I like to make this refreshing salad to accompany chicken or grilled seafood.
I love this traditional Mediterranean appetizer of fresh caprese salad with mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and pesto. This salad makes for a nice light lunch or as a side salad for dinner.
This delicious fresh lettuce salad with grilled zucchini, corn and soft goat cheese makes a great side dish. Juicy corn kernels and tender zucchini are dressed in a tangy lemon basil vinaigrette. To make this salad vegan just leave out the goat cheese.
I love to serve this bright and crunchy salad as a side dish for grilled steak, piled onto a fish taco, or as a topper for a chicken sandwich.
I really like to make this Mediterranean Bean Salad and keep it on hand for both weeknight and weekend meals. It’s fast, easy, fresh, and pairs well with any grilled or roasted meat. If you want to make this salad vegan then just leave out the feta cheese.
I like how buttermilk and sour cream give this dressing a zesty tang, but the creamy texture tames the pleasant bitterness of the greens. This simple salad is a delicious compliment to a weekend meal.
This is one of my go-to quick and easy week night dishes. I love it so much that I probably make it once a week. If you would like to make it gluten free then use tamari instead of soy sauce. If you’re peanut sensitive then use almond butter instead of peanut butter. And if you would like to increase the protein in this dish then just add cooked chicken or seafood.
I love this delicious winter salad with pomegranate, orange segments, arugula, and Parmesan cheese. Perfect for every day and elegant enough for holiday meals.
This just might be the perfect dish. It’s beautiful, delicious, healthy and easy to make. Like most good salads, it works well with variations. Try adding a little tuna, or serve it alongside steak or fish. Just be sure to use your best olive oil, and enough salt and pepper. This salad can be made a day ahead. For the best results on the second day, bring it to room temperature before serving and refresh it with a touch of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.
This dinner salad is loaded with deliciousness and is a nice way to lighten up on all of that holiday eating. If you would like to lighten it up even more, then you may want to use a reduced or fat-free blue cheese dressing.
