Asian "Tuna" Salad (VEGAN)

Asian “Tuna” Salad (Vegan)

Asian “Tuna” Salad doesn’t sound like a vegan recipe, but  it is.  The “fishless” tuna that I used for this recipe was Loma Linda Sesame Ginger Fishless Tuna.  I purchased this product as part of my pre-vegan shopping trip.  I wanted to make sure my pantry contained some simple ingredients that I could use to put together simple meals on nights when life is crazy.  […]

Shrimp Louie Salad

Shrimp Louie

Shrimp Louie is another salad that I first learned about during visits to Castagnola’s Lobster House in Santa Barbara.  The salad is simple to prepare, cool, crunchy, and very satisfying.  The combination of the sweetness from the shrimp and the heat from the green onions and radishes tantalizes your taste buds and makes this a perfect dinner salad for a hot summer evening. 

Tuna Stuffed Avocado Salad

When it’s warm outside, there’s nothing better in the evening, or for lunch, than an entrée salad.  This recipe was inspired by a recent trip to Mountaineer Days in Wrightwood, California.  After the event had shut down, Bus Boy and I decided to stop at the Grizzly Cafe for dinner before driving home.  He ordered his usual burger and fries.  I ordered a stuffed avocado […]

Chef’s Salad in a Jar

I am continuing my series of salads in a jar this week with the Chef’s Salad.  The Chef’s Salad’s origins are often disputed, but it may have been based upon a 17th and 18th century dish called  Salmagundi which was a salad composed of meat, eggs, and vegetables served with a vinaigrette.  Some say the Chef’s Salad was inspired by the Cobb Salad invented at […]

Antipasto Salad in a Jar

I know that I keep posting about salads in a jar, but I can’t help myself.  I really like making them because they look so pretty.  They taste good, too, and if I’m careful about what I put into them, they can be friendly for my waistline.   The possibilities are limitless. A few weeks ago, I went out to eat at one of my favorite […]

The salad in question was […]

Grilled Chicken Salad With Watermelon?

It all started with a bunch of inexpensive watermelons.  Watermelons are the perfect summer food.  They come in their own package.  They’re loaded with juice which helps to quench your thirst.  They’re low in calories, and you only need a knife to cut them up so you can eat them.   More civilized folks might want to consider using a bowl and a fork, but […]
