Lisa's Grapefruit and Avocado Salad
A flavorful recipe, inspired by a salad I had in Austin, Texas at a fancy restaurant. They added ahi in their version, but mine is vegetarian. It is great either way!
Cucumber Salad with Dill Vinaigrette
A fresh and light salad that involves no mayo or sour cream, so it is great for picnics and BBQs! Serve immediately or refrigerate overnight to let flavors blend.
Egg Salad with Avocado
I wanted to make a healthier egg salad. This one uses avocado instead of mayonnaise. Serve in a sandwich or on crackers.
Make sure to use large, ripe avocados and Walla Walla sweet, or Vidalia onions in this recipe. I think you'll like it.
This has always been a crowd pleaser in my home. This is wonderful as an appetizer served on tostadas or even with tortilla chips. Make sure to refrigerate before you serve, it tastes best when very cold. I like to serve on tostadas with a thin layer of mayonnaise for a nice refreshing lunch.
The local taco truck serves their chicken tacos with cabbage, cilantro and lime. This is my attempt to recreate their taco toppings.
Jicama Mango Salad with Cilantro and Lime
A crisp and refreshing jicama salad, this salad goes really well with any Mexican or Asian dish.
Korean Cucumber Salad
When I lived in Korea, I was shown this Korean Cucumber salad, made with cucumbers, green onions, and sesame seeds. Goes good with Bulgogi (Korean Barbecued Beef) from this site!!
Hungarian Cucumber Salad
Great salad to make when you have a ton of cucumbers coming out of the garden. We make this year round but we are real cuke lovers in this family. Let it sit for a few days in the fridge and it's even better! Great make-ahead dish for BBQs and parties.
Curtido (El Salvadoran Cabbage Salad)
Curtido is a salad made out of cabbage and served with El Salvadoran pupusas. Stuff cooked pupusas with the curtido for a delicious treat!
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Rosemary
During the summertime, farmers markets have a great selection of heirloom tomatoes for a reasonable price. This is great as a cold salad, or for a different twist, grill straight on the BBQ for a warm but fresh side dish.
