August 2010

We’re well supplied with greens at this time of year and there’s a fab combo dish at Rockpool Bar & Grill (66 Hunter St, Sydney, Ph 8078 1900). It’s a mix of braised cavolo nero, rapa and silverbeet with a decent hit of chilli and topped with fine tresses of parmesan.

But if you want your greens cold, try the simple cabbage salad there, also with parmesan and a dressing of lemon juice and olive oil. Salad leaves are in good supply, too. Try pale hearts of cos lettuce in the Caesar salad at Whitewater in Manly where they offer the high-protein option of a chicken and sometimes a salmon version.  There’s a good mixed salad at Blackwater also starring cos lettuce teamed with baby truss tomatoes, the only ones worth eating at this time of year, and Ligurian olives, cucumber and red onion.

Cauliflowers are still good and cheap and work a treat at Bondi’s Brown Sugar roasted with barramundi, spinach, chilli and almonds.
