August is the month to savour the end of summer and get ready to go back to school. Kids are dreading that fateful date and parents are doing the happy dance. It is still hot and steamy throughout most of the northern hemisphere and lunches even dinners are sometimes best served cool or at room temperature.

This recipe is a classic salad that is chock full of the four food groups - well, at least the “old four food groups”.

The old four food groups were:
(1) meats, poultry, fish, dry beans and peas, eggs, and nuts;
(2) dairy products, such as milk, cheese, and yogurt;
(3) grains; and
(4) fruits and vegetables.

The “new” four food groups are:
(1) The whole grain group - bread, pasta, breakfast cereal, rice dishes, corn, and other grains;
(2) The vegetable group - broccoli, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, potatoes, and cauliflower;
(3) The fruit group - apples, bananas, peaches, pears, and oranges, as well as exotic fruits, such as kiwis and carambola;
(4) The legume group - includes foods that come in a pod, such as beans, peas, lentils, soy, tofu, and tempeh;

You can always substitute the meat with vegetarian options. This is totally up to you.

Cobb Salad

Serves 4-6

I like to dress the salad in advance. Too many people drown the salad, obscuring any subtle taste you get with proper dressing. If you do dress the salad it is important to serve it immediately or the ingredients will wilt and get soggy. Everything can be prepared and arranged in advance. Toss the salad after presenting it to the table.

1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped (about 2 cups/450ml)
1 small head of chicory, chopped (about 1 cup/225ml)
1 heart of romaine, chopped (about 1 cup/225ml)
1 bunch watercress, leaves picked and chopped (about 1 cup/225ml)
2 beefsteak tomatoes, peeled seeded, diced*, divided in half
1 avocado, diced (sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning) divided in half
3 hard boiled eggs, diced, divided in half
8 pieces crispy bacon, diced
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced, divided in half
2 green onions, diced
¼ cup/2 ounces/60 grams crumbled bleu cheese
¼ cup lemon juice
½ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon/5ml dijon mustard
½ teaspoon/2ml sea salt
¼ teaspoon/1ml ground black pepper
1 loaf crusty French bread

In a large chilled bowl toss together the iceberg, chicory, romaine and watercress. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons/30ml dressing and season with half of the salt and pepper. Toss and taste for seasoning. Starting on one side of the tossed greens, make a thin row of the avocado, then of the tomato, chicken, bacon, repeating in the opposite order and ending with the bleu cheese. Sprinkle with the green onions. Drizzle with remaining dressing and season with salt and pepper. Serve with crusty French bread

* It will be easier to peel the tomatoes if you make an “x” in the skin on the bottom and drop them into simmering water for 60 seconds. After peeling, cut in half horizontally and gently squeeze over a bowl to remove the seeds.

This past month whilst working again with Chef Eliane Muskus we did a cooking class that included ‪#‎friedcourgetteflowers‬. This are light and airy with a crispy batter. You can stuff them with a mousse or even seasoned ricotta cheese or have them plain with a lovely tomato sauce like we did. ‪#‎laservietteblanche‬ ‪#‎YaDaChef‬ ‪#‎cookingclass‬ ‪#‎freelancechef‬ ‪#‎villachef‬ ‪#‎superyachtchef‬ ‪#‎mediterraneancooking‬ www.yadachef.com

Only Chef Da was working in the kitchen for clients yesterday. So Ya (I) decided he'd make a nice meal. As you all know Saturday Night is Pizza night. There was leftover chicken in the fridge. Greek Chicken Pizza was the result. It had a feta/tzatziki base with roasted chicken and spicy pickled peppers. www.yadachef.com ‪#‎SaturdayNightisPizzaNight‬ ‪#‎GreekPizza‬ ‪#‎mediterraneanfood‬ ‪#‎yachtchef‬ ‪#‎holidaychef‬ ‪#‎foodporn‬ ‪#‎SexyFood‬
