Crispy Chicken and Apple Salad

Share

This is definitely a meal you can make on a busy weeknight. Cooking the chicken is what takes the longest, and you can get that done pretty quickly, especially if your chicken breasts are thin. I actually recommend that you buy thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts for this recipe, or if you don’t buy those, […]

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Share

I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and  that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, […]

Garbanzo Bean and Zucchini Salad

Share

But for a little chopping, this is a very simple salad to make. It’s light and fresh and a perfect addition to a summer meal. The dressing is very light, but tasty. I made the mistake of serving this with a shrimp orzo dish that had a lot of feta in it, so this salad […]

Grilled Corn and Orzo Salad with Basil

Share

I’ve mentioned this before – I LOVE quick and easy side dishes made with fresh ingredients. It’s corn season here in the Northeast. It’s so sweet right now that sometimes I add it to recipes raw. This time, I grilled the corn, without the husks, so it got slightly charred. It added some nice flavor […]

Tomato Feta Pasta Salad

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

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 […]

“Use a Spoon” Chopped Salad

Share

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

Share

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 […]

Tzatziki Potato Salad

Share

I love a good potato salad in the summer. I also love trying new recipes, so this tzatziki potato salad was the perfect combination.

Tzatziki is a Greek/Turkish sauce that’s made from strained yogurt (aka Greek yogurt) and served as an accompaniment to something else or with bread. It’s also served as a sauce with gyros […]
