Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley

Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley by Salad Foodie

A quick-to-fix green bean side dish or vegetarian main dish. I like to use my steamer for the beans and carrots, but they could also be boiled briefly and drained. This makes a beautiful presentation with interesting flavor combinations. The real trick is getting the seasoning right. Experiment with your favorite herb combinations,…

So colorful, light and refreshing, this goes over well at summer feeds, and helps use up your garden harvest. Make this in advance to allow a thorough chilling, about 2 hours.

Vinaigrette Coleslaw I

Vinaigrette Coleslaw I by Salad Foodie

Light with a nice balance of sweet/sour, Vinaigrette Coleslaw has become one of my favorites from BGH.COM, and makes a welcome change from creamy coleslaw recipes.

Kale with Kalamata Olives

Kale with Kalamata Olives by Salad Foodie

Kale is hearty and healthy, and often teams in winter soups with potatoes and beans. But in this recipe, based on Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, it takes center stage. Quick to prepare it is a pleasant change from other green sides. Don’t let the volume of a one pound bunch of kale scare you off - it cooks down!

Four C Coleslaw

Four C Coleslaw by Salad Foodie

This is my version of a coleslaw I tasted many years ago at a catered event. It's close but not precisely the same. However it's a refreshing change from those familiar too-creamy coleslaws. The salad base is made up of 4 vegetables that start with the letter C, hence the recipe name. Cabbage, corn, cucumber, and cilantro team up…
