Sensational Summer Salads

by Guest Columnist & KosherEye Friend Gloria Kobrin


Here are three unique salads that are perfect for summer entertaining. One Meat, one Dairy and one Pareve − something for everyone. There is no mayonnaise in any of these salads so they can stay on a summer buffet table with no fear of spoiling.  I hope you enjoy them.

The Sesame Beef Salad with Vegetables is a wonderful way to repurpose your Roast Beef or sliced steak from the night before. This is a salad full of vegetables and julienned meat in a wonderful spicy dressing.  It is light yet satisfying − the perfect summer lunch or dinner.

The Farro Salad is another fabulous buffet dish. I use a sweet mustard vinaigrette to flavor the Farro which works perfectly with the onions, olives, currants and herbs that are mixed in with it.
