Classic Wedge Salad

I’m really not a huge fan of lettuce, but that’s just not true when it comes to the Classic Wedge Salad. This one is a classic for a reason. It’s tasty and with just a few ingredients that are easy to pull together, it’s also dead simple. And while steak houses will charge you a […]

Perfect Coleslaw

Originally published on January 30, 2014 If you’ve read some of my past posts, you know that I’ve long since been on the hunt for the perfect coleslaw. Now I’m here, happy to tell you, I’ve gotten it. This one is a little creamy, a little vinegary, is big on crunch, and my kids love it, […]

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Originally published on March 14, 2014 I’m one of those people that doesn’t see a whole lot of point in having lettuce in salads. I mean, I have nothing against lettuce per se, but when there are so many other delicious vegetables, what’s the point? In Caesar salad, I get it. It’s a main component. […]

Sweet and Sour Cucumbers

Originally published on March 15, 2014 Yesterday I gave you a classic recipe for a cucumber and tomato salad, which is always a big hit at our table. But I recently discovered a side dish that might just replace that salad. You take away the oil and the tomatoes and replace it with sugar (just a […]

BLT Salad

Originally published on April 24, 2014 I’ve said before that I can become somewhat irritated by salad that has lettuce in it. But when the lettuce is the main component and when it helps with the simplicity of the dish, it is no longer boring and can even be something I really love. I made this salad for […]

Watermelon Tomato Salad

Originally published on May 16, 2014 I always have an abundance of watermelon during the summer (who doesn’t?) and my kids can never gobble it all up before it goes bad. This year though, I’m prepared, with a watermelon margarita recipe, and this delicious watermelon tomato salad. Both are so good, I’ll have to be careful to […]


Originally published on May 19, 2014 One night when I was making Chinese food at home, I wanted to add a little salad. But what kind of salad goes with Chinese food? I didn’t know any, especially those that were straight up vegetables like I wanted and didn’t include noodles of any kind. Luckily, I have a book […]

Cobb Salad

Originally published on June 7, 2014 Recently I took a trip to my hometown of Niagara-On-The-Lake and while there, my mom and I got talking about Cobb salad one day. We discussed the things that typically went into it, as well as how it got its name. Ever since that conversation, I’ve been thinking about the Cobb, […]

Bacon and Egg Salad

Originally published on June 22, 2014 We’re big on bacon and eggs around here. When my husband was growing up it was tradition in their household to enjoy a big breakfast every Sunday morning. Everyone filled up, and everyone got their eggs to order. I’ve carried on with that tradition now that we have our […]

Quinoa Salad

Originally published on June 28, 2014 Quinoa confuses me. Firstly, yes, when I first saw it on store shelves, I was one of those that contorted my mouth into all kinds of different shapes trying to pronounce it exactly as it’s spelled. When I learned that it was pronounced KEEN-wah, I thought I was all […]
