Black Bean, Corn, & Tomato Salad with Avocado

This delicious summery salad is adapted from one by the California Avocado marketing board, but apart from the avocado and the lime juice, it contains mostly things that are local to here right now. If you want to cook the beans from scratch, I always think 2/3 to 3/4 of a cup of dry beans are the equivalent of a …

Chinese Style Chicken Salad

This was a pleasant one-dish meal for another hot, dry day. There is something just very appealing about cold noodles in a zingy sauce. I’m calling for you to poach the chicken, but this would be a great use for leftovers from a purchased rotisserie chicken, which in turn is a good way to keep the heat down in the …

Cheesy Pea & Pasta Salad

I have to say right up front that this isn’t the best pea and pasta salad ever; that would be this one, because everything is better with bacon. However, you can’t have bacon with everything, so I will grudgingly admit that this one is pretty good too. It’s still quite rich, lack of bacon not withstanding. I see it more …

Smoked Trout & Wild Rice Salad with Peas

I  always want to do more with wild rice but it is not the easiest thing to find and when you do find it, the price is also a consideration. I was really pleased with how this turned out though; it is the essence of early summer grounded by the earthy wild rice and smoked fish. This is a dish …

Strawberry Cucumber Salad

One of my earliest recipes on this blog was for a salad with strawberries and cucumbers. This take is a little lighter and simpler; a side salad rather than a meal in itself. Still, although I have omitted a great deal of cheese and replaced it with a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds, I was surprised to take a look …

Asparagus Salad with Garlicky Dried Tomato Dressing

I see lots of recipes calling for both asparagus and tomatoes, but I am never really convinced that they go together all that well. In spite of that I decided to try making a dressing that would use up some of our large store of dried tomatoes and last season’s garlic. I really loved the resulting dressing, and it went …
