Could it look more healthy?!

QUINOA CORN EDAMAME SALAD It is no secret that I love quinoa and eat it every chance I get!  This salad is a re-make and a new favorite of mine – very light, summery, and fresh.  The original had barley, but quinoa is so…NOW!  I also cut the amount of corn in half, and added…

New Year…back on track…how about some protein?!

MY FAVORITE EGG SALAD Super simple…Plain Jane, no frills. This is the egg salad that I keep in the fridge to wrap in lettuce leaves or to eat with a spoon out of a bowl.  Nothing fancy.  You probably have a favorite way of making yours…this is mine. One secret that makes it super quick…

A little different – a lotta good

TUNA SALAD with EGG & CARROTS I have no idea what’s up with the neon carrots.   Just super healthy, I guess!  Anyway… Wrap this quick and flavorful salad in a crunchy lettuce leaf and grab a bag of your favorite Soy Chips for a fast and nutritious lunch. ~~~~   Two 6-ounce cans solid…

Chicken Salad with a touch of curry and lime…

CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD Never enough variations on this theme… This one is not spicy, just mellow and sorta sweet with the crispy almonds, and succulent grapes.  The flavors get more pronounced as it rests, so making it ahead is always nice. Wrapped up in some buttery lettuce leaves or on a whole grain roll for…

Autumn salad in gorgeous color…

  SWEET POTATO SALAD How pretty is that?!  And the beta-carotene practically screams at you, here! This would be great on your Holiday table…is good room temp or cold, travels well and is a great alternative to the starchier white potatoes. Flavored with toasted pecans, chewy, tangy cranberries, and lemon – it would be perfect…

Go to the Mediterranean for a change of pace…

GREEK-STYLE EGG SALAD I love egg salad – any shape and form!  My favorite way is simply with mayo, salt, pepper, and a little splenda (YES…just a pinch…brings out the flavors!) So, it’s hard for me to change when I like the status quo.  But this one sounded so good and since I no longer…

Chinese Cabbage Salad…Skinny-fied!

CHINESE CABBAGE SALAD Well, somebody had to do it…poor little thing was drowning in oil, salt and sugar. I kept all the same flavors, but reduced the oil by almost ALL (the original recipe called for 1 cup…AKKKK) and used a whole lot less salt. Still super crunchy and flavorful, but now lightly dressed instead…

Delicious deep freeze!

FROZEN FRUIT SALAD (Some of my photos go way back – before I knew what I was doing with a camera!  Disregard that…just know that this is much more gorgeous tasting than it looks!!) This is an old favorite that my mom used to make for special meals. She served it as a salad, but…

Pretty in Pink!

FLUFFY CRANBERRY SALAD Light, sweet-tart, and creamy…another way to enjoy those gorgeous cranberries! This salad has been on my Holiday tables for years and it’s always a hit. My mom made it one Thanksgiving and I fell in love.  She got it from her neighbor who had submitted it to their hometown cookbook – you…
