Sure, salads are easy to make. But making the same salads over and over can get pretty boring. You want to elevate your palate to actually enjoy what your eating. Some salads I repeat but many times, I come up with new salads, more often. Whether I came up with a new idea or just using leftover vegetables to make a salad. Here are 6 easy salads to try at home.
Corn, Kale and Tomato Salad served with lemon pepper salmon. This salad contains just 3 ingredients! Easy, delicious and perfect to serve with salmon. This is one of those dishes that are perfect to make any day, but especially on those busy weeknights. I love to cook but sometimes it feels like a chore instead [...]
My last post was a Blackened Chicken Salad with Feta Cheese recipe. Today's recipe, is a Blackened Shrimp Salad with Red Kidney Beans. Same seasoning but a completely different salad.

I was thinking of what to call this salad. Besides the color orange, we have the colors of the rainbow in this salad. I decided on calling it the Rainbow Roasted Vegetable Salad. Here we have red peppers and red onions. The onions look purple. Not sure where red comes in! Then there is broccolini and kale, corn and chickpeas and lastly, the blue cheese. This salad was so filling and so good! I went shopping for the ingredients for a second time. On my list for dinner this week, AGAIN!
Chicken can become boring especially when you have it most days of the week. Chicken is versatile and you can serve it in so many ways. One of my go to meals is corn salsa served over grilled chicken thighs. It is simple and super tasty. If you read my blogs you may have noticed a pattern here. EASY and SIMPLE meals with TONS of flavor. That's my motto.
I made a cilantro sauce marinated in chicken and mixed the sauce into a corn orzo salad. Cilantro by far is my favorite herb. I use it on just about every dish. If a dish calls for basil or parsley I end up using cilantro. Why? Because I always have it stocked. I can't live without it. Three things I always have in my kitchen is cilantro, lemons or limes and fresh parmesan cheese. Must haves, to make any dish!
