Chef Jennifer Chandler Makes Salads At Easy Way Look Easy and Taste Delicious

Jackson and Jurni Williams sample "Strawberry Fields" salad Saturday at Easy Way.

Is there any more exuberant cheerleader for fresh home-made meals than Jennifer Chandler? Certainly not Saturday, when the Memphis chef and author held a salad-making demonstration at Easy Way on Mt. Moriah, wooing customers with her infectious enthusiasm and samples of her popular recipes.


Shoppers of all ages couldn’t resist the trio of salads Chandler prepared, including Panzanella, an adaptation of an Italian favorite that uses day-old bread, and my favorite, Crunchy Asian Slaw with peanut dressing. Click her for Chandler's recipes, available on her blog.


One of the things I like about Chandler’s cooking style is her flexibility. At Easy Way, she veered off her recipes a little because she spotted new ingredients at the store, such as snow peas, speckle pears and Hines roasted peanuts.


I always like the idea of tossing in fruit,” Chandler said. “It’s a great way to jazz up a salad.”


The recipes Chandler demonstrated are from her cookbook “Simply Salads” and showcase some of the options available for home cooks and at Cheffie’s, Chandler’s popular café in High Point Terrace.


Except to see more of Chandler this spring. Her new cookbook “Simply Grilling” will be published in mid-April, offering healthy and quick options for the family grill.

Cheffie’s Café, 483 High Point Terrace (901) 343-0488.
