This inspired take on a classic farmer’s market salad marries fishy Japanese furikake seasoning and mouth-puckering salted plum vinaigrette with cooling cucumber and basil. You’ll love the umami bomb of this colorful, summery appetizer.
This decadent, creative dish has already stolen the hearts of the Washington Post. The toasted breakfast muffins are served with a pot of olive oil jam, yogurt, and salami on the side. Use the wooden spoon provided to butter your muffin with the Mediterranean-flavored combination. Warning: you might end up licking the spoon.
This smoky grilled fish comes with the skin perfectly crisped on the outside and is served on a bed of egg-laden avocado sauce. Need more? There’s also a curtido, a Salvadoran fermented cabbage salad that’s a close cousin of kimchi or sauerkraut.
This light dish combines two unexpected flavors: a light, tangy yogurt sauce and fresh, citrus-laced Hamachi crudo. This divine juxtaposition of flavors is a definite must-try. Pair with a cooling beer from the lengthy drinks menu.
Enjoy Hazel’s innovative take on a classic American barbecue meal. The mouthwateringly good sweetness of the ribs is perfectly offset by the earthy peanuts and citrus and cilantro topping.
