Grilled Pineapple Salad

Rating: 5 stars 7
Sweet and savory come together beautifully in this salad of marinated grilled chicken and pineapple on a healthy bed of baby spinach. We never have leftovers and everyone who eats it wants the recipe! Use fresh pineapple and rosemary; it makes the dish.

Grilled Hearts of Romaine

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
This is truly and ridiculously easy. The trick is to get the grill grates very hot. And the result? A lightly caramelized surface and a slightly smoky flavor. The insides stay cool and crisp. It's quite a contrast of tastes and textures.

Pineapple Rocket Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
This arugula (rocket) salad with pineapple and red onion is perfect for warmer weather. It's my favorite healthy recipe.

Avocado Watermelon Salad

Rating: 4 stars 11
This is a very healthy, yet delightfully different salad. A flavorful addition could be small slices of red onion.

Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad

Rating: 4 stars 51
This is kid-approved and great to serve chilled on a hot summer's day. Great addition to any meal or just alone.

Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 125
Watermelon, cucumber, and feta cheese combine for a light, cool, and refreshing summer salad.

Roasted Carrot Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 198
Inspired by an incredibly popular salad sold in a local award winning market here in Woodstock, VT. Since they don't give out the recipe, I had to figure it out on my own. But I (and others) believe that my version is infinitely better, and I'm sure you will agree. This light, fresh and healthy salad is perfect for summer days and presents well for BBQ's, potlucks, and dinner parties alike and it is guaranteed to impress and get rave reviews every time.

Whenever I make this salad for guests, I'm always asked for the recipe and my family always requests this. We call it 'The Good Salad.'

Roasted Butternut Squash with Onions, Spinach, and Craisins®

Rating: 4.5 stars 66
A delicious deviation from the typical squash preparation, this recipe has kind of a nutty flavor with or without the nuts. Good as-is, but of course each person can salt and pepper their own serving to taste. The leftovers are good served as a cold salad if you don't like the cooked spinach that results from re-heating. Almonds and walnuts can be used in addition to or instead of the pecans.

Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Macaroni Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 104
The delicious flavors of crisp crumbled bacon and tangy fresh tomato that you love in a BLT sandwich dress up a bowl of macaroni salad that's perfect for a light lunch or side dish.

Cucumber with Sour Cream

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
A marinated cucumber salad that is best made with fresh garden cucumbers when available. Also good as a dip if you chop the cucumbers instead of slicing them.
