Roasted Beet and Grapefruit Salad

salad

Clearly I could never be a food stylist. I kind of tried to artfully arrange slices of beets, avocado, and grapefruit, but then I sort of ruined it by chucking handfuls of walnuts and pomegranate seeds on top.  At least it’s healthy!   This salad is part of my continued [...]

Pineapple and Peanut Rice Salad

For the first time in over two months, I’m actually at work! Sort of… we have a two day workshop for teaching English Learners (which is at least half the school). I’m excited to hopefully learn some useful stuff for when I’m back in the classroom in a few [...]

Black Bean and Roasted Tomato Salad

I think this will be my go-to potluck dish for every one that I’m ever invited to for the rest of my life. Here’s why: 1. You only need need 5 things to make it (beans, a lemon, tomatoes, almonds, and feta) 2. It can sit out for awhile [...]

Wasabi Potato Salad

This week was pretty huge… Monday I ran the Boston marathon and today we found out.. She is measuring perfectly and was SUPER active… flipping around and kicking and punching like crazy. It was absolutely AMAZING to see, and we are so excited (even though I was convinced for the [...]

Barley and Asparagus Salad

I am spoiled. So spoiled. I pay a high price to live where I do, but with the ocean a few minutes away, a city full of amazing food, and fresh local produce pretty much year-round, I feel pretty lucky to call California home. At least, until a big [...]

Bulgur and White Bean Salad with Tarragon

Once again the weekend went by WAY too fast, but at least it was a good one and I don’t feel like I wasted a moment of it! Here’s a little re-cap (which I promise WILL tie in with this recipe). Saturday started VERY early at the National Science [...]

Salad with sweet potatoes and toasted almonds

Waaaay back in August I was in Kerikeri, New Zealand and I had an absolutely delicious salad that I promised I would try and recreate soon after I came home. I kind of forgot about it until I was looking at pictures from that trip the other day and [...]

Colorful Christmas Salad

I’m in Portland for a couple days, celebrating early Christmas with my family. (Yes, that is a U of O football ornament front and center. Every single person in our family was a Duck for at least a quarter and we have high hopes for the National Championship game). [...]

Cranberry Bulgur Salad

I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is, this was a dinner experiment that turned out to be a total win. Even though I spent all day thinking about a salad I could make with the whole wheat couscous I was sure I had [...]

My Favorite (spicy) Chopped Salad

This is one of those “throw whatever’s left in the fridge together and hope it’s edible” meals that I’ve been making pretty much weekly for at least a year. It never seemed like enough of a recipe to put on the blog, but since it’s reasonably healthy and is [...]
