Fresh Dill and Everything Nice
Dill is one of the most fragrant and flavourful herbs in the kitchen. It has a trademark subtle sweetness that can't be matched by any other herb. It is exceptionally popular in Western Canada, where we just can't seem to get enough of it. We put fresh dill to very good use in the Dill Chickpea Salad recipe. The base of the salad is a mix of couscous and greenhouse lettuce. This combination is exceptionally satisfying because the couscous is so light and easily sticks to the lettuce leaves when mixed with the red wine vinaigrette. The bulk of the salad is a combination of sliced cucumbers, pickled onion, crunchy radish slices, grape tomatoes, and crispy roasted chickpeas. The result is a stunningly crispy salad that is very satisfying.
The Secret: Shallot, Lemon, and Red Wine Vinegar
The ingredients in this recipe are tossed in a homemade red wine vinaigrette. Something about this recipe is the secret to the salad's success. It's a mix of the sweetness of agave syrup, the tartness of lemon juice, and the zest of fresh shallot. It creates a beautiful orange-hued dressing that is not only tasty, it's also beautiful. Knowing that we eat with our eyes makes this salad and dressing recipe all the more satisfying!
