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. Continue reading “Fresh Corn Salad with Tomatoes”
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.
This macaroni said is a bit different then some recipes I see. The recipe was given to me when I lived in Yellowknife over 30 years ago. I had actually forgotten about it, but when I was looking through my recipe book, there it was! I am happy I found it!
This spinach salad with fruit is an old favourite & one of my daughters all time favs! It comes to me from my friend Nora probably over 25 years ago….

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.

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 a grain added to it. I use it a lot … Continue reading Tahini Salad Dressing
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 & see how it turned out.
Looking in the fridge last night & wanting to make a salad, I was disappointed that pretty much all the vegetables were gone! Ha! What was in the fridge was a beautiful purple cabbage & some carrots. 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 … Continue reading Purple Cabbage Slaw
I love Halloumi cheese. We had some the other night, pan seared & with 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 to be made into the patties so I bought … Continue reading Halloumi Cheese with Spinach Salad

If the salad is made with kale it lasts a bit longer in the fridge as left-overs because the kale does not get too soggy., though I personally like a soft piece of spinach with the quinoa…When I put this salad together I thought about the different … Continue reading Spinach Salad with Quinoa
