Roasted Cauliflower “Couscous” (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 15, 2014 at 4:03pm

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 (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…

Fall Steak Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Avocado & Maple Vinaigrette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 8, 2013 at 2:21pm

As a kid, I thought salad was the food women ate to punish themselves into dropping a few pounds. I used to eat French fries with a knife and fork to pretend I was eating salad, just to feel like a grown-up. I clearly had a lot to learn, including the fact that a well-made…

Broccoli Salad, Ladygating Style

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 4, 2013 at 1:42pm

I’ve been in a rut. Not a rut I’m complaining about – eating out in restaurants with friends or cooking here at the house – but after a ridiculous blast of a day yesterday, I realize that I’d needed someone to kick my rutted butt into the great outdoors, with some fire, meat, and beer….

Breakfast Salads

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 8, 2013 at 5:00pm

Salad for breakfast is a festive way to kick off a day, as well as to work in an extra serving or two of greens and other vegetables. I’ve set a little summer challenge for myself – therefore these (low-resolution, sorry) Instagram pics (hashtagged #breakfastsalad, add yours if you like!) – to have a salad…

White Bean Salad with Tomato & Avocado aka Power Outage Pantry Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 25, 2013 at 4:40pm

Is your power back on? Hooey what a series of storms. It always breaks my heart to see grand old trees downed, especially if their falling damages homes and cars. I hope that you escaped damage and if not, that you’re back on track soon. After losing power, I’m thinking ahead to the next outage….

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2012 at 4:10pm

While the rest of my garden is toast, the parsley lives on, just begging me to make tabbouleh salad. Except tabbouleh is made with bulgur, which is wheat, which I can’t eat. Damn it! Enter quinoa, the grain that is conveniently a gluten-free seed, hey. I’m not as obsessed with quinoa as some, but in…
