The South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors resumed for the fall season. We are glad to see Paul and Frank back in the kitchen after they recovered from some health issues. We also like to welcome Keiko and Chris who are new to the kitchen.
As usual, Charlene and Stella prepared a few delicious and healthy recipes for the seniors to participate in making and enjoying them for lunch. The first recipe is called Salade Nicoise from Charlene. This recipe serves 2 but we trippled it in the seniors’ kitchen.
The Salade Nicoise is a wonderfully balanced meal, offering vegetables, starches, and proteins all on one plate. This salad gets its name from a French seaside city of Nice where tuna is traditionally features in this salad.
Sydney and Frank made this Salade Nicoise.
