegar

Serious Eats Blake Royer 3 comments

I learned two new things this week while trying to recreate a salad I'd eaten at the Simon Pearce glass-blowing factory's restaurant in Vermon. There wasn't anything too special about it—just field greens—but something about the vinaigrette was unlike anything I'd tasted before. More
