Elote Salad with Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

We have having a major corn moment and I am in total love.

I used to shy away from corn, mostly because my only exposure to it was the frozen stuff my aunt would serve her kids at daycare. It was way too sweet, way too starchy, and had zero flavor. There are some veggies that I am totally for eating frozen, but corn just is not it. But, now that it’s summer and we have full exposure to the stuff on the cob, I am absolutely in LOVE with adding corn to absolutely everything in a way I never desired before.

Sorry if I’m getting too corny for ya.

Shakshuka Panzanella

Because if there was any day to make a salad that does not seem like a salad, it is today.

We love salads up in here, but, sometimes, you want that salad that is pretending to be something it should be. And a bread salad aka a panzanella definitely fits what we need for quick work week lunches and dins.

It’s a party up in here for sure!

Quinoa Salad with Strawberries and Feta

It’s salad season! Huzzah.

Actually, if I am being COMPLETELY honest, the last thing I want to do this time of year is cook and this recipe has been a long time coming because I usually make it once a week every week during the summer. It has all my fav things and comes together in 30 minutes with MINIMAL cooking.

So who’s with me?! Let’s not cook together!

Lime Marinated Kale Burrito Bowls

It’s a fiesta over here!

I know kale always gets the short end of the stick in the “food” world. First, she was a garnish. Then, she was the ridicule of health food world. BUT, y’all, if you think you don’t like kale salads, then you haven’t LIVED until you tried marinating it in lime juice and lots of spice.

Trust me… I will convert you. That didn’t sound sketchy at all.

Spicy Kale Salad with Hummus Roasted Cauliflower

This is definitely one of those recipes.

It is one of those non-recipes that I make and casually share on Instagram (within the context of it as, hey look! This is what I’m having for dinner)” that prompts comments like “RECIPE!!!!!.” which is admittedly not my favorite style of comment. It reads like an outright demand, and since I’m super polite, I expect a “Please” or “Would you consider sharing this?” in the mix.

Yeah NOPE!

Asian Sesame Brussels Slaw

It’s springtime… and so I fully plan on overdosing on all of the vegetables.

I love spring, mostly because it puts me in a mood to eat lighter. And what better way to enjoy the warmer spring temps than a big old bowl of salad. But not just any salad… this baby is a crunchy, fresh sesame filled wonderland

Who knew you could have feelings about a salad?

Shredded Red Cabbage Salad with Dates and Feta

Freaking fresh to death! You know it!

I’ve been madly working away on recipe testing, fun holiday content, and staying warm in the kitchen with lots of baking. Because it has been so wicked cold out the past few days. So, you know, all good things! And today I’m SO excited to share this salad, a salad that not only works well for meal prep, but would also be a baller Thanksgiving salad.

Double duty at its finest.

Grilled (or Roasted) Romaine Salad with Crispy Chickpeas and Tahini Ranch

How is it almost the end of summer already? Like how?

I guess because my life has been a series of ups and downs over the past two months, it is almost as if I missed the changing of the seasons. I’ve been to the beach a solid ONE time and have only eaten ice cream once this summer. This is a seriously emergency, people, and it needs to be remedied immediately!
