Simple Coleslaw

This recipe is adapted from one my mother-in-law makes. I have cut down the sugar & some of the spices… My MIL always had coleslaw in the fridge whenever we went there to visit! Everyone ate coleslaw at least once a day!! Advertisements

Asian Coleslaw with Ichiban Noodles

An old favourite salad recipe that I forget about! With all of the new recipes I look at everyday & the new ‘trendy’ way to eat vegetables…kale, shaved brussels sprouts… it is nice to turn back & re-visit some past favs

Orzo Salad with Imitation Crab

What a delicious idea! This orzo salad is like a deconstructed California roll! It can be eaten warm or cold & makes a good side dish or a stand-alone dish as well…I liked it the next day for dinner.   I made this when we had company over for & everyone really enjoyed it.

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. 

Arugula Salad with Grilled Halloumi

I don’t know if you have ever eaten Halloumi cheese but I love it. This cheese is having ‘a day’, showing up on menus in restaurants & it is available in most major grocery stores….in my city of Edmonton anyway.

Macaroni Salad

Brussel Sprout & Kale Slaw

Brussel Sprouts are not my favourite vegetable by any means. Sometimes if they are roasted & seasoned with maple syrup….haha….I can eat them! But I do like them raw in this salad. Paired with Kale, this is so healthy & fresh.

Tahini Salad Dressing

I love this salad dressing. It is adapted from a recipe on the Canadian Living Magazine website. This is one of my ‘go-to’ salad dressings. The salad that I have put it on tonight has roasted sweet potatoes & roasted yellow pepper. lettuce, tomatoes,cucumber & sliced almonds.  I like this dressing on a salad with…

Greek Pasta Salad

I love pasta salad, but the problem is sometimes I find that the pasta is quite tasteless & worse for me is if it is undercooked…or overcooked I suppose!  I realize I don’t love the vegetables in there either…I am not being critical of other peoples pasta salads…I just wanted to make mine a bit different…
