An off-beat pasta salad made with stuffed pasta, seasonal vegetables, and a spice-forward, golden sesame yogurt sauce.

Summer Corn Salad

A crunchy, sweet no-cook summer corn salad. The salad is a breeze, has a ton of toasted pepitas & sunflower seeds, tossed with a brown sugar lemonade vinaigrette.

Macaroni Salad

A twist on classic macaroni salad - I toss the pasta with a creamy sauce made from sauteed green onions, then add lots of black pepper, arugula, diced apple, and lemon juice to the bowl.

This could very well be my favorite salad recipe from Super Natural Every Day - shaved fennel, arugula, zucchini coins, feta, toasted almonds.

Sea Salt Baked Potatoes

I love this baked potato recipe, topped with well-dressed arugula. A healthier take on the traditional baked potato. Crispy jackets split open to reveal a fluffy white potato interior.

Cucumber Peanut Salad

We picked two new cookbooks to focus on in the 101 Cookbooks Library, and this recipe is inspired by a recipe from one of them. A refreshing chopped cucumber salad loaded with peanuts, spices, coconut, and chiles.

Raw Tuscan Kale Salad

A beautiful, shredded, raw kale salad tossed in a vibrant, lemony-pecorino dressing. From Melissa Clark's new cookbook, In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite. The first thing I made after getting back from Rome.

Salad Recipes

Green Bean Slaw

A nut-studded, slaw-like green bean salad I made for lunch yesterday from a few things I picked up in the nearby shops and stalls here in the Testaccio neighborhood of Rome - moscato-soaked raisins, arugula, perorino cheese, croutons. Plus a few travel photos.
