Asian Inspired Chicken Salad

I’m so excited that we’re mere weeks away from lettuce gardening season. I’ve grown the best-tasting green leaf, red leaf, and mixed spring green lettuces in my garden the last few years. There’s nothing else like it. If you think homegrown tomatoes are good, garden grown lettuces really put the store bought varieties to shame! I’ve developed many salad recipes to use up my fresh spring lettuce. This Asian Inspired Chicken Salad is one of the best. Salads make a quick and easy dinner for busy weeknights, and are particularly great if you’re following a low carb meal plan. I always feel like...

This Whole30 compliant salad is cheese-free and delicious as can be. Grapefruit, fennel and hints of Asian influence give these greens all the flavor they need. 0

Mixed Greens Salad with Fennel & Grapefruit {Whole30 Compliant}

Before we get into this recipe for Mixed Greens Salad with Fennel & Grapefruit (which I’ve made Whole30 compliant by omitting any kind of cheese), I want to ask for a quick follow on Facebook. We’re a small blog trying to go big, and social media is a great way for you to share the Dish-y recipes you love! I usually write salad recipes to stand in as a side dish, and this one follows suit. Now, you could easily double any of these salad recipes and throw some protein on top, like grilled chicken or salmon. Then you could call it a...

Make Marinated Greek Salad Skewers for a fresh and delicious small plate featuring summer vegetables and tasty feta cheese. With made-from-scratch dressing, this appetizer pleases even the most refined palate. 0

Marinated Greek Salad Skewers for Small Plates

I’m so into small plates right now. Although salads could technically be called small plates and we eat them like appetizers, I dig the idea of condensing a salad down to a few bites—particularly for a cocktail party or soirée. I love Greek salads, so I started there. Hence, we have Marinated Greek Salad Skewers. I’ve scouted out several wonderful small plates made with meats and cheeses, even bread. Meaty appetizers present plentifully in blogland. I keep my eye out for tasty small plates featuring vegetables, but they can elude even the most savvy recipe researcher. Summer creates the best opportunity...

Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System is low in fat and high in protein thanks to Jovial Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Rigatoni pasta. 0

Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System

My new recipe, Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System, is a little special. Not just because it’s delicious and it’s another recipe for the 3-in-1. It’s special because it’s made with a new kind of pasta that I’m really excited about. I made this chicken parm dish using Jovial 100% Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Rigatoni. I’m excited about this pasta is because it’s made using a true ancient grain. Einkorn wheat is still the grain nature always intended. It hasn’t been hybridized to contain more gluten for fluffy baked goods. There’s a picture right on the box showing the size of...

This recipe for Mixed Greens with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette from Dish-y.com is a light and refreshing way to use up fresh greens from the garden. 0

Mixed Greens With Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

Gardening season is here. That means I’m about to have more lettuce than I know how to use up. I’ve been building my collection of recipes using spring greens all winter long. And this recipe for Mixed Greens with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette is one of the more delicious ways I’ve come up with to use the bounty of fresh spring greens coming my way. In the last few years, I’ve become pretty accustomed to making salads as side or main dishes anywhere from 1-4 times per week. They’re so easy, and I love having the salad ingredients on hand for quick...

Arugula with Cranberry Vinaigrette is a green salad with a great mix of peppery and tart flavors, and makes a wonderful healthy side for winter meals. Also a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce from holiday gatherings. 0

Arugula with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Salads have become an expression of creativity on my dinner table. I love working with all kinds of greens, but arugula was one that wasn’t getting much of the spotlight in my kitchen. A little bit about Arugula Arugula is known widely for its peppery taste. Although baby arugula is less peppery than the mature counterpart, it’s still pretty peppery. It really needs a good combination of complementary flavors to go with it. This peppery-tasting arugula reminds me of my recipe for Goat Cheese with Cracked Peppercorn Cranberry Relish that I published for Thanksgiving in 2014. It was the combo of...

Mixed Greens Salad with Apple, Goji & Bright Vinaigrette Recipe from Dish-y.com 0

Mixed Greens Salad with Apple, Goji & Bright Vinaigrette

It’s the middle of winter, I’m feeling motivated to eat well, and there currently aren’t many options for in-season produce. It’s a great time of year to put the power of dried bulk fruits to work, and I have been wanting to make a great salad with goji berries for quite some time now. Today’s the day. Did you know that goji berries are hailed as one of the most nutritionally-rich foods in the world? When I first heard about these berries almost 10 years ago, it was pretty difficult to get your hands on goji berries. But now I can...

Grandma’s Oil And Vinegar Salad Recipe

Food is one of those things that has the awesome power to send you back in time. It can evoke vivid memories just from a simple taste or smell. My grandma’s oil and vinegar salad does that for me. Whenever we eat this salad, I’m always instantly transported back to the Sunday family dinners we had when I was a child. Grandma did nearly all of the cooking, and she was good at it. I think that’s where I get some of my passion for cooking. I wish she were still here to cook for me, because I know I’d...
