Smoked Salmon Salad with Dill Caper Dressing

Easter is around the corner and this salad will make an excellent dish to serve for breakfast, lunch or brunch.  It’s served on a large platter so that the veggies are beautifully spread out and the smoked salmon is neatly stacked in the center for each person to serve to their liking. Think of it […]

Just combine your favorite mixed greens; I used a variety of artisan greens, spinach and fresh basil for an aromatic taste; with sliced red onion, cucumber and quartered strawberries (fraises are a good […]

Holiday Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

I’m most excited about how easy this cranberry vinaigrette is to make. Who would think that tart, raw cranberries would taste so good after a quick blend in a food processor? I used a mixture of sweet, tangy and pungent flavors; balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard and fresh squeezed orange juice to name a few; none […]

Grilled Fig and Eggplant Salad with Balsamic Honey Vinaigrette

I was out of town for the first few weeks of September and was in a slight panic that I was going to miss out on the ripening black figs on my tree. Green figs are good but black figs are my weakness. They are little candy tasting delights. Have you ever picked a ripened […]

Butternut Squash, Cranberry and Walnut Orzo Salad

Each year I look forward to the harvest of my butternut squash patch. Waiting for the little peanut shape fruit to grow on the vine and ripen into the amazingly sweet buttery taste of heaven. Straight from the earth and into my kitchen I prepare the squash in many delicious ways. Roasted, sautéed, pureed, mashed into […]

Cucumber Salad

Crunchy, juicy and sour. When I crave this combination I turn to cucumber salad, a Middle Eastern staple dish that I grew up eating. My mom would frequently make a large bowl that wouldn’t last very long at the dinner table. One serving, two servings, three servings and…”yes, more please”. The best part was drinking […]

Eggplant Salad Platter

Time to use summer fruits and veggies! I love and grow several eggplant varieties. This recipe requires Chinese Eggplant. Some grocery stores may have a different name for this type of eggplant. Look for the medium sized, narrow ones that are almost black in color. I serve this salad on a platter because it makes […]
