Salads and Dressings

No-Mayo Potato Salad

July 10, 2011

My oven died last week while roasting the potatoes for this salad. I should probably go ahead and get that fixed. Clearly, there hasn’t been any baking going on around here. For this salad, roasted potatoes aren’t even required; I think it’s just as tasty when you simply boil the potatoes. My sister shared this […]

Awesome Chicken Salad

May 16, 2011

This is my favorite chicken salad recipe. It is awesome. I found it after looking for something similar to Trader Joe’s wine country chicken salad (which is delicious but sort of pricey and crazy-high in calories). While I haven’t done a side by side taste comparison, this version comes mighty close. And if you cheat […]


I can’t believe that neglected to share this recipe during butternut squash season. It’s one of my absolute favorites. I’ve made it so many times since I discovered it over a year ago because I often crave this specific combination of flavors: roasted sweet squash, crunchy red onions and chickpeas bathed in a tangy, nutty […]


Egg(less) Salad

April 12, 2011

I went with an eggless version because a) I didn’t feel like boiling/peeling eggs b) it’s much lower in cholesterol c) I heard that it tastes […]


I’ve been on a DIY condiments kick lately. Making foods from scratch is often times healthier and more cost effective than eating preserved foods and it’s (surprisingly) easy to do. I also like knowing exactly what’s in my food. Salad dressings are especially easy to whip up. I’ve made a lot of different vinaigrettes but […]


Pear and Gorgonzola Salad

January 25, 2011

It was eight degrees today, but instead of sharing a soup recipe or something belly-warming, I’m going to tell you about this salad. I don’t really use salad recipes because I think salads are more about flavor combinations; just put however much of whatever you like in them. This is one of my favorite combinations: […]


Carrot and Ginger Dressing

December 6, 2010

One of my favorite meals in New York City costs $6.95 at an Asian inspired diner in the West Village called Dojo. It’s basically just a plate of steamed vegetables with a side of tofu, rice and beans but they make this amazing carrot tahini dressing that I crave on a regular basis. The veggies […]
