Kachumber Salad Receipe

We decided to do a few Indian recipes for the next little while! Hubby has picked up a few delicious Indian recipes from Indian restaurant cookbooks and also from some Indians and Sri Lankans he knows in the industry. They are super delicious, lots of bright flavours, often spicy, and usually pretty easy to make (though sometimes with long cooking times). This is a side dish or salad that is popular across India with lost of regional variations. This is a pretty basic version of this salad, though some recipes include carrots and cabbage as well. After doing a little research, there is a similar dish called Kachumbari that is popular in the African Great Lakes region, though the version there tends to be a bit spicier, but has the same basic recipe.

The chili is technically optional in this dish, but we find that it adds a lot. If you don't have dried Thai bird chilis, you can use fresh, or a pinch of cayenne pepper. Fresh serrano or guajillo peppers would also make a nice addition. If you want it to be fiery, you can kick it up with habanero or scotch bonnet peppers!

CBC: Is Doug Ford still 'for the people' 1 year later? We asked some voters

On the campaign trail, and in government, Premier Doug Ford routinely mentions "the people" in his speeches.

When he won the Ontario election last year, he claimed his "victory belonged to the people," and vowed to run a "government that works for the people."

One year to the day after that win, some voters may be having their doubts.

"I don't think he's going down the right road, but time will tell," says Brian Morris, who lives London, Ont. and did not vote for the PCs. He's critical of Ford's cuts to education, and his efforts to promote "buck-a-beer."

After a busy legislative agenda, recent polls have shown support for the Ontario PCs dropping after the government's first budget introduced austerity measures that included cuts to public health and student assistance.

Creamy Smooth Tahini Dressing Recipe

Going back to salad town! This is an amazing vegetarian (and vegan if you leave out the feta cheese!) alternative to a Caesar dressing. It's creamy and rich and has a bit of acidic zing from the lemon juice. Hubby found that you could use tahini to emulsify oil in a dressing, so it makes almost a vegan mayonnaise without any eggs! We've dropped it over a lovely shredded radicchio and cabbage salad, and it's something we frequently eat when we're having something like a simple cheese-and-meats board for dinner.

Also, if you leave off the feta, you can garnish this with lots of different things. It's excellent with toasted walnuts, toasted pine nuts, or toasted sunflower seeds. It also goes particularly well with olives.
