Hooray, it’s salad season again! Time for crisp fresh greens. Vine-ripened tomatoes and summer squash to start showing up on a regular basis. We eat a lot of salads. I keep on the lookout for fresh ideas and new ingredients.

A lot of fellow food bloggers have used sweet, tart tamarind in amazing sounding dishes. When I saw some at my local store I knew it was time to try.
The tamarind pairs well with beef. I plan to give it a try in other beef dishes too. Of course I will share those with you!
