My New Year's Resolution: More Salads

by Jillian Leslie on

Delicious salad recipes

I told my husband that 2014 is going to be "the year of the salad" for us. We are good at eating vegetables. David and I both love them (Lainey is another story), but we typically eat them cooked... sauteed really, unless they're Brussels sprouts, and then we bake them.

But it's starting to feel boring and a little too predictable. I believe it's time we seriously expanded our vegetable repertoire and for me that's expanding into the world of salads. But how? The problem is that when I think about lettuce and dressing, I'm just not that inspired.

Recipe: The Easiest Cold Sesame Noodles

by Jillian Leslie on

This cold sesame appetizer is our go-to recipe for any potluck that we're invited to. What's great about it, is it's simple to make, and can sit out for a while at a party and the flavors just keep getting better.  It got a great earthy flavor from the soba and sesame seeds, with a little bit of heat to make it interesting.

Ingredients:

  • Mujka Design Inc.
  • Party Cup Medley

RECIPE: Awesome Pasta Caprese Salad

by Jillian Leslie on

If you need to put together a super quick appetizer with a lot of flavor, this pasta caprese salad is it!

It's simple to make, and all I recommend is using super fresh ingredients (and not overcooking the pasta).  I use farmer's market cherry tomatoes, yummy virgin olive oil, fresh lemons for the lemon juice, and the best buffalo mozzarella I can find. And I have to say I get so many compliments on this. Here's how to do it:
