Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Caramelized Onions

Enjoy this decadent side dish of Brussels sprouts warm (mixed with blue cheese, walnut and dried cranberries), or chop up the leftovers and serve them over greens for a cold {sweet & savory} salad. And yes, Brussels sprouts can be decadent.

Mexican Caprese Salad

Friday, July 27, 2012


This fusion of Mexican and Italian cuisines was inspired by the Italian Caprese salad.

Cobb salad is the quintessential main course salad of the United States and consists of lettuce topped with hard-boiled eggs, chicken, bacon, avocado, cheese and tomatoes. It is easy to make and perfect for a light, summer meal.

Fruit Salad with Teriyaki-Glazed Pecans

Wednesday, June 16, 2010


This salad is light and refreshing without being overly sweet. I love the fact that because the salad is loaded with fruits and candied pecans, you don't have to use much salad dressing at all.

Potato Salad

Friday, April 16, 2010


This creamy potato salad is reminiscent of the classic potato salad that I had growing up. I love that I now don't have to feel guilty while eating it. It is made with light sour cream instead of mayonnaise so it is actually a nutritious side dish loaded with vegetables, healthy proteins and starch.
