Fall Panzanella with Kale and Cranberry Walnut Bread

Happy Friday  Just a super quick post because I miss ya. And ‘cause I threw this together for a pot luck at work and I got lots of requests for the recipe.  And ‘cause I’m proud of myself for throwing together a season appropriate recipe that people actually liked that […]


(Almost) Raw Moroccan Mango Chickpea Salad

One more day and I’ll be off; flying through the air, straight to San Francisco where we will be for four nights and then heading over to Sonoma for the next three nights for our 10th anniversary.  This is really the second major trip my hubby Chris and I have taken where we fly out […]


Crunchy Kale Fattoush

I do believe I have discovered the dressing secret of my favorite salad at Mandaloun Mediterranean.  It is tart, tangy, sweet perfection and I think I figured it out by accident.  On a whim, while at the St Augustine Farmers Market I decided I would make a version of the […]


Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad.

I don’t know about you, but I loathe unloading the dishwasher.  It was so horrible that until recently would actually hand wash the dishes in the sink rather than unload the dishwasher.  Why the avoidance?  Because I had about 300 different plastic containers shoved in the “plastic container cabinet” with mismatched lids, brands […]


Spinach Caprese Salad with Sun Dried Tomato and Balsamic Vinaigrette

  There is still one more day to leave a comment to win a Table for Two!  Click here for details. ——————————————————— Hypothetically speaking you could be invited to a BBQ today and be asked to bring a salad or “whatever is easy”. Brain wracking ensues to be sure that […]


Dilled Cucumber Salad with Sprouted Quinoa and Hummus

I have a few announcements before we get started. 1. This is my 500th post.  Woo hoo! 2. I think my email subscription box is finally up and working.  Thanks to an email from a new friend named Lisa that prompted me to try and add it again. 3. The “follower” button […]


Sweet Curry Roasted Butternut and Pear Salad with Walnuts

One of my favorite salads at Native Sun is a curry sweet potato pear salad with walnuts.  There is something about the sweetness of the pear and sweet potato against the spice mixture of the curry and the nutty walnuts that makes it a perfect balance.  I recreated it once […]


Asian Peanut and Cabbage Salad and 7 Facts Award

Thanks to Cooking in College for awarding me the 7-Facts Award.  I am so flattered! 1. I go through almost two tubs of plain Greek yogurt each week.  My favorite brand is Chobani. 2. I have gone tenting in the Arizona desert for two weeks at a time, three times. […]


Spicy-Sweet Miso Marinated Broccoli Salad and Eat. Live. Be.

Happy Valentines Day! I have such a wonderful recipe for you; but first, Eat. Live.Be. Today’s Eat. Live. Be. topic is “Straight from the experts”. I like the website RealAge which bases its information on a Scientific Advisory Board including the co-creators of the site; Michael F. Roizen, MD and […]


Curried Tofu Salad

It’s Friday!  And….I have a girls night tomorrow night!  I can’t wait. I’ll be trying out a new restaurant at the beach called Salt Life.  Hubby has been out of town on a golf trip since Wednesday so it’s just been us girls at home (my daughter and I).  My […]


Toasted Garbanzo Mediterranean Salad

Here is another recipe from my cookout last Sunday.  Justine’s amazing Mediterranean salad based off a mix of several salads from this month’s Eating Well Magazine.  This was also great with the addition of some feta cheese. I got my camera back. Yay! Depth of field again. Toasted Garbanzo Mediterranean Salad […]


Best Veggie Pasta Salad

My new thing on Sunday (starting as of last week) is to make a different big salad for lunches instead of soup as the weather is warming up a bit.  This was my first try and it is perfect for a snack or a light meal with the addition of a protein.  Best […]
