In 2011, I had the privilege of editing the fund-raising cookbook for the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation. Among others, my role was to choose and convince 10 Québec chefs to turn their restaurant specialties into healthier-than-thou versions, with the help of the Institute’s nutritionists. For a quick look at the book, its food and celebrated chefs, it’s here.
First recipe in the book honours went to Giovanni Apollo’s refreshing salad starter below that would also make a wonderful summer lunch. Enjoy.
