Summer’s End Tomato Salad

Summer’s End Tomato Salad

If you’re grilling out this weekend for Labor Day, you’ve got to add this tomato pomegranate salad to your cookout menu! It’s gloriously colorful and absolutely bursting with freshness, perfect alongside grilled meats. Fresh summertime tomatoes are coming to a close just as pomegranates are […]

Wild Rice Edamame Salad with Avocado Basil Dressing

Wild Rice Edamame Salad with Avocado Basil Dressing

This summer heat has me daydreaming about really good salads, which I can pretty confidently say is a first. Happily this wild rice and edamame salad checks off all of our summer dream ingredients: tomatoes, mozzarella, edamame, and lick-the-spoon-delicious avocado-lemon-basil dressing! Sometimes a recipe idea just comes […]

Kale Slaw Salad

Kale Slaw Salad

This weekend is the official kickoff of picnic season! I’m so ready for windy morning hikes and hot afternoons by the creek. But be honest with me… are potluck picnics just hopelessly uncool now? Because I still love them. First of all, it’s time with friends but […]

Muffuletta Pasta Salad

Muffuletta Pasta Salad

Pasta salad with no mayo, no mustard, and less pasta than meats & cheeses – this is not your usual picnic salad! Taking all the fillings of a good N’awlins muffuletta sandwich and tossing them with pasta is a guaranteed favorite that’s always on request […]

Chicken Cranberry Apple Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Chicken Cranberry Apple Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

I’ve hit the mid-January superfood slump. My rah-rah enthusiasm for kale has been almost completely replaced with dreams of gooey cheese dips. (Queso fundido, I’m seriously looking at you.) When I get in these moods I have to switch up my lunches so I don’t cave.  I […]

Green Goodness Quinoa Salad

Green Goodness Quinoa Salad

Anyone else still dragging from a major sugar coma? All of us? Yep. (Every year, I buy candy I don’t like so I won’t eat it. Every year, I eat it anyway.) Let’s atone with a salad that tastes too good to be called a salad. […]

Thai Beef Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Thai Beef Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Friends, this SAUCE. ♡ Soy-garlic-lime-peanutty goodness with a big kick of fresh ginger is my new favorite! Spice it up or down as much as you want with red pepper flakes, sweeten it a little with a sprinkle of brown sugar – I was literally licking the […]

Grilled Honey-Ginger Grapefruit

Grilled Honey-Ginger Grapefruit

Ginger + honey + grapefruit might be my new favorite flavor for summer! Sweet local honey mellows out the tartness of the citrus, but it’s the freshly grated ginger that really shines. Cooking grapefruit pulls out the most gorgeous, vibrant colors for a beautiful breakfast to […]

Mexican Street Corn Salad

Mexican Street Corn Salad

Friends, if you only make one thing this weekend, let it be this. I am utterly obsessed with this tangy-spicy-salty salad, like gone-in-24-hours-all-by-myself obsessed, and I want to share this happiness. Ever had elotes? Grilled corn-on-the-cob slathered with creamy chili-lime sauce and salty cotija cheese, […]

Chipotle-Lime Cabbage Fish Tacos

Chipotle-Lime Cabbage Fish Tacos

Fish tacos are summertime-perfect, easy and cravable without being too heavy for a hot evening on the porch. We’re making a super-simple cabbage slaw and an even easier sauce and sticking the fish in the oven because nobody wants to stand over a hot stove. […]
