While Celia brought back an ample supply of Portuguese sausage from Hawaii last week, I brought back just a box of plump macadamia nuts from Clara Confections for my cocktail-hour snack. But yesterday, while looking for walnut oil at Dean & Deluca, I found some macadamia nut oil (Brookfarm; $13) from Australia instead. This inspired me to whip up a fresh salad from the superb mesclun greens I had picked up at Union Square that morning. I dressed my simple salad with the nut oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice, seasoned with a dash of salt and pepper. Then I crushed some macadamia nuts and tossed them with the salad. The nuts have a sweetness to them that I can only express in Hawaiian terms, onolicious!

P.S. I did end up getting some of Celia‚Äôs Portuguese sausage, and it inspired my own interpretation of a fried rice with broccoli rabe and P. sausage — equally satisfying my nostalgia for the foods we grew up on in Hawaii.
