Radicchio Wedge Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing and Walnut Crumble

Serves 4.


    Radicchio Wedge Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing and Walnut Crumble

    Wedge salads have come and gone, but we’re bringing them back in style, this time with a contemporary, colourful twist. Instead of cloying blue cheese dressing, a gently sweet honey mustard dressing drapes overtop boats of radicchio. A dukkah-inspired walnut crumble adds requisite crunch in lieu of croutons and bacon bits.

    • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sesame seeds

    • 1/2 cup (125 mL) plain yogurt

    For crumble, in mortar and pestle or food processor, crush or pulse walnuts, sesame, coriander, and pepper to a medium-fine grind (leave some texture). Add mixture to dry skillet and toast over medium heat, stirring almost constantly, for 4 to 6 minutes, until fragrant and medium-brown in colour. Use immediately, or cool and store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 months.


    For dressing, in medium bowl, whisk yogurt, lemon juice, tahini, mustard, honey, and salt.


    To serve, add 2 radicchio wedges to each serving plate, drizzle dressing on top, and sprinkle with crumble.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
