Lately, I've been trying to make all my favorite meals into salad form. That includes fish tacos, steak, BLT sandwiches, and lox & cream cheese bagels. Not everything works. I don't think a mealoaf salad would go down very well. This weekend I set out to make another fave dinner: chicken fajitas. Tortillas are a… Continue reading Chicken Fajita Salad
While I was at Trader Joe's the other day, I found this little pre-packaged sandwich in their ready-to-eat section. It was turkey, cranberry and pecan salad with arugula on a wheat roll---and it was FANTASTIC. The only thing I didn't like: celery was on it. If you know me, you know celery is my archnemesis.… Continue reading Cranberry & Pecan Turkey Salad
A classic Italian salad beefed up to an entree. Marinate chicken with balsamic vinegar, basil and mustard and then grill. Toss in mozzarella pearls, cherry tomatoes and avocado for an added punch!

The pumpkin spice candles are burning. I'm digging jackets out of my closet. I'm eating hotter foods and thinking about soups, y'all. Soups. Summer will be out… Continue reading Roasted Broccoli Salad

I got suckered into a big display in the produce section: I got almost two pounds of fresh roasted green chiles for… Continue reading Steak Salad with Green Chile Chimichurri Dressing
Raw caulifower and I go way back. Wayyy back. I've always preferred veggie trays that included raw cauliflower. My grandma used to always make a raw cauliflower salad with ranch dressing and green olives (which sounds weird, but tastes INCREDIBLE). I love cauliflower just straight off the head and dipped in ranch---even dipped in nothing… Continue reading Cauliflower Antipasto
