Kale and Blueberry Salad with Pecans and Blue Cheese

August 3, 2012 Salads

After one of the most intense work weeks of my life, my body is in need of clean, healthy food. Between stress and severe time constraints, there’s little room for good eats. My diet has been absolutely miserable this week. I don’t know about you, but when I’m stressed and anxious, I tend to go [...]

Lemony White Bean and Tuna Salad

March 20, 2012 Fish

    The unseasonably warm (yet glorious!) weather has caused me to lose my taste for heavy winter foods. I’ve been cracking into lighter fare, so it has been all salads, yogurt and cold noodles for me. And this amazing tuna salad. Simple, lemony and super filling. It’s prefect for lunch/dinner and home/office, it travels [...]

Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

January 13, 2012 Salads

Grapefruit is currently in season and I couldn’t be happier about it. There’s something warm and bright about citrus in the winter, no? It almost makes you forget about the freezing, icy air outside.  About a week ago,  I got a sudden craving, picked up a bag of juicy, ruby reds and ploughed through them [...]

Orange Israeli Couscous with Mache and White Beans

August 13, 2011 Salads

One of my favorite things about cooking is taking seemingly incongruous ingredients and combining them to discover that they work together perfectly. On some level it makes sense that if you like foods separately, you’ll like them together, but it’s pretty amazing how often it just doesn’t work- ketchup and ice cream anyone? Actually, that [...]

Pan Seared Sea Scallop Salad with Cilantro Dressing

August 9, 2011 Fish

Sea scallops are one of those foods I used to avoid making because they seemed…I don’t know…elitist? They’re sophisticated and delicate and so intimidating. I’m terrified of turning them to rubber in the pan, so I usually only go for them at restaurants. But the other night, after one too many of these, my confidence [...]

Ultimate Falafel Salad

May 21, 2011 Dinner

Last post, I wrote about how I like to eat pickled purple cabbage on top of salads. Well, I particularly love it on top of this falafel salad. The ultimate falafel salad, named for its greatness.  It has a little bit of everything, a veritable party on your plate. I have a penchant for Greek [...]
