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!

Roasted Corn & Tomato Salad with Basil Balsamic Dressing

Roasted Corn & Tomato Salad with Basil Balsamic Dressing by Amos Miller

Super simple Summer salad! Almost a relish, yet offering opportunity for countless variations, this is picnic & BBQ perfect. On these hot summer days, you may not want to fire up the broiler, but this salad is so easy to bring together that when the coals are ready on the grill, just lay the unhusked ears of sweet corn over the…

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.

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…

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.

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…

Warm Chickpea and Greens Salad

Warm Chickpea and Greens Salad by John Spottiswood

This was also a big hit at our weekend getaway. The combination of greens, chickpeas, and sumac with lemon and fresh mint is really to die for. People went back for seconds of this salad, which is saying something given how much other good food there was!

Moroccan Beet Salad

Moroccan Beet Salad by John Spottiswood

This is a classic beet salad. If you like beets, you're going to really enjoy this. My personal preference is to boil the beets as little as possible That way they still have a crunch to them but aren't as hard as raw beets. I think raw beets are perfectly delicious, and I don't like them soft, so I boil them just enough to soften…

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…

Romaine Salad with Lemon-Parmesan Dressing by Nancy Miyasaki

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!

Spinach Salad with Avocado and Toasted Almonds by John Spottiswood

Creamy, crunchy, spicy and sweet, this salad covers all the flavor bases and provides a wonderful base for the linked Ginger Sesame Salmon recipe. It's beautiful too.

Warm Brussles Sprouts Salad with Almonds and Parmesan

Warm Brussles Sprouts Salad with Almonds and Parmesan by Nancy Miyasaki

I adapted this from a Oprah recipe. She makes the salad with raw brussel sprouts. I couldn't quite trust that, so I blanched them lightly before slicing. This produced a delcious and slightly warm salad. I should have tried some raw and some cooked to see which method is best. Maybe one of you can do that and let us know?

Fire Up The Grill, Toss the Slaw, I've Got The Fastest Salad Ever!!! Plus, Enter To Win Tropical Traditions Coconut. by kathy gori

There are days when no matter how much I love it, I just don't feel like cooking. When the lazy don't feel like cooking, the lazy go out to eat. That does happen sometimes but most of the time, since we try to watch what we eat and keep it on the…

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…
