This Saturday, August 1, is Food Day Canada. It’s a chance to showcase Canadian foods, and say thanks to the all wonderful farmers who produce it for us. Celebrate by creating a meal using Canadian ingredients, like locally grown chicken. Here are a few ideas to get the party started.
If you’re on the go, try this make ahead salad. Chicken and Wild Rice Tabouleh is chock full of local wild rice, fresh veggies and cooked chicken. It’s perfect for a quick meal at home, or for a day trip to one of Manitoba’s great parks.
Food Day Canada is the brainchild of Anita Stewart, author, culinary activist and member of the Order of Canada. It began in 2003 as the World’s Largest Barbecue and evolved into Food Day Canada. Held every year on the Saturday of the August long weekend, Food Day Canada is a reminder to appreciate our plentiful, safe and nutritious Canadian food supply.
