Ever since I made my Marinated Vegetable Salad – it seems to be the only kind of salad I want. With so much fresh produce still available – it’s the perfect end of the summer salad. They are so colorful and fresh tasting too.
This salad was made in the morning and refrigerated. I tossed the [...]
What a busy summer it has been, and early fall is proving to be not much different. Phew…I have had a number of posts to share, and somehow life has intervened.
Remember the post I did about the lovely lady whom I bought the garlic from? Then she gifted me with the most beautiful dried Oregano? [...]
This past week has been very busy for me at work. Usually I will pack a lunch with me, which I did this particular day. I ended up working an extra 3 hours this day which I had not anticipated, so I stopped by a deli to buy a vegetable salad. Dang….it was awful. Big [...]
Here is yet another fresh salad. During the spring and summer – we have salads of every kind almost every day. The Sugar Snap Peas will not be around much longer so we have been eating them in every salad we make.
Every once in a while I have a huge craving for shellfish. As my [...]
Oh how I live for summer! This is such a simple, beautiful, and tasty salad to have during the summer. Using yellow and red tomatoes gives this salad such vibrant color. The key to this salad is to marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator, then remove from the fridge to come to [...]
This is one of those salads that is great for a pot luck, or served for lunch or dinner or as a side dish. A hearty vegetarian dish that is fresh and delicious too. Originally I was going to make a vegetarian lettuce wrap, but ended up putting it all together – so good. I [...]
This recipe came about as a result of having leftovers. I can’t bear to throw away food. There were two egg yolks in the fridge, leftover Chimichurri Sauce, a lowly quarter of a cabbage – all needing to be used up. I always said I would never make homemade Mayonnaise or Aioli, because I always [...]
Wow. I think I might just live on this salad for the rest of my life. Hearty, flavorful, with lots of healthy goodness included.
I met someone recently, who abhors avocado, cilantro, and especially, feta cheese. Three of some of my favorite ingredients. To not like avocado? The other two, I can see – it seems [...]
This made a nice change to everyday tuna salad. Originally, I was going to make classic tuna melts for lunch, but then decided to forgo the bread and jazz up a salad instead. Although, it would also taste great made into a tuna melt too!
a small can of tuna drained – 184 grams
8 Kalamata [...]
This recipe was inspired from Jamie Oliver’s 30 minute meals. I did a couple of things different from his recipe – and mine took quite a bit longer to make – but roasting beets is so worth it! This made enough for two – so just increase amounts if you have more mouths to feed.
