Episode 015: Market Salad, Fennel Chopping & Relationships

Today’s episode is all about relationships – the ones we form with the food we eat but also how we establish healthy relationships with the people we care about most like family, friends, and our significant others. We reached out to Erinn’s good friend, Yelena Galibov, who also happens to be a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She gave us great advice to share on all things relationships. We suggest a pen for some note-taking!

Market Salad Table Chat Show Podcast

We also share a delicious and oh-so-simple Market Salad from another good friend of the show, Leslie, from the blog Cardamom + Rye. On her blog, Leslie shares “purposeful recipes from my table to yours.” This recipe featured an assortment of fun ingredients like kale, quinoa, fennel, and beautiful strings of multi-colored carrots. Get the recipe below!

Leslie says,"I love this salad because it is hearty, fresh, and full of delicious late summer/early fall vegetables. The dressing is especially great."

Dressing
  1. 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  2. 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  3. 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (or to taste)
  4. 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  5. 2 tablespoons ripe avocado
  6. 1 teaspoon honey
  7. fresh pepper to taste
Salad
  1. 2 bunches kales, destemmed and torn into pieces 1 cup cooked quinoa
  2. 3-4 farmers' market carrots (multi-colored ones), cut in ribbons using a vegetable peeler
  3. 1 small bulb of fennel, transparently sliced
  4. 1 avocado, cut into small cubes
  5. 1/2 cup sliced almonds
Instructions
  1. Make the dressing by hand or using a food processor or blender. Puree all ingredients until combined. (I usually whisk it in the bottom of a big bowl and then add the kale to the bowl but it doesn't combined quite as well but still tastes good!)
  2. In a large bowl, massage the dressing into the kale until it starts to soften and is evenly covered with dressing. Add the quinoa, carrots, fennel, salt to taste, and toss. Add the avocado and almonds and toss gently one last time and serve! This salad is particularly flavorful the following day.

Episode 010: Mocktails, Mall Workers & Personalities

Today’s episode is a good one not only because we’re talking all about our personalities, but we also made some fruity mocktails! That’s right, we made mocktails, because no one needs to hear us drunk on actual cocktails on this show. These aren’t just just any old mocktails though, we made PERSONALITY mocktails. Rachel considers herself to be a fun and sparkling “Blackberry Nectarine Wow-Jito” and Erinn is a a sweet but spicy “Pear Ginger Quirk.” We know, quit our day jobs and start naming drinks full-time.

Table Chat Episode 10

As this was the personalities episode, we took the ever-popular and pretty accurate, Meyers Briggs test. Erinn is an INFP and Rachel is an INFJ. One letter difference! We also discussed the best and worst parts of our own personality traits, the personalities of our significant others (different again!), how that impacts our relationships, and what gets on our nerves. Hint: Pushy, free sample-giving mall workers.

Things we discussed during this episode:
