Zucchini, Squash and Grape Tomato Salad with Basil Vinaigrette
This hearty salad is brimming with fresh produce that boasts a variety of colors, textures and flavors. Grape tomatoes burst with sweetness, zucchini and yellow squash add crunch and the fresh basil vinaigrette pops with flavor. The homemade dressing is lighter than traditional dressings thanks to canola oil while red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard add tang and body.
Shrimp Salad with Golden Raisin Vinaigrette
Shrimp, dried chilis, and coriander are classic to many a coastal south Indian meal. The yellow split peas, when used as a spice, as in this recipe's blend, is a hallmark of cooking the south Indian way. When the shrimp is pan seared with shallots (yet another "southie") and served over a bed of salad greens (never eaten in traditional Indian meals) that's drizzled with golden raisin (a component in many an Indian dessert, used here to offset the pungency from the dried red chilies in the shrimp) vinaigrette, the end result is nothing short of magic.
