Grilled Peach, Chicken & Arugula Salad

May 30th, 2014 · 3 Comments · Barbecue, Chicken, Dinner, Fruit, Grilled, Lunch, Salad

Barbecue season is here! To celebrate, Carlene and I were asked to talk about barbecuing on CBC Radio’s Saskatoon morning show, and to share some barbecue recipes that differed from the usual steak and burgers. Although we already have a fair bit of unique BBQ recipes on the blog, it got me thinking about the […]

Winter Squash Salad

February 18th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Appetizer, Dinner, Lunch, Salad, Side, Vegetable

Typically in winter I crave warm, hearty comfort foods like many others, but for whatever reason, this time I was really craving a salad. Given how cold and snowy it was outside, I figured, why not make this a comforting “winter” salad! With “wintery” ingredients already on hand, like kale and acorn squash, I knew […]

Apple Cider Vinaigrette

February 18th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Easy, Salad

To accompany the Winter Squash Salad I was conjuring up, I decided to whip up an Apple Cider Vinaigrette. I wanted a vinaigrette that had some pretty bright flavours, but still added to the “comfort” of the winter squash salad. The resulting vinaigrette was light, tart, with a touch of sweetness and hints of apple […]

Savoury Watermelon Salad

I have had visions of creating a salad in this style for quite some time and finally got around to actually doing it the other day! Along with fancying up the presentation of a watermelon salad, I wanted to try marinating watermelon and this was the perfect opportunity! Initially I had plans to add some […]

After making the amazing Bacon & Blue Cheese Steak the other day, rather then just heat up the leftovers, I wanted to make something delicious and blog-worthy! Continuing on with the blue cheese and bacon theme, I settled on making a delicious steak salad with bacon blue cheese dressing for lunch! It was great! Fresh […]

Smoked Salmon Potato Salad

Here is a recipe I created the same day I made the delicious Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese. Given that I wanted to keep things grilled cheese focused during April, I have kept from posting it until now! Although for anybody following me on Instagram, you might remember seeing it! As I have previously mentioned, […]

The Greek Grilled Cheese

April 22nd, 2013 · No Comments · Cheese, Dinner, grilled cheese, Lunch, National Grilled Cheese Month, Salad, Sandwich, Vegetable

I’m stepping out of my usual ooey gooey, melty grilled cheese territory with this one! It’s a veggie packed, crunchy, creamy grilled cheese, and it’s delicious! A traditional greek salad, in sandwich form! Since feta is a more solid cheese, you don’t get that stringy meltyness from it when it heats up, instead it retains […]

Mustard Greens Salad

February 13th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Easy, Salad

To go along with the Lemon Pepper Seared Tuna, I decided to try mustard greens and made this salad. The mustard greens are fairly bitter, so I paired it with a sweet lemon vinaigrette.

Purple Cabbage & Apple Slaw

January 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment · Dinner, Pork, Salad, Sandwich, Side, Vegetable

To go along with the pulled pork Carlene was making for our Sunday family supper, I wanted a bright, tangy slaw to contrast the rich, smokey pulled pork flavour. With that idea in mind, I went with a cabbage/apple slaw, and started mixing in ingredients until I got what I was looking for!

Even though I love salad, for whatever reason, I never make it for myself. With that realization, I decided it was time to experiment. After tossing some ideas around (bad pun?), this is what I came up with!
