Strawberry & Arugula Salad

The local strawberries are just coming into season here, and so I’ve got a fridge full of them!  I’m saving a punnet for a strawberry/rhubarb tart, but I thought I’d try throw some into a salad too. Along with some leftover pickled onions (from a chorizo taco salad I made last week) and a walnut […]

Pan-Seared Sea Scallops with Baby Arugula Salad

I’ve been having such an adventure trying out different meats and seafood over the last few weeks, but to be honest, I haven’t been in the kitchen much! Mr. KitchenOperas had a birthday at the end of May, and so we ate out a fair bit while we were celebrating.  And all of my friends […]

Halloumi, Pickled Beet & Arugula Salad

Arugula Salad with Pickled Red Onions in a Lemony Vinaigrette

This summer I was fortunate to eat again at my favourite west-coast spot: Chez Panisse. As part of my decadent meal, I had a gorgeous salad: “Willey Farms Eggplant & Rocket Salad with Red Onions & Mint” It was so good, I’ve been eating nothing but lemony arugula salads at home.  And then Solveig introduced […]

White Bean, Parsley & Chive Croquettes with Arugula & Horseradish Sauce

So by now (if you are a regular Kitchen Operas reader) you probably know all about my friend Louise. You know, my foodie friend who made macarons with me, who introduced me to turning squash into “jam”, who convinced me I could poach an egg, who has mulberry and quince trees (!), who likes all […]
