Southern Style Potato Salad

Southern Style Potato Salad

Southern Style Potato Salad One of my favorite things about this time of year is that the weather is great for cooking on the grill or picnicking.  As much as I love cooking, sometimes I don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  When the weather is nice, it makes you want to enjoy the outdoors.  So this recipe for Southern Style Potato Salad will make sure you get to enjoy nature on a full belly.  It...

Cucumber Onion Salad

Cucumber Onion Salad

Cucumber Onion Salad My mother used to make a salad similar to this when I was growing up.  She added more vinegar and she also added sugar.  I may get my Southern Girl rights revoked by saying that I am not a fan of adding sugar to some traditional dishes that Southern Cooks add sugar to.  Cornbread for example.  My daughter actually prefers the sweet yellow cornbread (I call it the JiffyMix or School Lunch Cornbread lol).  My sister adds...

Chickpea Orzo Salad

Chickpea Orzo Salad

Chickpea Orzo Salad Something about salad just makes me think summer.  This Chickpea Orzo Salad is no exception.  It literally screams summer.  The crunchy cucumbers and sweet grape tomatoes make this salad really refreshing.  This salad would be a great light lunch or side to grilled meats.  And if you are looking for a dish to take along to any summer cook-outs you may be going to this summer, you definitely need to make this and take it along.  Your vegetarian...

Potato Salad

Potato Salad

Potato salad is a summer staple of the South.  No picnic or family get together would be the same without a big 'ol bowl of Tater Salad. There are so many recipes for potato salad and every family probably has their own "secret" recipe.   My sister makes the best potato salad.  She is so sweet because we have a couple of picky eaters in the family and she will make a batch of potato salad, scoop some into a...

Grilled Corn and Black Eyed Pea Salad

Grilled Corn and Black Eyed Peas Salad

Nothing says summer like a nice refreshing salad.  This salad combines grilled corn, black eyed peas, tomatoes and onions in a tangy olive oil lemon sauce.  You could serve this salad with grilled meat or also as a dip with tortilla chips.  The next time you grill out and have left over corn, don't waste it by tossing it out (my pet peeve is wasting food), repurpose it in this Grilled Corn and Black Eyed Pea Salad. Try it out and...

Kısır

Kısır is a delicious and light salad that can also be served as a meze (Turkish appetizer).  You start out with fine bulgur wheat and add in chopped tomatoes, parsley, mint, green onions, peppers, pepper paste, lemon juice and/or pomegranate molasses, olive oil and salt. You can find the pomegranate molasses online at Bakkal International or at most Middle Eastern Grocery Stores.   This dish is perfect for a picnic because it can be served chilled or at room temperature....

Apple, Apricot, Pecan Salad with Orange Vinaigrette and Gorgonzola crumbles

I had a really yummy salad a couple of weeks ago in Woodstock, GA at Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza & Grill.  It was so good that I wanted to try to recreate it.  Now while looking at their online menu, I realized it is similar but different. My Apple, Apricot, Pecan Salad with Orange Vinaigrette and Gorgonzola Crumbles turned out great.  I actually made some Chipotle Honey Wings to go with it and it went great together.  I will post...

Kereviz Salatası (Celery Root Salad)

  This past weekend my brother, my sister and I drove over to Atlanta to the Buford Highway Farmer's Market.  It was a dream come true for "foodies" like us.  My sister discovered it while on the internet and wanted us to go and check it out.  It is sad to say that we had to drive 2+ hours to find excellent quality produce and great international food items but it was well worth it.  They have any kind of...

Teriyaki Salmon Salad with Citrus Dressing

    While my daughter and I were shopping the other day.  We were looking at the packages of salad mix and she was just saying she wished they would have some that was half Spring Mix and half Spinach.  I looked down and what did I find?  Exactly what she had just said.  It was a huge package and since there were not any smaller packages, we went ahead and bought the big one.  The salad was so pretty...

Iceberg Wedges with Avocado Ranch Dressing

  If you are like me, you may be thinking Iceberg Lettuce is so boring.  I will be honest - I have never been a big fan of plain 'ole Iceberg Lettuce.  But let's face it - it is much more economical than organic spring mix or baby green salad (both of which I love!)  I hope you will try this light and refreshing Iceberg Wedges with Avocado Ranch Dressing.  I think it will change the way you think of...

Purslane Salad Semizotu Salatası

      Purslane, which is known as Semizotu in Turkey is actually considered a weed in the USA.   The health benefits are extraordinary.  You can read about those benefits at Mother Earth News. Purslane Salad Semizotu Salatası is a healthy and delicious salad you can share with your family and friends.   As you all know by now, family is so important to me.  I have the best sister in the whole world! Of course, I am sure all...

Mercimek Salata or Lentil Salad

  It has been a long while since I have been able to prepare a dish, photograph it, and get it posted.  Today, I am making a FRESH start with a really reFRESHING salad.  This Mercimek Salata or Lentil Salad would be great for a light lunch or as a side dish with grilled meats.  It has an interesting tangy flavor that I think you will enjoy.  If you cannot find Pomegranate Molasses or Syrup, you could probably substitute balsamic vinegar...
