Fattoush is a Middle Eastern vegetable and herb salad that contains toasted bread, usually pita. You’ll need a vegetable grill basket for this grilled version, to keep the smaller veggies from falling through the grill.
Warm Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad
Warm salads provide a sense of occasion, maybe because we most often eat them at fine dining restaurants. Any night can be an occasion when you make this tangy-peppery salad for family and friends.
Lightened Up Creamy Coleslaw
We’ve made a low fat creamy coleslaw by substituting plain yogurt for the usual full fat mayonnaise. Prepackaged coleslaw mix is a great time-saver; look for it in the produce section.
Organic Rice and Bean Medley Salad
A fabulous vegetarian main course salad. Leftovers make a great lunch.
Citrus and Beet Salad
A colourful, low fat salad you can make year-round. Although our dressing was developed to go with spinach, this recipe works equally well with baby arugula.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Perfect Picnic Green Bean and Potato Salad
Adding the vinegar-based dressing to just-boiled potatoes lets the potatoes soak up all the flavour. Eat warm right after making, or chill and pack for a picnic- no spoiled mayo to worry about!
Tomato Crouton Salad
Our version of panzanella- Italian bread salad- uses Calabrese croutons for added crunch. Just as tasty- if less crunchy!- for lunch the next day.
The Beautiful Salad
Iceberg lettuce is the type most often cut into wedges, but compact heads of Boston make nice wedges, too.
Serve this small salad as part of a Japanese meal, perhaps to accompany a bento box.
