Romantic Valentine's Day Salad
The little red hearts are cut out of cooked beet to turn this simple salad into a lovely romantic Valentine's Day appetizer. In Italy, lettuce is usually only dressed with olive oil and salt, but you can of course use another dressing. Fresh mozzarella cubes make a nice addition.
This eclectic salad is so easy and tasty you'll want to eat it everyday! My boyfriend said it was the best he's ever had. Full of aphrodisiacs, this salad is perfect for Valentine's Day or a romantic evening at home. For more aphrodisiacs, add asparagus, avocado or pine nuts.

Stacked Tomato and Burrata Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad I
Someone brought this salad to a pot luck dinner and I had to have the recipe. I have made it many, many times since then and I have been asked for the recipe every time I bring it somewhere. It is also a great way to get kids to eat spinach!
Grilled Hearts of Romaine
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.
