This is a salad I dreamt up the other day after meeting two cool French guys in a Paris café. It combines baby spinach, red onion, pine nuts and strawberries, dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette, for a light starter with a bit of a bite. The guys, the founders of a start-up called Foodette, were looking for a bright salad for spring that they could use in their next basket of goodies and recipes for would-be everyday French chefs…

As it happens, their initiative and mine make a perfect couple. Foodette, based in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, was launched in November for people who want to cook without having to shop or think too hard about what to make for dinner. Clients may order online and stop by later to collect the ingredients and recipes for a full seasonal meal. An Everyday French Chef kind of meal. This project was the brainchild of Olivier Tangopoulos and Thibaut Lagorce, the two cool guys mentioned above. They get their recipes from a handful of bloggeuses (food bloggers who all happen to be women). I’m proud to be joining forces with them as of next week. If you’d like a sneak preview of their site, go to foodette.fr. And in the meantime, happy cooking!
Great news, Meg! This project (and salad) both sound delicious!
This is indeed a great flavor combination. I’ve been making it for years. It’s so healthy!
