This salad seems simple but the layers of crunchy vegetables, the heat from the fresno chile and the refreshing flavor of mint makes it complex. I’ve been making this non-stop since I discovered the recipe in Bon Appétit. The original recipe has cracked farro but I’m gluten free these days (not by choice, trust me) so I subbed rice.
1/2 cup cooked and cooled jasmine rice
1 large egg yolk
3 drained oil-packed anchovy fillets
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, peeled, divided
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 head of broccoli, stem peeled and trimmed, very thinly sliced lengthwise on a mandoline
1 Persian cucumber, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 Fresno chiles, thinly sliced
1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 cup mint leaves
5 radishes, thinly sliced
2 ounces young Pecorino, shaved
Blend egg yolk, anchovies, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, mustard, and 1 garlic clove in a blender to combine. With motor running, gradually stream in vegetable oil and 4 Tbsp. olive oil and blend until dressing is emulsified and creamy, then add oregano. Season dressing with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss broccoli and remaining 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. Add cucumber, chile, sun-dried tomatoes and rice. Drizzle with 1/4 cup of dressing and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper and add more dressing if desired. Add mint and toss again.

TravTac Bag $29.95– Dorky? Yes. Will the man in your life love it? Yes. My husband was given one by Dad as a Christmas gift to use while he’s fishing. My husband loves it so much he wants to carry it around DC. (um, no.) For the ultra prepared.
This year, I’ve decided to invest in renovating the bathrooms. In the guest bathroom, I’m going to retile. As you can see from the photo on the left, we have some nasty builder grade tan tile. I hate tan. It’s boring and bland. I know there’s people who think beige is the best thing that ever happened but not me. It gives me the shivers. I still love everything else about the bathroom but the tile has to go.
For the floors, I’ve chosen a 5×5 Carrera marble tile to match the vanity in the guest bathroom. For the shower, I’m going with your basic white subway tile. The tile guys are going to lay it in a cool pattern and I’m using a light grey grout. While the project won’t begin till sometime in July, I’m already envisioning the final results.

Rise Bakery, located at 2409 18th St, NW in Adams Morgan, is a gluten-free bakery. This is monumental news in my gluten free world. A couple of months ago, my husband popped by there and grabbed a few things: a bag of bagels, a loaf of bread, a banana nut muffin and a cinnamon roll. They were delicious and I was so exited. Good gluten free bread and pastries are hard to find. I had an appointment today in Adams […]
