Karl’s Japanese Potato Salad with Avocado

I love Japanese potato salad, I cannot stop trying to gild the lily. The last time I made this dish it was still lacking something, I tossed out some ingredients and added others. Being a Californian, there is one addition that I knew would make this creamy salad better, avocado!

Karl’s Carrot and Apple Salad

Last week, I made Uyghur bierocks for dinner. I made some Uyghur carrot salad to go with it. However, I got a bit heavy handed with the Indian chili powder. My salad was so spicy not even Eilene—who has a high tolerance for such things—could eat more than a few bites.

Karl’s Bitter Herb Salad

When I proposed my usual Greek lamb for this Easter’s dinner, I was faced with a bit of a revolt. We finally settled on both ham and salmon as the main dishes. While the ham is obviously completely un-Kosher, the salmon somehow put me in a vague memory of the bitter herbs of a seder.  While I am not Jewish—and the meal I came up with has some decidedly non-Kosher dishes—a bitter herb salad seemed like a good side dish.

Karl’s Cajun Shrimp Salad

February 13th was Fat Tuesday and wife Jan asked for Louisiana food for dinner. She sent me several URLs for “Louisiana salads.” Some had ingredients that were very un-Louisianan. Others were very starchy—since I had decided on red beans and rice as my main dish, I wanted something a bit lighter.

Karl’s Moroccan Carrot Salad

I am making Moroccan chicken tajine and I wanted a vegetable dish. While many tajine recipes include the vegetables in the stew, I wanted something on the side. Wife, Jan really likes carrot salads.

Karl’s Hamachi-cado

I made a Japanese feast on Sunday and one of my dishes was hamachi shotsChef Jeffrey Stout’s signature recipe at The Sea by Alexander. Whenever, I make these taste treats I have a small piece of fish left over—in this case it was the dark fatty bits near the fishes center line. I usually eat this for lunch the next day.

Karl’s Curried Deviled Eggs with Chives for a Crowd

I frequently make some food for Jan’s Ethno Breakfast. For the last one I had made a dozen  curried deviled eggs, that apparently disappeared in the first few minutes of the event.  They went over so well that when one of Jan’s Chinese students came to dinner, I did a variation of those deviled eggs. Jan told me that she was expecting 30 ethnographers to show up to this month’s event. She asked me to make 24 dozen—48 half eggs—because they were so popular last time.

Karl’s Three Cabbage Coleslaw

This is for a weekday meal—simple broiled salmon and a half baked roll, so I usually do not go to all the effort that I put into my Sunday feasts. However, that does not mean that it should not taste good. “Quick” does not necessarily mean “bad.”

Karl’s Dill Cucumber and Mesclun Salad

The kids are still on their keto/Atkins low-carb diet. These diets are vegetable/protein forward. I am making brisket and a French onion soup  and I thought a salad of cucumbers and baby greens would go well as a green vegetable.

Karl’s Caribbean Slaw

Adapted from Grill it with Levi

The kids are feeling a bit toady after weeks of holiday eating and have decided to go on a keto/Atkins low-carb diet. These diets are vegetable/protein forward. Usually, I go with dishes where I can serve the starch on the side, for those who wish for more.
