There are lots of tabbouleh recipes in the world, but many give instructions that can lead to a sopping wet salad with bulgur that's too hard to eat. This one uses pre-salting steps to remove excess moisture from the tomatoes and parsley, then uses the water drained from the tomatoes to soak the bulgur until tender and flavorful. A hint of spices adds complexity and depth.

Cathal Armstrong serves this "boiling bacon," or brined pork belly, for Halloween, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it in March.

We've waxed rhapsodic about the clam pie at Franny's on more than one occasion. We've even covered the recipe before.

Cucumbers and radishes are the perfect, refreshing candidates for a salad that can improve while sitting in dressing overnight. The tangy, shallot vinaigrette I used as a marinade—just shallots, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and a big pinch of salt—is my go-to, and it never fails me.

My first Chimichurri sauce was a real revelation. I made it on a whim to go with a flank steak, but was unprepared for just how well this Argentinian parsley-based sauce complements beef. Since then, I've been making it with some regularity, and bringing this Chimichurri enlightenment to others.
The salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and olives is wonderful on its own, full of bright Mediterranean flavors with just the right amount of heat, but once you put a slice or two of quick-fried halloumi on top all bets are off—it's almost like a Greek salad gone wild. Dipped in flour spiked with smoked paprika, the cheese has a wonderful crust and a moist, salty center, making it into something that you could easily serve (minus the salad) as an hors d'oeuvre or classier version of mozzarella sticks.
This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
I rarely miss an opportunity for rack of lamb, and the herb and breadcrumb coating made this perfectly medium-rare rack exemplary. A masterpiece in my mind, but was it enough to coax a lamb lover out of my lamb-averse wife?
