Salads! Our Top 10 of 2022

Am I the only one that vows to eat healthier every year? (Well in my case every Monday but I digresss). Here is a list of our top 10 Salad Posts of 2022 to help you to stay on track!

Trinidad Coleslaw1. Trinidad Coleslaw

“What makes Trinidad coleslaw different from regular coleslaw?”. Truthfully, I can’t really tell you, as coleslaw is definitely one of those dishes that is an ‘import’. However, one nuance that I enjoy, that I don’t think is common in all locales, is the addition of raisins.
east indian chickpea salad2. East Indian Chickpea Salad

This is a recipe whose origins have become lost to the sands of time (and disorganization), however it is fast, nutritious and never fails to please.
navy bean salad3. ‘Gub Gub’ Navy Bean Salad with Feta Cheese

Navy beans a.k.a ‘gub gub’ form the backdrop for this simple, filling salad.
grated carrot and raisin salad4. Grated Carrot & Raisin Salad

This salad is a nostalgic favourite of mine. From young I enjoyed the contrast in textures between the smooth creamy mayonnaise, and crunchy carrots… and the occasional burst of sweetness that the raisins provided? Heaven!
Ensalada Chuchu5. Ensalada Chu Chu

Chayotes, a member of the squash family, is called Chuchu in Brazil and christophene in Trinidad. Combined with onions, they are the main ingredients in this Brazilian traditional salad. Cucumbers may be substituted for the chayote.
salsa6. Sarina’s ‘Bang Bang’ Salsa

This salsa recipe went together so quickly and easily. And boy did it pack a punch. A punch of yum that is!
carrot ginger cumin salad7. Carrot, Ginger and Cumin Salad

The following is my take on a very popular Middle Eastern salad. The parsley and lemon juice give the carrots much needed brightness, while the cumin deepens all the flavours, creating an exotic side that complements most dishes
8. Ensalada Chilena

This simple tomato and onion salad is a customary accompaniment to meals in Chile. Its name echoes not only its popularity in that country, but also the fact that its main colors (red and white), mirror the colors of the Chilean flag.
julienned vegetables9. Carmen’s Julienned Green Beans & Carrots

One of my favorite vegetable sides dishes and one that my mom can’t make enough, as far as I am concerned. Julienned slivers of green beans and carrots are sauteed in olive oil with cloves of garlic over medium heat until soft and sweet.
10. Broccoli with Orange Sauce

A simple salad that comes together in no time, the vinaigrette gives it a deep unexpected flavour that will have everyone wondering what exactly is in it
