    Master Vinaigrette

    This master recipe is the base for the dressings on the following four summertime salads. Tangy, bright, and perfectly sweet, this dressing tastes as good in a bowl of plain leafy greens as it does in our imaginative salads. This makes approximately 1 cup (250 mL) dressing, enough for 2 Tbsp (30 mL) per individual salad.

    Employ this dressing as a dip for raw veggies, drizzle onto grilled fish, toss with pasta, and more—the sky is the limit with this Master Vinaigrette!

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
