  • White Bean salad, spread, or dip

    White Bean salad, spread, or dip

    Sometimes you have to admit that, no matter how hard you try to prove otherwise, you are wrong. Right on the heels of my last post about how great dried beans are, I have to take it back – at least partially. Dried beans can be great. Just not if you’re as absent-minded as me. […]

  • Tangy Bulgur Salad and New Foods

    Tangy Bulgur Salad and New Foods

    We were recently invited to a potluck lunch with an ingenious theme: “New Foods.” The host wanted guests to bring foods that would most likely be new to him, and hopefully the other guests. I gave the challenge a lot of thought. I eat a lot of weird things, so I had plenty of options. […]

  • Zesty Avocado Quinoa Salad

    Zesty Avocado Quinoa Salad

    Now that warmer weather has finally come our way, I find myself craving fresh bright salads for dinner. I don’t know about you, but I can’t often satisfy myself with just greens.

  • Warm Creamy Peanut Chicken Salad

    Warm Creamy Peanut Chicken Salad

    This isn’t the prettiest chicken salad out there, but really what chicken salad is? This salad is really easy to throw together after a long day and is great warm or cold. You can go as gourmet or as instant as you like by using fresh chicken, fresh grated ginger and garlic, or canned chicken […]

  • Lotus Root Salad

    Lotus Root Salad

    Lotus root is a beautiful vegetable that is surprisingly versatile. I’ve used it in stews, salads, and (my favorite use) tempura. JustHungry.com has a helpful guide for how to prepare this starchy root. Ever since I read this post, I’ve wanted to make Maki’s Lotus root, cucumber and Serrano ham salad. I finally had the […]
