A rich and flavorful chip dip!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Rating: Unrated
This is a great salad for a buffet, with interesting textures and southwest flavors combined in one delicious salad. Leftovers store well refrigerated for several days.

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Rating: Unrated
This is a dish I put together for my son, Jordan, who is a huge fan of both tomatoes and mushrooms. The flavors keep blending together, so it is great the day you make it and even better the following day.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Rating: Unrated
An easy to make light salad that can be served with or without chicken for vegetarians.

Panzanella Salad

Rating: Unrated
Italian bread and tomato salad! Capers work great in place of the olives too!

Avocado and Tuna Tapas

Rating: Unrated
Living in Spain I have come across a literal plethora of tapas. This is a light, healthy tapa that goes best with crisp white wines and crunchy bread. This recipe is great for experimenting with a variety of different vegetables, spices, and vinegars.

Roasted Yam and Kale Salad

Rating: Unrated
A bright contrast in flavors makes this salad a favorite among friends and family. The yams have a subtle sweetness that pairs nicely with the caramelized onions and kale.

Greek Pasta Salad

Rating: Unrated
Great summer pasta salad.

Tomato Mozzarella Salad

Rating: Unrated
Mozzarella slices are served with tomatoes, fresh basil, and sprinkled with olive oil. A perfect salad alternative, especially in summer when you can get tomatoes and basil from the garden.

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Rating: Unrated
Steaming the kale removes some of the bitterness. The salad dressing ties all the flavors together. A quartet of super foods (kale, quinoa, avocado, and olive oil) make this a healthy meal!

Inspiration and Ideas

Quinoa Veggie Salad with Zesty Vinaigrette

Rating: Unrated
Quinoa with various veggies and a zesty (and easy) vinaigrette that makes a wonderful salad dressing for any salad. I used one English cucumber instead of 2 normal cucumbers because we prefer the taste. Cook the quinoa with the water as you would normal rice (works in a rice cooker as well).

Russian Beet and Potato Salad

Rating: Unrated
A Russian potato salad with the difference of adding beets and carrots! Use balsamic vinegar instead of champagne vinegar for a different version.

Honey Lime Fruit Salad

Rating: Unrated

This salad is so refreshing and yummy! Seasonal fruit with a touch of lime and honey makes it elegant too! This recipe is also easily doubled or tripled for parties or large family gatherings!
