Chickpea Artichoke Salad

For over a year now our daughter has been a vegetarian and since she’s still a growing young woman we’ve stressed to her how important it is to ensure that she is getting adequate protein in her diet. Fortunately she absolutely loves chickpeas, which are very high in protein, and this dish is one of […]

Pineapple Curry Salad

This is one of my favorite mayo salads. Exotic and tropical, sweet with a hint of garlic, I don’t know of many other salads like it. Best of all it’s very easy to make it and if you already have cooked rice, it’ll take just a few minutes to prepare. This pineapple curry salad goes […]

Simple and Delicious Potato Salad

Fall seems to be galloping towards us so when possible we’ve been taking advantage of the remaining warm days to go for hikes in the mountains. On one long hike the physical activity and fresh air really tired us out so once back home I decided to prepare some light and easy to make items […]

Beet, Orange & Walnut Salad – Vegan and Gluten Free

I found the inspiration for this salad while visiting our local natural food store. The staff were sampling an in-house made beet salad with oranges. I modified it to be vegan and gluten free, and added some walnuts for crunch. It’s low in calories and full of vitamins, and it tastes great too! Beet, Orange […]

Sauerkraut vitamin bomb salad

I have to be honest, this salad is only for people who love sauerkraut or are really open to new flavors.  Sauerkraut is really popular in Poland so I love it and I’m used to its taste.  On the other hand my husband, who also had some exposure to sauerkraut as a child, doesn’t exactly […]

These small black lentils are also called beluga lentils because when cooked they look similar to black caviar.  They are very high in fiber and protein and are an excellent choice for people who are watching their calories. We’ll take care to ensure they are cooked less than regular lentils so as to have more […]
