Raw Carrot and Cantaloupe Salad with Arugula and Blood Orange Vinaigrette

Over the last few weeks I’ve been (obsessively) experimenting with the amazing combination of delicate shaved melon and hearty raw vegetables in my salads…I can’t get over the contrasting textures! This round was carrots and cantaloupe, but stay tuned for a few more recipe variations that will likely pop up over the summer… Raw Carrot and […]

Rice Paper BLT Stack with Avocado and Fresh Basil

This is a great recipe if you’re craving a little BLT action minus the meat and carbs.  To be clear, I’m not about to make some claim that faux bacon tastes just like real bacon…because it doesn’t and never will.  Don’t go into this recipe expecting that; just think of it as a meat-free alternative and take it for […]

Fresh Pea and Fennel Salad with Coconut Yogurt and Ancient Grains

Daikon Radish and Avocado Salad with Blood Orange Vinaigrette

More often than not, the most delicious meals are the least complicated.  After getting some daikon radishes in my SPUD box the other week, I’ve been experimenting with them all over the place.  Naturally, they made it into one of my daily mishmash salad creations and the result was pretty epic! This salad is quite […]

Raw Beet and Pear Salad with Orange Shallot Vinaigrette

Root vegetables inundate my fridge (and my salad recipes) around this time every year.  Although I prefer the intense crunch of raw beets in my salads, this recipe is also delicious served warm with sliced roasted beets…so try it however you prefer! Raw Beet and Pear Salad with Orange Shallot Vinaigrette (adapted from A Sweet Pea Chef) […]

Watermelon Radish and Cantaloupe Salad with Yogurt Dressing

The inspiration for this salad came from some beautiful organic watermelon radishes that popped up in my SPUD delivery box the other week.  As odd as it sounds, melon and radish actually make a wonderful salad combination; the sweet and soft cantaloupe balances out the crunchy and spicy radish quite perfectly. Since this salad is equal parts […]
