This was such a simple delicious salad, I wanted to share…it is definitely a salad I will be making again and again. As a matter of fact, I just requested more yellow beets in my next weekly organic veggie delivery. We have never had yellow beets before, and being the some what purest that I [...]
Recently, we had a very delicious, fresh coleslaw at one our local restaurants. They used fennel which I did not have on hand, however it would be a lovely addition to this coleslaw. A great summer salad to serve alongside any main dish.
1/2 a small – medium sized green cabbage
3 medium sized carrots
2 green onions
As I type this, (8:00 am in the morning) the temperature out side is 30 degrees Celsius/about 86 degrees Fahrenheit. It will only get hotter by 4:00 pm. In my neck of the woods that is hot, and it is not due to let up any time soon!
On a positive note, we have had the [...]

One of my favorite things about summer is all of the fresh produce available. I have a few rice salad recipes on my blog now – they are so versatile! With this wild rice salad you could use any fresh vegetables and herbs you like. This salad makes a great pot luck dish – just [...]
This was one scrumptious and nutritious salad. The Quinoa added a nice texture and flavor to regular Greek salad. Plus it was more filling. For people that can eat cous cous, that would be tasty as well.
I do not ever put peppers into my Greek salad – I prefer celery, but they would certainly work [...]
This might be my new favorite salad….so good! We have a deli downtown that makes a very good Thai Broccoli Salad, which I will often have for lunch when I am at work. One day, I decided to ask them for the recipe…thinking they probably would not give it to me, however, it never hurts [...]
Having leftover cooked chicken in the fridge can be a godsend on busy days. This salad makes such an easy delicious lunch, or dinner for that matter. With fresh spring greens, ripe avocados and fresh lime juice – a perfect match of ingredients.
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken – cut into cubes
1 large avocado cut into [...]
