Spinach Salad with Dried Cherries {Cooking Through My Collection}

I am the first to admit that side dishes are often lacking in creativity at my house. We have side dishes with most of our meals, but I tend to make the same ones over and over again. And I am guessing I am not the only that has this problem. Often we focus so much on the main part of the meal that we […]

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad. Delicious! Really there is not much else to say about this salad. I am not normally a fan of fruit with my greens or with my meat. In general I prefer my fruit by itself or in a dessert, however I love this salad. The sweet strawberries with the fresh spinach and the tangy dressing just go together. It is the perfect […]

BLT Salad {Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Salad with Buttermilk Dressing}

BLS Salad is a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, but in salad form with creamy buttermilk dressing. It is pure deliciousness. I think I could eat this salad everyday.

I have a feeling this salad will be on our menu often during the spring and summer. […]

Homemade Croutons

Mustard Vinaigrette

One of my favorite meals or sides dishes this time of year is salad It is a quick and easy meal to serve that is also healthy. Plus it is a vegetable type dish or meal that my kids love. One of the easiest ways to change up your salad is with the dressing you put on it, especially if you make your own dressing or vinaigrette. […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Salad

Bacon, ground beef, and cheese all in one salad with a mustard dressing on top, how can you go wrong?! If I serve salad as a main dish it has to be a hearty salad with a lot of toppings. No light salads, otherwise known as girly salads, are allowed for a main course at my house. If I am serving salad for dinner it […]

Quinoa (pronounces keen-wa), is an ancient plant that is native to South American and is often used in South American cooking. It is one of the healthiest “grains” that you can eat. And although many refer to quinoa as a grain, it actually not a grain at all, but a seed. Quinoa is common in gluten free cooking because it is naturally gluten free, but […]

This is just a basic taco salad, but I gave the dressing a bit of a different twist with a green […]
