We have been eating lots of bread so…..

I think it is time to think about Salad!!

I was looking through my blog yesterday trying to think of a salad to make instead of what I have been doing lately!

I bought a bottle of Kraft Thousand Island salad dressing & have been using that & Murray has been using a dressing we found at Costco ( it is delicious) Kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame dressing & marinade!

So here are a few salad recipes you might like to look at

Purple Cabbage Slaw

I picked up a beautiful purple cabbage at my local farmers market. It is small which is just the right size for Murray & I Inspired by the Purple Cabbage Salad in the Kosher By Design Cookbook by Susie Fishbein, I made a purple cabbage slaw. It is delicious! Different from the one in the…

Fresh Corn Salad with Tomatoes

Fresh corn cut off the cob, fresh crisp tomatoes, mint & feta! This corn salad is delicious with just olive oil & salt & pepper to dress it. A perfect accompaniment to anything really.  I served this salad as part of a dinner buffet with the Arugula Salad with Grilled Halloumi & a grilled vegetable torte. All…

Halloumi Cheese with Spinach Salad

I love Halloumi cheese. We had some the other night, pan seared & a spinach salad dressed with a greek salad dressing. We had some salmon burgers & homemade tzatziki  as well. My favourite fish store, Ocean Odyssey Inland, makes their own salmon burgers. I just happened to be there right after the fish had been prepared…

Living Greens Salad with Blackberries

I love the living greens lettuce ( I think that is what it is called…lettuce that has the root attached) … it is available at Costco & most of the grocery stores that I go to. but you can use butter lettuce for this salad…any soft sweet kind of lettuce Simple & light in flavour,…

Cabbage, Corn & Pepper Salad

I had this salad at my sister’s home last week. We were visiting her in California. It was a great visit with lots of great food! She got the recipe from a friend of hers, I don’t know who it was. The salad was a bit sweet for Murray & I so I have made…

Spinach Salad with Strawberries & Blackberries

This spinach salad with fruit is an old favourite & one of my daughter’s all time fav! It comes to me from my friend Nora probably over 25 years ago…. This salad can be pretty flexible with the ingredients. The original calls for spinach, strawberries & roasted slivered almonds. Certainly if anyone has an allergy…

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
