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.

Tropical Sweet Chili Shrimp Skewers

I find anything with sweet chili sauce utterly addicting! However I'm not crazy about the sheer amount of sugar in the bottled sauce.

But for this variation, I went with Mexican flavors, and it's been an even bigger hit! First you whirr together a few ingredients in a food processor into a 'pesto' of sorts. Then ... Read More

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!
