This is now a classic kale salad, first published several years ago, back when kale salads were kinda new and weird. It’s still one of my very favorites for being simple, clean and bright, and just salty and rich enough to be memorable. It holds its own next to a beefy steak or humble roast…

Grilled Watermelon Salad with Tomatoes & Charred Beets | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP Adaptable)

I hope you had a lovely July 4th weekend! Isn’t summer just The Best? I did all of my favorite things – farmers market, slept in, walked, hit golf balls, created recipes, wrote, took pictures, sat in the sun, tidied my house, sipped fauxtails, read. The highlight was spending the 4th at Stephanie March’s with…

Vietnamese Pork Skewers

Hi friends! I’m assuming that you have your grills fired up (and if not, these are super easy to make indoors) so I wanted to remind you of these beautiful little flavor bombs, especially because fresh herbs and lettuces have popped up at farmers markets – yay! Make ’em spicy or make ’em AIP (autoimmune protocol-friendly);…

Cold Peanut-Sesame "Noodles" | Fresh Tart (grain-free)

I had the pleasure of chatting about cooking and healthy eating tips with a group of smart and lovely people at Weber Shandwick PR this past Friday. Given we were talking in an office conference room, there wasn’t the option to cook a dish for them, so I made the group an easy and flavor-packed cold dish that…

Slow-Cooked Halibut with Warm & Cold Salad | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP-adaptable)

Slow-Cooked Halibut with Warm & Cold Salad | Fresh Tart

This dish of divine represents the beauty of unplanned cooking with friends. You know those meals, usually last-minute, thrown-together affairs – the ones where one friend has some vegetables and another a piece of meat and another some fresh herbs and wine. Spontaneity (and cocktails) draw seemingly disparate elements into a lovely and memorable meal, with everyone agreeing: we HAVE…

Squash, Beet & Apple Salad | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Have I ever shared with you my purpose? That’s a rhetorical question because I know that I haven’t. For someone who puts a LOT of my life out into the ether – at least my food life – I’ve held much closer my dreams and plans for the future. It’s icky scary to put out…

Shrimp Chopped Salad with Figs, Squash & Bacon | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I was going to call this End-of-Summer Salad but that seemed a bit too bleak. The markets are still loaded with peak-season produce at least for a couple more weeks – chin up!To me, a good entree salad is loaded with a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. If it doesn’t hit more than a…

Sweet & Sour Broccoli Salad | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP-friendly)

Tonight is National Night Out and given that Minneapolis often ranks number one in participation, you may very well be attending a neighborhood block party this evening. If so, I have just the salad for you, a real crowd pleaser that comes together quickly and stays crunchy and appealing on a buffet. You might recognize…

Roasted Cauliflower “Couscous” (AIP, Paleo)

Roasted Cauliflower "Couscous" | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

This side dish is a twist on the couscous salad that changed my life. For years, my go-to potluck contribution was a couscous salad, loaded with roasted vegetables, dried fruit, cheese, and nuts. It doesn’t wilt on a buffet and pairs well with barbecued meats and other salads. I made it for my own parties,…

Coleslaw with Caper-Anchovy Dressing | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Are you dreaming of a July 4th barbecue feast? If you are, I have a few ideas for you. Creamy coleslaw is some of the best picnic fare around, but a vinegary slaw can be a tart change of pace, improve while sitting on a buffet, and even add a bit of polish to a…
