Grilled Chicken BLAT Salad with Avocado Ranch Dressing

I really feel like you can never have too many flavor packed salads in your repertoire! And it's just a bonus if your salad includes healthy ranch dressing. As a kid I was a ranch dressing fanatic, I mean I would eat pretty much anything if it was drowned in ranch. In fact... my cousin and I were famous in ...

Italian Antipasto Pasta Salad

I've been really branching out with different pasta salads this summer, and we've been loving every single version. Pasta salads are pretty much the ultimate summer food since they're incredibly portable. They also keep well for a few hours or even overnight in the fridge. Besides picnicking and barbecues, pasta salads are also awesome for all sorts of adventuring. You ...

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Salad

We grill a lot every summer, but this summer has been nonstop grilling with the heat wave we've had! I can't even bear to turn the stove on, and I even cringe just boiling water for coffee every morning. Luckily there's pretty much nothing you can't grill into a meal. This recipe is nice and simple because the teriyaki sauce ...

Mexican Chipotle Chicken Caesar Salad

We make some sort of Caesar Salad pretty much every single week! It started off as Tyler's obsession, but it quickly became mine as well. We usually make The Best Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad for date nights in because we can make it without thinking or looking at a recipe, which gives you plenty of time for catching up. But ...

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

While we love to make Our Favorite Pasta Salad all the time during the summer, I've been feeling the need to branch out a bit. Sometimes you're just in the need for something different, and this Mediterranean Pasta Salad really hits the spot. It's jam packed with juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, crumbed feta cheese, and it's all doused in an herbed ...

Grilled Romaine Salad with Strawberries and Fennel Vinaigrette

This recipe was inspired by a request for a salad with grilled romaine. I had a salad once in a restaurant that had grilled romaine in it, and it was so awesome! But somehow I've just never translated the concept into my at home cooking. So I'm so glad I had this request because it's high time to add grilled ...

Healthy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

This is my interpretation of the classic broccoli salad - but there's no mayonnaise in this version! Not that I have anything against mayo, (I love homemade mayo) but I've never cared for it as a salad dressing. However, I do like things creamy as a general rule, so I used avocado to make this deliciously creamy dressing. I've been ...

Tropical Spinach Salad with Creamy Coconut Lime Dressing

I'm really quite predictable with my seasonal cravings. With every fall that arrives I'm overly enthusiastic about all things apple and of course sweet potatoes. But as the months wear on into winter I start longing for the summer produce again. I know there's things in season for a lot of people, but from where I'm sitting, the world outside ...

Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I had the best lunch last week at a local Thai place that serves incredibly flavorful food. It was one of those meals that you just keep thinking about, and I knew I was going to need to recreate what I had to share with you too. So the thinking about lunch turned into an obsession, and I cancelled the ...
