Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa

One of the perks of living in Florida is that when fruit trees bear fruit, people suddenly have more than they know what do with, and the wealth inevitably gets shared. I remember waking up to a huge box of mangos on my front porch one morning when I lived there during law school…

One of my friend’s parents’ had a mango tree in their backyard (along with a grapefruit tree, those lucky ducks) and I was absolutely certain the fruit was from her family (who also frequently dropped off oranges and avocados that they got from a friend who also had fruit trees). (more…)

Apple-Walnut Rainbow Chard Salad

I swear, if you hop backwards 11 times facing the sunset every Sunday, you won’t be sick all week!, a friend told me. Hmm…I guess I can see how that would work, I replied with a smile on my face. (Not so much, really, but who am I to judge?)

Anyway, I have my own ideas too…I try not to skip workouts (because they clean out my lungs) and I religiously take a Vitamin C pill every day. (more…)

Spicy Blue Cheese Celery Slaw

When I was younger I hated celery, of all things.

As the perfect vessel for things like peanut butter, cream cheese, or French onion dip, celery is such an odd vegetable to hate on. But I wouldn’t have been caught dead munching a celery stick…not even along with a chicken wing and blue cheese for dipping. (more…)

Do you have a birthday buddy?

I do; actually, I have a few. (Give me a shout out if your birthday is also September 30th!)

But I was an adult when I first met I someone with the same birthday as mine. (Which is pretty sad, right? That would have been so much fun as a kid!) (more…)

Bulgur Wheat Salad with Pomegranate + Walnut

The first time I made this salad was last summer for a cookout at my parents’ house before Mike and I left for Kuwait. I wanted to bring a hearty salad, and I was trying to clean out my pantry and fridge when I found a bag of bulgur wheat in the pantry and a bottle of pomegranate molasses in the fridge. For some reason I thought combining the two in one dish was the best idea ever.

As strange as this pairing might sound, it is pretty fantastic. (more…)

Greek-Flavored Butter Bean Salad

I’m a big fan of bold flavors.

Raw onion.

Fresh dill.

Kalamata olives.

Feta.

Garlic (although that’s not in this recipe).

Which means I have to carry around a travel-sized toothbrush and matching miniature tube of toothpaste. (Wait, what? You mean your purse isn’t likewise equipped?) (more…)

Last week when I posted my recipe for Thai-Inspired Fried Rice with Chicken I included a little teaser for this salad. I love this salad with any Thai dish, and now I know it must be a reader favorite too – I’ve received a ton of emails requesting the recipe in the past week! (more…)

DSC_7843(small)I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a wonderful start! With so many people making resolutions to get healthier, I thought this would be the perfect time to share a recipe that is as nourishing and healthy as it is delicious. It’s the kind of meal you’d get in a spa for lunch if you were taking the whole day to pamper yourself. (more…)

Pineapple-Almond Slaw Salad

Friday, May 11th, 2012

The day I made this Pineapple-Almond Slaw Salad I was having my mom and sister over for lunch (built-in recipe testers are the best, aren’t they?).  This salad was so delicious (and addictive) with its crunchy texture and sweet/tart/nutty flavor that we all basically inhaled it – and were too full for the rest of lunch!
