Spring Quinoa Salad

I had my besties over for brunch this past weekend, and I was so happy with my menu planning and excited to write about it here! My friend Aoife has a few restrictions (no gluten, dairy or eggs) but nothing that prevented me from whipping up a totally delicious brunch (in my humble opinion!). While […]

September 14, 2016 Salads

This salad was stalking me all summer. First up, my Mom and I split a delicious salad (at Boston Pizza of all places), that had arugula, pesto, peaches, beets, goat cheese and candied pecans. Yes please! This started the obsession. Then, Annie posted something very similar on her site with many of the same ingredients. […]

Strawberry & Goat Cheese Fritter Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad

For a long time I have had a very real, very negative reaction to strawberries and goat cheese in salad. This stems, no doubt, from my aversion to Milestone’s, which I have explained at length in the past. They had* a salad with this combination on the menu in the early-mid aughts, when I ate […]

Toasted Quinoa Salad with Cumin-Lime Dressing

August 23, 2011 Gluten-Free

I am a huge tomato snob. There’s nothing worse to me than pale orange, mealy, out-of-season tomatoes; the kind you see at Subway or Extreme Pita, or every grocery store between October-July. I try to avoid them as much as possible.

Spicy Chickpea Salad + Corn and Black Bean Salad

July 28, 2011 Gluten-Free

  When the Radonsos came over for lunch last month, I made these super quick, fresh and delicious salads. This spicy chickpea salad doesn’t even require any cooking, just a bit of chopping and making a mess and you’re done. It’s a great little dish to bring to a picnic or backyard barbecue.

Butternut Squash & Chickpea Salad

Updated with a new picture November 2, 2014 Here’s my first Elimination Challenge Dinner! I have wanted to try this for the longest time, after Nicole made it and raved about it last year. I was able to make the recipe as is, without any substitutions, and it was absolutely amazing. You roast diced butternut […]
