Lemon Poppy Slaw

Here she goes again – singing the praises of cabbage. Now that the weather is warming, it’s so nice to enjoy cabbage raw in a fresh slaw. I served this with the Lemon Pepper Bass Kabobs and ate the leftovers for lunch for many days later – the flavors only getting better as the daysContinue reading “Lemon Poppy Slaw”

Simple Arugula Salad

aka “The Pizza Salad” Why the nickname? I’m not sure where it started – when I think about it I think lovingly of Cecconi’s – but my girlfriends and I have this thing where we love eating cold salad on top of hot pizza. The salad is best when it’s made with arugula – becauseContinue reading “Simple Arugula Salad”

Georgia *Salad* on my Mind

When my husband told my he wanted to go to Georgia I was confused. It didn’t sound like the far off places he usually suggests. Except he meant Georgia – the COUNTRY – at the same time all our friends were going to Ibiza – so there was a slew of reasons why I wasContinue reading “Georgia *Salad* on my Mind”

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Strawberry Salad

Here’s what I have to say about this Strawberry Salad – aside from the fact that a Strawberry Salad is the ONLY salad my husband actually requests – there are 4 key ingredients aside from the strawberries and they ALL can be substituted – honestly, even the strawberries could be peaches if that’s what youContinue reading “Strawberry Salad”

Grilled Radicchio Salad

Not going to lie, very much missing Via Carota right now. I love their grilled raddichio, amongst basically everything else of the menu.

Typing this I’m thinking I should find a way to re-create the griddled Scamorza so stay tuned.Continue reading “Grilled Radicchio Salad”

Dill-icious Cucumber Salad

I am writing this recipe in honor of my 96-year-old Great Grandmother, “Nanny G,” who always stocks her fridge with old school cucumber salad upon my arrival in Florida. She likes to “zhuzh” up the deli-bought version, but, as always, I was convinced I could make it even better from scratch. That is all I’mContinue reading “Dill-icious Cucumber Salad”
