  • Minted Melon Spring Salad

    Arugula, Mache, Dandelion Greens, Pea Shoots and Water Cress are some of my favorite Spring Greens, and I can't wait to start celebrating Spring with them!  As I visit my local co-op, I'm starting to find fresh greens in all their glory. These greens inspire me. I love to make use of each one in my Spring salads.  For a new Easter Brunch serving idea, I decided to use some darling little clay flower pots to compose my brunch salads. Prepare to fall in love. The sweet, salty, and creamy white Sartori Montamore cheese is perfection when mingled with the...

  • Lemon Plum Goodness for a Mid-Winter Salad

    The minute I spied these bright little pesticide-free Chilean Lemon Plums, with their vibrant canary yellow skin and blushing scarlet pointed tails, ta-da! Immediate salad inspiration! The perfect way for us chilled Minnesotans to break up the mid-winter below-zero blues is to make a delicious salad chock full of color, vitamin A, vitamin C and all of the rich antioxidant filled plums, greens, blueberries and walnuts! I have been craving my Blueberry Basil Dressing lately, so in using some of my winter pantry goods, I opt to add some dried blueberries and crunchy raw walnuts. For a bit of complimentry color and texture...

    This is a great, creative way to gift a few, good friends a "Salad Luncheon."

  • Fresh Fall Fig Salad

          With the leaves changing and their colors peaking, a certain crisp smell of autumn fills the air.  Picking the last of the green tomatoes, I'm anxiously awaiting the brussles and then it's time to clean out the garden and make ready for the cold weather to come. I look forward to this "sweater weather" and welcome foods that are harvested in the fall such as winter squash, pumpkins, apples, pears, and "fresh figs."  I purchased a dozen or so fresh Black Mission Figs from the River Market in Stillwater, Minnesota, last week and quickly created this recipe....

  • An "Honorable Mention" Three Bean Salad

    I never get tired of eating fresh green beans in the summertime! I have fond memories as a child looking forward to my Grandpa Sullivan arriving at our little summer cabin with a great big bag of his freshly picked green beans for us to help him prepare for our summer supper. We would give momma a break from at least 4 of the 7 kids, and sit with Grandpa down on the dock with a big silver colander on his lap. We sat with our tootsies in the lake tipping beans with Grandpa while eagerly reminiscing over our agate...
