Salad

Caramelized Peach Caprese Salad

Caramelized Peach Caprese Salad

Caprese salads are definitely my meal of choice for the summer. An upgraded peach version has been on the middle of my summer to-do list for awhile. However, this dish jumped to the top of the list when I saw this recipe for a caprese salad with caramelized peaches. We didn’t have smoked salt, but I was…

Wedge Salad

Wedge Salad

This is has been on my list to make for so long now. I have the fondest memory of ordering a wedge salad with my mom at a fish house back in San Antonio. I was never the child to order salads, but my mom convinced me to have the wedge, and we both couldn’t…

Pear, Pecan & Pomegranate Seed Salad

Pear, Pecan & Pomegranate Seed Salad

We are starting on our New Year’s resolutions early this year— we’ve picked up running again (side note— it was over 70 degrees and almost too hot to run yesterday) and are working on healthier eating (with liberal amounts of desserts still worked in). The first step towards better eating was this triple-P salad for…

Fall Kale Salad

Fall Kale Salad

We had an amazing kale salad at The Hart and the Hunter, and when cooked properly, I firmly believe there is no better base to a salad than kale (plus cheesy kale chips are delicious). If not cooked properly kale can be a nasty wet mess, but tossed with olive oil and baked until crispy,…

Watermelon, Feta, Mint Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Watermelon, Feta, Mint Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Watermelon definitely isn’t Dustin’s thing, and it isn’t really mine either. But I know watermelon, feta, and mint are a pretty popular combination, so Dustin was a good sport and tried this out with me. Neither of us loved it, but agreed it is definitely a much better way to eat watermelon than we’d ever…

Caesar Salad Dressing

Caesar Salad Dressing

Our Homemade Caesar dressing can be counted as a partial success. We were just slightly off on the flavor because we added waaaay too much garlic. When we bought our garlic, the grocery store was only stocked with purple garlic, something we had never actually purchased before. Note to future self: be more careful when using unfamiliar…

Cornbread Panzanella

Cornbread Panzanella

I really enjoyed the panzanella we made last summer, and looking for a fresh twist on the dish this time around, I decided to make it with cornbread rather than a crusty white bread. I didn’t exactly like any of the recipes I found online, so I combined elements from several different salads and just…

Strawberry Caprese Salad

Strawberry Caprese Salad

Since the arugula we bought petered out and we had to cut it from the dish, this sort of transformed from a salad to an extravagant bruschetta. Toasted, buttered bread with a wonderful fresh basil chiffonade, sliced almonds, fresh mozzarella, sliced strawberries, and a beautiful balsamic & basil olive oil dressing drizzle. It shouldn’t be…

Chopped Stetson Salad

Chopped Stetson Salad

We really enjoyed our visit to Arizona last month. One of the highlight dishes we heard so much about before the trip was the chopped Stetson Salad from Cowboy Ciao that definitely lived up to its hyped up status. Dustin’s mom secured us a copy of the recipe before we left, and we decided to…

Nut Crusted Goat Cheese + Spinach, Avocado & Strawberry Salad

Nut Crusted Goat Cheese + Spinach, Avocado & Strawberry Salad

Best salad ever. It’s sweet, filling, and you definitely get your fill of fruits and veggies for the day. It also has amazing warm and creamy goat cheese cakes resting on all of the colorful stuff. This is about the healthiest we ever get in this household. So here’s what you do. Put a 6-ounce…
