• Pancetta, Avocado and Arugula Salad

    April 28, 2021

    I serve a side salad most nights of the week and this dressing is the one I always make. It is the perfect simple vinaigrette. I will sometimes just serve it with greens and nothing else. Other times I will add cherry tomatoes, sliced shallots and goat cheese. But I think my favorite way to…

  • Fall Harvest Salad

    November 14, 2019

    Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I LOVE this time of year. Spending time with my family is my absolute favorite thing about the holidays. However, the food is a close second. Most holiday dishes are quite indulgent (which I am all for) but it is also nice to have some lighter, healthy options as…

  • Citrus Caprese Salad

    February 12, 2019

    Simple yet perfect, caprese salads are one of my favorite dishes. I make them all the time during summer with ripened tomatoes and burrata. Now that we’re in winter, citrus fruits are at their peak season. So I decided to switch it up and add some oranges to the salad. You can add any kind…

    Watermelon is the quintessential summer food. We always have a container of cubed watermelon in the fridge. Cold watermelon on a hot summer day is perfection. Watermelon is delicious and refreshing on its own, but the flavors in this salad can’t be beat. This is a great dish to serve at a dinner party or…

    I love recipes that you can make ahead of time! Since I entertain a lot, make-ahead recipes are a must. This is one of my favorite dishes to serve at a summer BBQ or picnic. The best part is that the longer it sits, the better it gets! I like to make this pasta salad…

  • Mixed Berry and Chicken Salad

    May 21, 2018

    Light, colorful and delicious — this is the perfect summer salad. I really enjoy cooking seasonally. Even though we can get pretty much any fruit all year long here in Southern California, fruits just taste better when they’re in season. My husband and I love going to our local Farmer’s Market on Sunday mornings. Especially during…
