Humm, what’s this? A seemingly random spice mix recipe from This Fox Kitchen?
When we visited the cemetery at Omaha Beach in Normandy France this past summer, both Mr Fox and I were moved to tears. It was remarkable how deeply it affected us.
All of our lives we’ve heard stories about World War II but standing in the American Cemetery among the more than 9000 white marble crosses that mark the graves of soldiers who died in battle on the beaches of Normandy. It was shocking. For us, it brings a whole new depth of meaning to Remembrance Day.
I bet you were thinking that because it’s almost wintertime, my 52 Salad Recipe series would go into hibernation. Well, I’m here today with Salad #19. So if that was your train of thought, switch directions and get yourself into the kitchen because you are going to want to make this Chicken and Apple Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing.
My New Roots is the first cookbook written by popular food blogger (www.mynewroots.org), holistic nutritionist, and whole-foods advocate Sarah Britton. This Cookbook is full of good-for-you seasonal plant-based recipes.

This salad is quick to fix and enjoy as an accompaniment to your evening meal, or take it to the office for a nice satisfying lunch. We found that Napa (or Chinese) Cabbage is a nice change from the usual lettuce greens. It’s refreshing and not as heavy as our more traditional red or green cabbages.
Over the past few months, we’ve had this Avocado and Grape Arugula Salad many times in this Fox Kitchen. It’s become a family favourite. At one gathering this past summer, my sister actually turned down dessert in favour of finishing up what was leftover of this salad (and she has a sweet tooth to rival my own).
