“This might actually be my favourite grain salad ever. The combination of textures is phenomenal– definitely don’t skip the toasted almonds! It’s a little bit involved but if you multitask it comes together fairly quickly. I’ve made it several times now and will definitely continue to do so as long as I can get fresh sweet corn!” – Elinor

“I made these Spring rolls this weekend and they we fabulous. We don’t like too spicy so i left out the jalapenos and I substituted the Arugula with Baby Spinach. This was my first time using rice paper and it was so easy and I will definitely make again.” – Monika

“I just made these the other day and they are SO delicious! Exactly the flavor I was looking for and didn’t even know it. One bag of Trader Joe’s radishes works perfectly. Great on chicken salad, Caesar salad, or by themselves.
Thanks!” – Leah

“I have made this cake 3 times now. Once with apple, raspberry and rhubarb. Twice with strawberrys and rhubarb. It’s so simple. I have all the ingredients in my cupboard and it whips up in minutes so I can throw it together between preparing the main meal and surprise everyone. A great insight Kate to do the fruit separate. It means I can keep it for a few days and just top it as I like. The flavour is delicate and lovely. I have shared with many of my friends.” – Molly

“Kate, thanks for this recipe! A friend made it last night for a dinner party and I couldn’t get enough of it! I had her send me the link and I plan to buy the ingredients this weekend. I definitely need to keep some of the granola on hand for salads — I too am not a huge fan of croutons, they just don’t get me excited — but having the nutty crunch in this salad was exceptional!” – Beth
