Chopped Veggie Salad

Share

Spring is finally in the air in NYC, and this is a perfect salad for the season. It’s full of lots of fresh, raw vegetables. It reminds me a bit of a cole slaw, in chopped form. The original recipe called for 6 slices of bacon, chopped and stirred into the salad. I left that […]

Chickpea of the Sea Sandwich

Share

This is like a vegetarian tuna salad sandwich, and it’s just about as quick to make as tuna salad is. It doesn’t exactly taste like tuna, but it definitely holds together like tuna salad, and it’s nice and tangy because of the vinegar in it. With all of the news about mercury in tuna and […]

Curried Chicken Salad

I made this salad for a picnic recently and boy is it good.   It’s another Ina Garten recipe.   Have I mentioned that she’s one of my favorites?   Other than being a little heavy-handed with the salt, her recipes are very straightforward and delicious.

The original recipe calls for raisins, but I can’t stand raisins, especially […]

I first had this salad at my nephew Oliver’s First Communion party.  My sister Gail made it and it was delicious – so good that I asked to take some leftovers home.   Last week we had a picnic in Central Park with some friends as we listened to the Philharmonic perform an outdoor concert on […]
