Pizza Salad with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

In an effort to eat better, one of things I’ve been trying to do is eat a salad whenever I eat pizza. Easier said than done, since most pizza shops have terrible salad. So that means I either have to make my own — c’mon — or find a place that has good salad. It’s a struggle [...]

Sunshine Quinoa Salad

I’m currently sitting on my couch wrapped in a cozy blanket and dreaming of sunshine. I guess I’ll have to settle for a quinoa salad instead 😐 Salads are a favorite of mine. Usually my salad has some type of leafy green, but I’m a fan of grain salads as well. Quiona isn’t technically a [...]

Winter Cabbage Salad with Apples and Cranberries

This year has been a rough one all over, but especially when it comes to food. I love food — making it, eating it, sharing it. The sharing it part has kind of gone out the window (although I have started a new trend of dropping off surprise homemade desserts at friends’ houses, so that’s fun) [...]

Crunchy Brussels Sprout Salad

I was always a Brussels sprout hater for as long as I can remember. Then one day I realized there are more ways to eat Brussels sprouts than just steamed and stinky. Like this Brussels sprout salad.

Stone Fruit Halloumi Salad with Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette

Stone fruit season is in full swing here. Of course that means there are plenty of pies, crisps, and desserts to go round, but sometimes there is more to life than dessert. Like salad. The kind topped with juicy, in season peaches, cherries, plums, or whatever you like or have. In this case, I had [...]

Blackened Shrimp Avocado Caesar Salad

After a holiday weekend, I always feel like I need a salad. Even if it’s not one chock full of veggies, just a big bowl of greens is enough to help feel better after indulging all weekend long. Since my fridge was kinda bare and I didn’t really want to head to the store, so [...]

Roasted Eggplant Salad with Feta and Quinoa

I’ve been going through old recipes recently to get some inspiration lately, and in doing so I’ve made a few old favorites that I haven’t thought about in a while. Like this one. This is a simple dish that is healthy and filling, and it utilizes one of my favorite veggies: eggplant. I’m always amazed [...]

Barbecue Salmon Salad with Buttermilk Jalapeno Ranch

I never liked ranch dressing until I made it myself. It always tasted salty and overly processed, and sometimes has a gluey texture that’s anything but creamy. I could never understand why people liked it so much. Then I made it myself, and it’s one of my favorites. I’ll even order it out sometimes, but [...]

Super Green Thai Salad

I love a good salad, and in an ideal world, I would eat at least one salad everyday. Try as I might, I don’t, but it’s always a goal of mine. This salad, is especially nutritious, as it’s loaded with several types of greens, a few other veggies and herbs, and some peanuts for crunch. [...]
