Warm Rice Herb Salad with Snow Peas

Warm Rice Herb Salad with Snow Peas

Whole grains are perfect for a carb addict like me – I mean, who else would put croutons in their rice? The slow cooked garlic in this dish becomes buttery, and mixed with the fresh herbs it explodes with a complex flavor in each forkful (especially the savory sweetness of the mint)....
Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Baby spinach is a staple at my house – maybe I’m a wannabe Popeye the Sailor Man, who knows. Anyway, no sailor ever ate this salad while saving the world or he might have just stayed home to eat! The strawberries are fresh, onions spicy, and pine nuts slightly crunchy…when you drizzle...

Panzanella

Panzanella

We love bread at my house…so a bread salad is pretty ideal! It’s a perfect way to use your leftover stale bread. I use three-cheese bread from the bakery, but if you can’t find it, just add some grated Asiago cheese to the finished dish. Panzanella is so refreshing. 5-6 slices of...
