Dressings for Spring Salads with Liz Nuttle

June 2, 2015 - Radio Kitchen - Dressings for Spring Salads with Liz Nuttle

These days, if you can't go out and find the makings for a summer salad, you may not have a pulse.  This is high season for delicious locally grown produce to show up in the markets.  And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Waterfront Kitchen would admit, the fixings are only half of the salad.  We need the dressing too.

So we asked Liz Nuttle, owner of EN Olivier, to swing by with some salad dressing advice.  EN Olivier is one of our favorite stores, with lots of great super premium olive oils and balsamic vinegars, and other gourmet items.

A lot of us are thinking light, and finding a suitable protein for the plate couldn't be easier.  So while we are composing brilliant variations on the theme of spring vegetables, we can dip into the Bay for suitable partners.

For fruit lovers, spring, in all its fullness, is a fabulous time to go shopping.  One of the real treats of the season are the berries that are quietly rolling into the market.  And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Waterfront Kitchen attests, there are lots of ways to enjoy fresh berries, and one of the best is to feature them in tarts or pies.

Big City Farms

May 5, 2015 - Radio Kitchen - Big City Farms
