tomato bean and feta salad

Tomato, Bean And Feta Salad

I adore tomato salads of any kind and make them often when tomatoes are in season. If the tomatoes are farm fresh, the flavor is so intoxicating, that very little even needs to be added flavor-wise to make a great side dish to just about any entrée. But toss some beans in and you turn […]

Some say this prominent vegetable may just hold the secret for keeping healthy in cooler months.  This simple roasted beet salad with pistachios, dressed with a punchy orange vinaigrette is a wonderful way to incorporate beets into your diet going forward. […]

chicken protein salad

Chopped Chicken Protein Salad

This is not a health blog, and not everything I eat is healthy. I can own that. Good health for me is all about moderation. I eat everything, but it’s balanced and I eat a lot of salads. I am a big believer in “eating the rainbow“. All those brightly colored vegetables offer amazing nutrients […]

Crab Louie salad

Crab Louie Salad

Crab Louie salad, (pronounced LOO-ey), known also as, “the king of salads“, is a well-known dish, most food historians agree, first began appearing on menus of finer West Coast restaurants, sometime between the turn of the 20th century and World War I. Dig a little deeper and you find the first printed recipe for the […]

cabbage and kale slaw

Cabbage And Kale Slaw With Walnut Vinaigrette

This cabbage and kale slaw is all about simple flavors I love, and can’t get enough of. Sadly, despite its run of fame, kale still gets a bit of a bad rap. But to be frank, I think that has to do with two things in particular: (1) cleaning it and (2) good flavor balance. […]

crispy chicken Cobb salad

Crispy Chicken Cobb Salad With Buttermilk Dressing

The Cobb salad is an American classic and one of the first salads I was introduced to as a kid. It was, and still remains, the perfect salad. A Cobb is a beautiful, bountiful salad representing a symphony of flavors and textures. Eating a Cobb salad is never a chore, but rather a culinary experience. […]

seared tuna

Seared Tuna Salad With Ginger Dressing

This simple recipe has a story to it. This seared tuna salad is a dish I ate almost nightly when I managed a restaurant in NYC years ago. It was my go-to meal of choice, not only because I’m a big tuna fan, but because it is incredibly easy (and fast) to make. Most importantly, […]

Kale winter salad

Kale Winter Salad

I’m a kale lover and I’m proud of it. Kale is one of the most versatile left greens out there. And if you tell me you’re a kale hater, my response will always be, you’re probably not preparing it correctly. This is my latest favorite, a kale winter salad and it’s a keeper. Simple and […]

baby greens with manchego

Baby Greens With Manchego And Quince Vinaigrette

Baby greens with manchego and quince vinaigrette, a lovely, simple salad with staying power. From the most basic to complex, for me, salads never get old. There are limitless combinations from basic to bold, and nothing is off-limits. This is a favorite elegant favorite of mine that hinges on the sweet-salty homemade quince vinaigrette that […]

frisée and poached egg salad

Frisée And Poached Egg Salad

I adore frisée. I love the taste, but truthfully, it’s the name that gets me. This is my frisée and poached egg salad, lightly dressed with a homemade mustard vinaigrette and it’s a staple in my home. This classic French country salad is one I could live on, especially in the summer. What most people […]

cauliflower and chickpea salad

Cauliflower Salad

This is one of my favorite easy and healthful salads; roasted cauliflower and chickpeas with honey mustard vinaigrette. This wonderful, flavorful cauliflower and chickpea salad is not my recipe, it’s from Half Baked Harvest. I have only lightly adapted the recipe, mainly reducing the heat factor, but the original recipe can be seen here. This […]

panzanella salad

Radicchio, Fennel and Olive Panzanella Salad

New favorite alert. This panzanella has got to be one of my all-time favorite new salads. And since it feels like Spring in Northern California today, I just had to post about it. Packed with some of my all-time favorites; radicchio, fennel, olives, cheese, and sourdough bread, this hardy, earthy salad goes together effortlessly in […]

chard and green bean salad

Chard And Green Bean Salad With Mustard Seeds

Dark, leafy green vegetables are among the most nutrient-dense foods, and let’s face it, we could all benefit from eating more of them. Some say kale is the “king of greens”, but Swiss chard is equally impressive in its wide array of nutritional benefits. Swiss chard is a leafy green belonging to the goosefoot family, which […]

butter lettuce salad with walnut dressing

Butter Lettuce And Watercress Salad With Creamy Walnut Dressing

Not all salads are created equal. Some are complex, with many competing flavors and others are simple and subtle. In the salad world, both are needed. This is a simple one; a lovely butter lettuce and watercress salad with a creamy walnut dressing. Now don’t misunderstand me, by “simple” I don’t mean boring, I mean […]

marinated mozzarella

Marinated Mozzarella And Tomatoes

Mozzarella is an Italian curd cheese made from water buffalo milk, not to be confused with North American buffalo or bison. The Italian Mediterranean buffalo breed was believed to have been introduced to Italy during the Roman times. Because Italian water buffalo are herded in just a few countries (mainly Italy and Bulgaria), most mozzarella you eat […]
