Typo alert! Your first sentence spells Nancy’s last name Silverson (but it’s correct in the last paragraph). Love her books, haven’t tried this salad yet but have baked my way through her Breads From LaBrea Bakery book.
I love this salad! Next time I will try Nancy’s recipe for cooking dried chickpeas. The only thing I changed was to use less olive oil in the dressing. I like the dressing to be very tangy! Oh, and more peperoncini. Mahalo Tim!
Ooo. This cookbook keeps popping up on my Amazon suggested purchases list, and if this is the kind of food that’s included, it should definitely go on my wish list.
I’m also really bummed about Roger’s passing, but I’m also in awe at the sheer volume of work he has churned out, especially in the last few years. I’m going to miss his New Yorker cartoon caption submissions (he’d always tweet his entry) in addition to his always-fascinating insights into film, even if I didn’t agree with what he had to say.
I agree with you about Roger Ebert; we lost an icon, as well as Annette Funicello, it has been a sad week. On another note, thank you for the chopped salad recipe. I love chopped salads. I even have chopped salad scissors that make it easy to make one. I will definitely try this one!
