Dinner Salad with a Poached Egg

In my mid-to-late 20s, there was this salad I used to make myself all the time. I'm talking maybe two or three times a week for months to years. (Katie & Terry probably remember this phase of my life well ­čśé­čĄú). I saw it originally in a magazine somewhere I think, though I can't remember... Continue Reading →

Minty Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Salad

I, like most other people I know, love a juicy summer watermelon. It is just so refreshing and delicious! I remember that my grandfather always used to (and probably still does) put salt on his watermelon, which I thought was absolutely crazy. I thought that salt would ruin the sweet taste. Through the years, I've... Continue Reading →

Peach & Burrata Salad

As promised, here's the recipe for the gorgeous salad hidden in the corner of one of our pictures from Saturday night's Patatas Bravas with┬áSuper Garlic Aioli! Ally's cousin Emily is responsible for this dish, and we're hoping this is the first of many of her creations we'll share on here (you should see some of... Continue Reading →

Southwest Steak Chopped Salad

We eat massive salads for dinner many nights. We never share them, because usually they're not all that organized - it's usually a look in the fridge, pull out some vegetables, and top them with a protein kind of adventure. Since it's Monday and the beginning of the week, we were a little more coordinated.... Continue Reading →

Fresh Avocado & Cucumber Salad

Awhile back I shared one of my favorite lunches, this┬áCouscous Salad. It's pretty easy to make, pretty healthy, and pretty delicious. In that post, I talked about how I find lunch very uninspiring. I still do. I love going out to lunch though... why is it that a sandwich, soup, or salad at a restaurant... Continue Reading →

Two-Way Beet Salad

Beets are one of those vegetables that you either love or hate. I'd had beets just once that I can remember prior to when Selim and I started dating, and I hated them that one time. So for years, I never tasted another beet. Selim likes them a lot and eventually convinced me to try... Continue Reading →

Couscous Salad

I don't know about y'all, but I feel like lunch is kind of a struggle meal. I want to have something that tastes good, is easy to make, is portable to work/school, is pretty healthy, and keeps me full until dinner. That's doable, but sometimes is just a little boring. Lunch just isn't an exciting... Continue Reading →

Mediterranean Cucumber-Zoodle Salad

Have you been introduced to zoodles, the semi-recent food craze and healthy-eater favorite? I love these spiralized "noodles" of zucchini. We've made several dishes with them, and I think they work great as a noodle or grain substitute if you're into that kind of thing. What I don't think however, is that they are "just...
