Peanut Thai Salad

Crunch, crunch, crunch. You won’t be able to hear much more than that while you eat this salad, but it hardly matters.  It is so delicious that you cannot focus on anything other than the tangy-yet-faintly-sweet-with-a-touch-of-tartness of the peanut dressing.  Want to add a little more crunch?  Add a handful of peanuts. The dressing doesn’t… Continue reading Peanut Thai Salad

Apple and Wheat Berry Salad

Doesn’t this salad look interesting and delicious? I thought so. However, I cannot follow recipes, it seems. I did not have pumpkin seeds…but I had sunflower kernels!  Same thing, right? Also, instead of quinoa, I decided to something else that I had splurged on just a few days before: wheat berries.  I first heard of… Continue reading Apple and Wheat Berry Salad

Korean Beef Salad

This is the final post about this Korean beef/cucumber slaw, I promise! Here is the recipe for the crockpot Korean beef that my family used.  I reduced the brown sugar, and we didn’t use the full five pounds of beef, but otherwise we stuck to the recipe. This just seemed like the simplest way to… Continue reading Korean Beef Salad

Green Fried Tomato Salad

Free produce is wonderful. Having it delivered to you is even better! My parents have been kind enough to not only help me move, pick me up to take me home last weekend so I wouldn’t have to drive, but to also bring me some fresh produce from their garden.  Mostly I have received a… Continue reading Green Fried Tomato Salad

Roasted Eggplant Mushroom Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

Confession. I did not pack this salad in my lunch.  That is only because I made it on the weekend since my eggplant was getting old, and the salad was so good that I finished it before Monday rolled around.  Ah, well.  Next time. The juicy, seasoned eggplant eliminates the need for dressing on this… Continue reading Roasted Eggplant Mushroom Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

Berry Almond Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

I have a confession. I may have added the red cabbage to this salad purely for aesthetic reasons.  I could try and say I added it because I felt the crunchiness would be a nice contrast to the soft strawberries, blueberries, and avocados.  I could try and say I added it because I felt the… Continue reading Berry Almond Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}
