Apple and Gorgonzola Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Apple and Gorgonzola Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

So, let’s talk about salads. I really enjoy them. Or, at least, I think I do. I want to. But I get bored of them so quickly. Maybe that’s a me issue. Or, maybe it’s a salad issue. I vote salad issue. I’m sure [...]

Cherry-Tomato-and-Cucumber-Salad

Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad

I'm all alone in my household of four. No one else enjoys cucumbers.  Or cherry tomatoes. No one, but me. Sniff. Sometimes, I just have to celebrate my cucumber-and-cherry-tomato-loving-ways.

Edamame, Corn and Quinoa Salad

Caprese Salad with Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette

For last week's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), we got some beautiful heirloom tomatoes and fresh sweet basil.  Now, I don't know about you, but my mind goes two ways with these two fresh ingredients sitting on my counter: (1) Bruschetta or (2) Caprese Salad.  Since I also got some tasty organic grape tomatoes I could [...]

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

This Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing from Alton Brown is a recipe I've made many, many times.  As I've mentioned before, Alton has some wonderful recipes and this one is no exception. I really enjoy this salad because it combines vibrant flavors with different textures.  Well, that and because it's super yummy.  There's crumbled [...]

Chicken Caesar Salad
