The cabbagy flavor of these soft-leaved sprouts pair perfectly with chewy, salty bacon. Easy to make and easy to eat!

After discovering this interesting combination of flavors at Mario Batali’s Otto Restaurant in Manhattan, I promptly tried to recreate it at home. This cooled pea salad is a perfect side dish for a summer meal. Fresh peas are highly recommended but frozen will do the trick too.

White pepper is not only lighter in color, but also milder in flavor than black pepper and is something you should definitely experiment with. This recipe calls for white pepper and two kinds of vinegar but it will still taste delicious if you have to use regular black pepper and only one kind of vinegar. This salad is perfect for packing up and eating at the office or on a picnic. Bring a little Italian feast with you wherever you go.

My dad recently sent me a huge bunch of walnuts, almonds and cashews in the mail. I usually snack on them at the office but I got to thinking about other ways I could use them. Salads, sauces and toppings are a few options, but glazing them with powerful spices makes for a great cocktail party treat! If you don’t have cocktail parties, just serve these when your friends come over for beers. If you don’t like spicy things, just leave out the red pepper flakes and the Tabasco.
