Crunchy Napa Cabbage Salad

Slaw or Salad?

Slaw or salad? We’ve had that discussion before (or I’ve had with myself). I’ve always thought of cabbage as a slaw or coleslaw before but on the other hand I always put some finely shredded red cabbage into salads to add more color. This salad will make a great side dish for any summer gathering.

I came across this salad at aspicyperspective.com webpage when I was looking at her Lemon Chicken recipe I’ll be making in a couple of days. I’m not sure if I will use the coconut flour (I have it) or not. Recently […]

Roasted Beet and Pine Nut Salad

IMG_2247

Beautiful salad and if you keep the beets separated they won’t bleed on each other.

Seems like it was just winter (usually short period of time here in Texas) and now it is springtime with summer just weeks ahead. The winter took havoc on our back yard killing about 1/4th of our plants. Since my husband loves shopping nurseries we will have plenty of shopping and planting to do to get it back in shape. I’m not a fan of hot summer days here in Texas but I will be glad to start using our outdoor kitchen again since […]

Isn’t this a beautiful spiralized salad.

Wow, my blog caught up with me. I had this salad ready to post but had not written anything about it. We had an earlier than I thought trip to Austin to welcome our new grandson (#6). Our daughter was in labor all of about 30 minutes before delivering little Frankie. He’s just the cutest thing.

Then we had a trip to Missouri to check on my mother-in-law and spent a week there, all the time I never looked back at my post to see what was coming up.

So, here’s my newest salad […]

Crunchy vegetables and nuts, how easy is that.

Have you made any New Years resolutions yet? or I guess the question is DID you make any New Year’s resolutions and have you broken them yet?

Guess I could resolve not to go to so many movies a week, but why would I do that, I’m over 60 so why not go as often as I want (at least twice a week) until I run out of movies to watch. I could resolve to exercise more but I have to start doing that anyway because my sciatica problem is into […]

Brussel Sprout Salad with Pumpkin Seeds and Cranberries

img_0345

A beautiful Christmas salad to go with just about anything.

A few weekends ago I was looking for a side dish to go with some burgers we were doing one night when my daughter came for the weekend. What started off as a sautéed Brussels with cranberries and pumpkin seeds and parmesan cheese turned into a crunchy salad with a citrus vinaigrette.

At first this salad was going to have pistachios in it because I had a bag full in my freezer then I thought pumpkin seeds sounds so much fitting for this time of the year and go […]
