Greek Orzo Salad

If you throw some feta cheese and Kalamata olives into a dish, then you’ve got the beginnings of something Greek and delicious. If you’re not familiar with my blog then I’m here to tell you that I’m a huge fan of Greek cooking. (I am half Greek so it comes with the territory.) That means that I have a number of Greek salads and other savory and sweet recipes in my recipe box (i.e. recipe index). I love this Greek orzo salad for lunch. You’ve got some hearty orzo, a little protein from the chick peas, a little Greek flavor …

German Potato and Hard Boiled Egg Salad

You know it’s January when you go from cookie to salad recipes. I’m not the kind of person who starts diets at the beginning of the new year. However, the fact is that I did indulge over the holidays and so now it’s back to eating a more balanced diet. I eat salads for lunch often, especially since we started working from home last March.

Tomato Salad

Red, purple, yellow. None of those flavorless spongy pink ones here. This salad is all about …

Goat Cheese, Bacon, and Apple Salad

I’ve got a fun and fancy salad for you today. This salad has been one of my absolute favorites lately. I love the combination of the tangy goat cheese, the salty and crispy bacon, and the sweet apple. Seriously, it’s so good. Lately, I haven’t liked the store bought bottle dressings and I’m too lazy to make homemade salad dressings This semi-homemade Italian dressing has been the ideal solution. I take a Goods Seasons Italian herb packet and combine it with oil, vinegar, and water. Pretty nifty. This has been my go-to salad dressing for the past three months for …

Panzanella with Chicken

I’ve been on a salad kick lately. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve seen a lot of salad pictures in my instastories because I’ve been eating them for lunch almost every day. It’s not often that I crave healthy food so I’ll run with it while I can. Believe me, it’s not all healthy all day. I have my share of chocolate chip cookies or ice cream later in the day. And if we’re being honest salads full of bread or bacon aren’t winning a lot of awards. It’s all about balance. Panzanella is a Tuscan salad with …
