THIS Daikon Salad is quickly making its way up our ‘favourites’ list. Perfect for summer (first tan lines of the year are here! but only on the back of my neck:(, this refreshing simple salad is one that has been on repeat in my house for the past few weeks. Simply dressed with a mouthwatering…

Roasted Edamame Salad

It’s no secret I LOVE my greens, especially topped with some coconut bacon – yum. BIG flavourful salads are my jam, and I could easily eat them for daysss. This Roasted Edamame Salad is the spitting image of Spring. Full of colour, refreshing yet filling, and you guessed it…simple. I don’t know about you all,…

Cabin Cobb Salad

Breakfast, lunch, dinner – this salad can pretty well fit in ANYWHERE. Cabin Cobb Salad. I tacked on ‘cabin’ simply because I eat a few variations of this salad, and brekkie at the cabin is usually (scrambled tofu) eggs + smart bacon. Thanks LightLife! This salad is always a favourite as it sports ALL of…

THE Quinoa Salad

We’ve only ever referenced this salad as THE Quinoa Salad. This recipe, or some variation of, has been in the family since quinoa first made its way onto store shelves – AND it continues to be a hit with family & friends since. We started out by first mixing it with (a whole) cucumber, green…

I may be channeling Spring with these Salad Rolls, but I’m definitely eating them like it’s the dead of winter.I could polish off this platter – yum. These Vietnamese inspired salad rolls are packing many of my favourites…cucumber, red leafy lettuce, purple cabbage, carrot, green onions, jalapeƱo – AND vermicelli rice noodles tossed in a…

BlackBerry Salad Dressing *Oil Free

Serving up a WHOLE lot of colour for you today! As soon as January hit, I’ve been craving citrusy foods. I got my hands on some lovely grapefruits + blackberries, and whipped together this super colourful, tasty, and simple salad one night last week. The blackberries actually flew out of my fridge just as I opened…

Kale, Orange, & Farro Salad

Tis’ the season for mucho feasting! Before I get into it too deep, I’m bringing the greens. I love Christmas, but I’m ALL about the festivities leading up to the big day – games, gatherings, and seasonal traditions. With full schedules, we’re often resorting to platter-like snacking of (nut) cheeses, crackers, home pickled goods, fresh…

Roasted Root Salad

We have snow!…and it seems to be sticking around for awhile. Yet, another variation of one of my fave winter weather salads. It’s all about hearty veg when eating greens during the cooler months – AND this one is full of heart. It’s a package deal…roasted beets, butternut squash, pepitas, quinoa, crispy chickpeas, green onions,…

BrusselSprout Salad

First up, BrusselSprout Salad. Roasted & pan fried brussels are some of our favourites!…but I wanted something fresh on my plate, so I decided to make a simple salad with organic dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, and Toasted Walnut Dressing. It fit in perfectly. That much needed lightly acidic bite to balance out all the other…

Classic (PlantBased) Spinach Salad

Classic (PlantBased) Spinach Salad – deciding on dinner?…salad is always at the top of our list. Although I LOVE to fill my bowl full of delicious combos, spinach salad is one I just like to keep somewhat simple. Between the dressing & smoky tempeh strips (thanks Lightlife!), there’s already a TON of flavour. AND with…

Couscous Stuffed Peppers (Tabbouleh)

We’re still riding this heatwave and the air is filled with smoke – forest fires. I can only hope that everything that needs to escape, will. When it’s THIS hot out, it makes cooking with heat quite interesting. Not only am I downing the water like a tank, but my stove/oven are cooking even hotter…

FriedGreen Tomato & Avocado Salad

FriedGreen Tomato & Avocado Salad – I have the crows to thank for this one. My poor tomato plants have been regularly pillaged by the neighbourhood crow squad. This left me wandering out to the garden each morning to assess the ‘damage’. I collected any tomatoes left behind on the ground – apparently crows don’t…
