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. And sneak in things like this Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad. Even if I'm the only one who eats it, it's still darn tasty. So there. [...]

Cold-Lentil-Salad-1

Cold Lentil Salad

Today, I'd like to dedicate some time to the lentil. Yes, the lentil. Is it just me, or does it seem the lentil often gets left out? It certainly does in my house.  When I cook beans, I'll typically use pinto beans, soy beans, black beans, garbanzo beans (chickpeas) or some other variety, but not [...]

Cucumber Salad Recipe

I told you I really wanted some Cucumber Salad, didn't I?  Well, here it is!  Hooray! In my last post on Salmon Teriyaki, I talked about how much I love a good cucumber salad when I go out for Japanese food. But, wait...  Why must I go out to get this tasty little dish when [...]

Beet Salad

Beet Salad

Recipe Title Alternatives: Baby Beet Salad, Fresh Beet Salad, Feta and Beet Salad with Shallot and Orange Vinaigrette, Feta and Beet Salad... I think you get the point.  "Beet Salad" just kinda sums it up. For four weeks straight, our CSA included a (deceptively) small brown bag full of baby beets.  Did I mention this [...]

Caprese 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 [...]
