Mediterranean Summer Salad

Mediterranean Summer Salad by Amos Miller

This Spanish-influenced salad is refreshing anytime you have it - from a dinner party to a picnic lunch. Bright notes of lime and cilantro. the wonderful pairing of sweet onion and navel orange, the sensuously smooth silkiness of avocado and tomato, all set off by the crisp crunch of toasted almond slices and the elegant earthiness…

Perfect French Side Salad

Perfect French Side Salad by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple tasting but wonderful side salad. The ingredients listed are not that easy to find, but you should feel free to substitute other lettuces and herbs that are available. The green beans are important though...so include them if you can. And the dressing is a must. Mix and enjoy!

Ahmad's Tabouli Salad

Ahmad's Tabouli Salad by Salad Foodie

There are many versions of Tabouli around, but this recipe was introduced to me by a young man from Lebonon who lived with us for a while. Several times a year the craving for this salad comes over me and I get the chopping board out! This recipe makes a large batch but I always give bowls of it away to friends and family, as…

Chopped Salad with Sweet Basil Dressing

Chopped Salad with Sweet Basil Dressing by John Spottiswood

A few months ago Lora Krulak sent Nancy and I her cookbook Veggies for Carnivores. The small book is packed with a lot of recipes and variations which are tasty and easy to make. One of our favorites was this salad recipe. We've used the dressing on multiple salads now, but the first we tried it on was this chopped salad. We had…

Citrus and Avocado Salad

Citrus and Avocado Salad by John Spottiswood

This was one of my favorite salads growing up. My grandmother would serve it in a butter lettuce leaf cup with just grapefruit, avocado, and a light vinegarette. This version has a bit more too it, and is equally good.

Garlic Vinaigrette

Garlic Vinaigrette by Alice Waters

Garlic vinaigrette is the dressing I make most often. The quantities that follow are only an approximate guide because garlics, vinegars, and oils vary so much in strength and intensity. The first step in making vinaigrette is to macerate garlic in vinegar and salt. The vinegar softens the raw taste of the garlic, and the salt tames…

Butter Lettuce and Avocado salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

Butter Lettuce and Avocado salad with Citrus Vinaigrette by John Spottiswood

I'm a sucker for fresh butter lettuce with citrus and avocado. I adapted this recipe (rather major adaptions) from a recipe in the America's Test Kitchen Menu's cookbook. I thought the salad, and the dressing in particular, was just amazing. The mayo, Dijon and honey balance nicely with tanginess of the tangerine juice. If you are…

A simple but fantastic salad with a very nice dressing. Oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes add depth and flavor to this salad. We all really enjoyed this. Another amazing dish from my good friend Marci Chan!

Arugula with Packham Pears and Borage Blossoms

Arugula with Packham Pears and Borage Blossoms by Warren Weber

Nutty arugula and sweet pears make this salad an excellent after-dinner course. Prepare the salad before dinner; a squeeze of lime over the pears will keep them from darkening. Bartlett, Comice, or Bosc pears can be substituted for the Packhams. Select ripe pears that are firm but not mushy. Dress with Pear Vinaigrette.

Chickpea and Tomato Salad with Grilled Pita

Chickpea and Tomato Salad with Grilled Pita by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a refreshing and delicious salad. It's healthy and filling, so a good salad to serve with soup or another lighter dish. It's super quick if you use canned garbanzo beans, or save money by using dried chickpeas. This is a great side dish for when you are grilling.

Tomato and Avocado Salad

Tomato and Avocado Salad by John Spottiswood

This is a wonderful salad. Steeping the avocado in the lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper for an hour before serving is a real key to the flavor. We served this with small but flavorful tomatoes, so instead of the presentation recommended below, we just tossed everything together and served it. If I had big slices of heirloom…
