Blackberry Spinach Salad
This is an excellent brunch salad that's very easy to throw together. This tastes great without a dressing, but some people like a bacon dressing or a nice balsamic vinegar.
Creamy Mandarin Orange Salad

Fast and Easy Spinach with Shallots
Here's a simple, healthy side dish that's fast and easy to prepare.
Pear and Pomegranate Salad
A fall and winter favorite--I am always eager for pomegranates to come in season so I can make this again. I make my own pomegranate juice by pressing the seeds against a metal sieve.
Joy's Taco Salad
This is one of those 'some of this and some of that' recipes. I call this garbage salad because when traveling to a picnic I carry it in a medium (untreated) trash bag, and fill a container when there! You can substitute fresh jalapenos for the canned green chiles, if you like. Serve with whole chips on the side.
Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
A refreshing light pasta salad with a delicious Asian flair. Great for a summer cookout or picnic. Tastes great right away, and even better if you can allow it to marinate for a while.
Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)
This recipe can be eaten as a side dish or as a light meal. It's great with a grilled pork chop and some crusty bread. Its origins date back to North African cultures and is one of the very popular choices of tapas in Seville's bars.
