Whole Foods Sonoma Chicken Salad

This (recipe here) is VERY easy to throw together with leftover or even store-bought rotisserie chicken and is becoming one of our favorite recipes. Easy to keep on hand for eating “as is” or serving over greens or on a sandwich.

New Potato Salad

This potato salad (recipe here) is one from Ina Garten. Every single one of her recipes that I’ve ever made has turned out beautifully and was delicious; that chick knows her stuff! I made this batch with Yukon Gold potatoes, because that’s what I had on hand today, but it really is better with new […]

Blueberry Farro Salad

Recipe here. Yum.  Definitely not for everyone, but if you LOVE blueberries and you LOVE Indian flavors, as my vegetarian daughter does, you will love this salad.  When I saw this recipe, I knew it had her name on it.

Puy Lentil Galettes

Recipe here. Yum.  Loved these.  A definite make-again.  I acknowledge that the way my family (especially my daughter and I) feels about lentils may not be the norm, but we love them and can’t get enough.  They are delicious (especially the French du Puy variety) and peppery and filling and wholesome and healthy and hearty.  […]

Awesome Salad (Arugula, Roasted Tomato, Gigante Bean, Sauteed Zucchini and Arugula)

Yum Yum Yum. This is a concoction inspired by a salad that I had once at the Nordstrom Cafe. Basically, just layer slow-roasted tomatoes (I made huge batches of these and keep them in ziploc bags in the freezer – they thaw in seconds and are great in salads, pastas, on bruschetta, etc.), sauteed zucchini, […]

Warm Farro Salad with Braised Radishes

Recipe here. This was quite delicious.  Unusual, and not like anything I’ve had before, but light and very flavorful.  The braised radishes were pleasantly both sweet and tangy.  I sauteed the pancetta in a separate pan and then cooked the radishes in olive oil, rather than the bacon pan, so that Vegetarian Girl could have […]

Adobo Grilled Chicken, Black Bean & Quinoa Salad and a Crunchy Roasted Corn repeat

YUM!  This was SUCH a delicious meal.  I had planned on only making the black bean & quinoa salad and grilled chicken, but The Boy was with me at the supermarket and saw corn on the cob and requested this corn, which he loves.  It sort “went with” the meal, so I acquiesced. Black bean […]
