Summer Corn Salad

Corn, corn, corn, and what to do with it.

So, it’s the end of summer and I’m sure by now your are wondering what to do with all that fresh corn you are seeing in the markets.

Over the 4th of July I picked up some for 10/$1. I can tell you I bought more than 10 ears at that price. Most of it I cut off the cob to put in the freezer for some corn and shrimp chowder I want to make once the temperatures start falling.

Avocado Bacon and Egg Pasta Salad

What’s not to like about ABE in anything?

Anything that has avocado, bacon and egg together has to be good. Can’t say why this recipe jumped off the page at me but my first thought was boy does that look like a good “potato” salad. And then after another look I thought it was tortellini pasta and then finally after looking at the recipe I realized it was a trottole (spinning top shape) pasta.

I love potato salad and I can’t tell you the last time I’ve made it. My Cauliflower Potato Salad kind of took the place of […]

Basil Pistachio Salad Dressing

Looking for a new salad dressing?

How is your summer going? Ours is going by pretty fast.

They have been my guinea pigs for the past few weeks with a few new recipes I’ve been wanting to try out on someone.

Summer is the perfect […]

Couscous Salad with Strawberry, Avocado and Lime Vinaigrette

Israeli couscous!

So, we’re going to Israel in October and I’m wondering how much couscous I will be eating; I’m sure it will be the Israeli variety, or I hope so anyway. I know I will be eating a lot of hummus; good thing I love the stuff. Especially love my version with white beans. Never had falafel and I guess that will be on the menu too. The only thing I have been warned not to try is “Jesus fish” and I’m kind of picky about the kinds of fish I like so I will NOT try that; […]

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Why have I never posted this recipe?

I don’t know why I’ve never posted this recipe. I guess I thought that maybe everyone has already tried it. I’ve been making this salad for over 20 years and the recipe came from Stop and Smell the Rosemary cookbook which came out in 1996.

This is the perfect summer salad made with fresh baby spinach, some fresh out of the patch sweet strawberries, fresh dill and toasted almonds or pistachios. The dressing has a bit of sugar in it for just the right amount of sweetness to go with the other […]
