San Antone Black Bean Salad

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

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!

Romaine Salad with Creamy Basil Dressing

Romaine Salad with Creamy Basil Dressing by John Spottiswood

The crisp inner leaves of romaine lettuce goes wonderfully with this light and creamy basil-infused dressing. We served the same dressing the following night with a more traditional mixed green salad with lettuce, avocado, tomato and cucumber, and that was delicious too. If you're looking for a tasty alternative to a caesar dressing,…

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…

Mom's French Salad Dressing

Mom's French Salad Dressing by Bob Vincent

This is a salad dressing my Mom made for our family when I was a kid growing up in Nebraska. My brother loved the stuff. There is one very similar posted on CES but I thought I would post my Mom's as well. I don't know where she got the recipe; perhaps from an old 1950's cookbook or from a newspaper. It keeps well refrigerated.…

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…

Creamy Cucumber Salad

Creamy Cucumber Salad by Salad Foodie

This refreshing salad is a departure from traditional marinated cucumbers, and perfect for summer cookouts and picnics. Cucumbers may be peeled or not. If seeding them is preferred, add an extra cucumber to make up for the loss of volume.

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!
