March 7, 2015

This recipe is great because its easy and quick to make, you can serve it cold, and goes well with any Mexican main course.  Its also good for a quick lunch if you’re in a hurry!

**Note – it’s a good idea is to make this the night before you want to eat it so that everything has time to marinate in the dressing!

Here’s what you’ll need for this simple tasty vegan recipe.

Seasonal Couscous

March 2, 2015

A few years ago I was to the point where every time I thought of the word “salad”, I thought I was going to shoot myself.  When I first went vegan, I ate nothing but salad for the first 6 months because I had no idea what to eat.  However, I started getting creative and realized there are endless possibilities when it comes to salad…and they don’t all have to have the leafy green stuff in them!  Here is a great recipe for an autumn-style couscous salad that is perfect for all seasons.  Serve it cold or at room temp, any time of year.  Its also a great side dish to take to a party because its got a little something for everyone in it!

Chickless Chicken Salad

Ain’t nothin better than a chicken salad sandwich.  I love mayo and that was one of the hardest things for me to give up when I became vegan, but no excuses, right?  Well, I’ve come up with a recipe for chicken salad that is pretty damn good and I think you’ll love it.  Here you go:

Tropical Fruit Salad

March 1, 2015

This is a great salad on its own or served with a delicious savory dish.  Easy to make and everybody loves it!  Best when the fruits are in season.  Don’t freak out when you see black pepper on the ingredients list – black pepper simply brings out the flavors in fresh fruit!  This makes a nice-sized fruit salad, but feel free to half the recipe if its just for you and 1 other person.

I was going to start this recipe off by talking about what a classic American dish the Waldorf Salad is.  Its THE perfect refresher snack on a hot day and gobbled up at 4th of July pic-nics.  But that isn’t the reason I posted it.

Ok, so…truth be told, I thought of this recipe because I’m obsessed with Gossip Girl.  I was watching the season 3 finalé and found myself engulfed with two things:  Blair Waldorf and a Waldorf salad.  Alas…here’s the most perfect recipe that (I think) exists.
