Tri-Color Chopped Salad with Pine Nuts and Parmesan Cheese

Rating: 4 stars 14
This salad has become a staple of my kitchen. I like that it is a chopped salad, a technique that virtually ensures each bite will include every ingredient. There is something magical about the pine nut and Parmesan combination, a fact that will not be lost on pesto lovers. This is one of those rare recipes that justifies the expense of imported Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Vegetarian Italian Pasta Salad with Arugula

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
This Italian pasta salad features all the caprese ingredients and then some - mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, plus artichoke hearts and arugula. The arugula adds great color and freshness to the salad. I love to make it for a barbeque or as a cold lunch on a hot day.

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 351
I had this at a party and couldn't get it off my mind. It's a fruity Asian chicken salad that even my family's picky eaters enjoy. I bake my own chicken for more flavor, which adds to the prep time, but pre-cooked or canned chicken will also work just fine.

Mexican Mango Salad

Quick, light salad recipe I made using some ingredients I needed to use up one day. Turned out to be a hit! Add black beans or chicken to make it a meal.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 580
After having a delicious TGI Friday's grilled chicken salad, I was determined to figure out the cilantro-lime salad dressing served with it. This is what I came up with. Delicious for a quick summery dinner. Grilled boneless chicken breasts served over a hearty green salad, and this dressing, voila!
