A lettuce salad is often pegged as ‘boring’ or ‘bland’ but this Cos and Green Bean Salad with Middle Eastern Yoghurt Dressing is anything but.
Our version of the Japanese Nagano Chicken was inspired from the abundant apples grown in the Nagano region. In 2013 I visited my daughter who was working on organic farms in the region. I was amazed at the inclusion of apples in everything from chocolate to curries. I just had to make my own version using traditional japanese spices and apples and no msg (any versions of this curry in Australia contain msg). Using apples adds a mild sweetness to the curry, particularly when sautéed with onions. This has become a family favorite which I’m delighted to share with you.
