Tomato Feta Pasta Salad

Share

If you like feta cheese, black olives, and like a really hearty pasta salad, this recipe is for you. I like all of the ingredients that went into it, and I found the salad to be delicious. It has a lot of flavor – more than your typical pasta salad. For dinner the other night, […]

Purslane Bean Salad

Share

OK, this should be my final purslane post for the summer. Even if my CSA continues to distribute it, I’ll make this salad again or one of other two recipes that I recently posted.

This salad has a surprising amount of flavor. I ate several servings and enjoyed every bite.

This salad takes a little time to […]

My brother came down from Boston to participate in the NYC Triathlon on Saturday and we traditionally host a pasta dinner for him and any of his friends that are around. Because we came in from Shelter Island to see the race, my mom volunteered to provide fresh pasta and sauce. All I had to […]

Shrimp and Snow Pea Salad

If you like shrimp and you’re in the mood for a light, refreshing summer dish, this is it. The flavors in this salad are bright, it has a lot of crunch and it’s very refreshing on a hot day. It’s heading up to almost 100 in NYC today and I wish we hadn’t eaten all […]

Avocado-Mango Salad

Share

This is a Senegalese salad recipe which is a perfect summer side dish. The savory avocado, parsley and jalapeno are a nice contrast to the sweet mango and orange. I love summer side dishes that are loaded with flavor and involve no cooking.

The directions say to let the salad sit for an hour before serving […]

Sweet Potato and Quinoa Salad

I had dinner with three friends from college the other night and two of them are staunch vegetarians. One is bordering on becoming vegan. She’s vegan for Lent, so we all met in Greenwich Village at a vegan restaurant called Blossom Cafe. I read the menu online before heading downtown and I have to say […]

Spinach Salad with Chicken and Apples

Share

I have been making this spinach salad for years – longer than I’ve been married actually. I have no idea where I found the recipe. I’m so happy to finally be posting it. I made it last night as a light dinner and we gobbled it up. Not the boys, of course. That said, they […]

Baby Spinach Salad

Found this recipe in a recent Rachael Ray magazine. I love pomegranate seeds and I also like salads with cheese, so I had to try it. It’s my new current favorite. It’s light, tasty and the pomegranate seeds add some nice flavor and color.

I bought the pomegranate seeds […]

Toasted Corn, Cherry Tomato, and Edamame Salad

Share

I made this salad a couple of weeks ago while on Shelter Island. At the time, I was cooking so many delicious new recipes that I found it difficult to post them all in a timely manner. Unfortunately summer corn is on its way out (at least in the Northeast) […]
