Today, I am sharing with you a beautiful and delicious recipe excerpted from Marie Asselin’s new book, Simply Citrus.
Marie Asselin is the talented Quebec-based author of the blog Food Nouveau, which documents her cooking and baking adventures. She is also a food stylist, recipe translator, and culinary teacher — a “slasher” after my own heart. I have been following her, especially on Instagram, for a while, and the simplicity and freshness of her food always resonates with me.

Among the many cookbooks that land on my desk, this one stole my heart immediately. The lovable trim size, the sunny color palette, the inspired dishes featured using every possible kind of citrus… I loved everything about it, and tagged just about every page. I mean, don’t we all need more Roasted Beet, Kumquat and Mozzarella Salads? And Buddha Bowls with Crispy Tofu, Coconut Quinoa, and Sweet Mandarin? And Orange Blossom Zabagliones with Strawberries? I know I do.
I asked for permission to share one of these winning recipes with you, a Kale, Cilantro, and Chorizo tabbouleh I have made a few times with great success for an easy and vibrant weeknight dinner, with leftovers to bring to my office for lunch. It is the perfect opportunity to try her formula for Everyday Citrus Dressing, which is different from mine, and offers a complex balance of tang and velvet.

Of course, if you’re a vegetarian, you can easily swap out the chorizo for diced smoked tofu. If you eat a grain- or gluten-free diet, you could use cauliflower “rice” in place of the couscous. And if you don’t do dairy, a scoop of store-bought or homemade cashew “cheese” would replace the feta cheese nicely.
