So I have been craving a good bean salad this week and something had to be done about it. I made this recipe on the fly and although I have photos, I didn’t take step-by-step pics like I do in all my other posts.
Now, if there’s one thing I don’t like about bean salads in general, it’s the sugar content that most of them have. I wanted something zesty and fresh. I’m also not crazy about green or wax beans in my salad either (I know picky, picky!) Well, the great thing about this salad is that it’s totally versatile. Pick the beans, veggies and herbs that you like. You can use my recipe as a guide or just make it like I did. I will say this, when I put the first spoonful in my mouth, it tasted like SUMMER! Craving conquered! The next time I make this recipe I will update it with step by step pics. But this recipe so easy, you really don’t need them.
This recipe made 6 cups of salad. If yours makes more or less, adjust your oil, vinegar, and salt accordingly. Also, you can easily use lemon instead of vinegar. Possibilities are endless. Continue reading
Greek Salad is probably my most favourite salad. So fresh, so tasty! I could eat it every day but I don’t because I know I would get sick of it and I don’t want that. In my city, there’s an Italian grocery store called Angelino’s that makes fresh homemade dishes ready to take home. They also make fresh Greek Salad that I have purchased from time to time because they are SO GOOD! Their dressing is a family secret and they weren’t about to tell me what it is. Fair enough. I had to crack the code on greek salad dressing that would compare to theirs. I think I came pretty close. I would have to get a job there as Salad Girl if I really wanted their recipe.

This versatile Salad Entrée makes for two servings that’s refreshing and filling. A great summer meal with minimal cooking heat in the kitchen. The vegetables in this salad can be altered depending on what veggies and fixings you like or have on hand. I barbequed marinated boneless-skinless chicken thighs (you could also use baked or grilled chicken from your kitchen if you don’t have a bbq). Continue reading
This is a very fresh salad that will work out well even if you make it a day ahead. Store in an air tight container. Just add the dressing prior to serving.
Note: The next time I make this recipe I will update with photos. Continue reading
This recipe gets handed out quite a bit. Need and idea for a Potluck? Here it is. Feel free to make substitutions with the beans and vegetables if there’s something you don’t like. Just make sure the quantities add up the same.
Note: The next time I make this recipe I will update with photos.
This is another excellent snack for potlucks and functions. Be sure to double recipe if you are going to feed a crowd. Continue reading
This recipe was totally inspired by a salad that I ate at Moxie’s Restaurant. I wrote down all the ingredients from the menu and made it at home the next day. Always a winner. Make it a meal: Serve with side grilled chicken breast or salmon fillet. Speaking of salmon fillet…you can serve this salad with my Best Ever Breaded Salmon. Continue reading
