Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

Broccoli Cauliflower Salad

It’s always nice to have a few easy no-cook side dishes to make when the weather is hot, or you don’t feel like cooking. This broccoli cauliflower salad combines fresh raw veggies, crunchy nuts, creamy dressing, and of course bacon. Everyone knows everything's better with bacon. This salad is super easy to make; the hardest part is chopping all the veggies. Be sure to use only the florets from both the broccoli and the cauliflower.

Raspberry Pecan Salad

Raspberry Pecan Salad

Fresh raspberries, crunchy pecans, and salty feta cheese are what makes this salad one of the best I’ve had. For this recipe, I used a mix of lettuce called field greens, which are made up of several different kinds of baby greens. Usually, you can find them in the store, either bagged or boxed. However, if you can’t find it you can always use a mix of romaine, baby spinach, kale, and arugula. The dressing for this salad is a mix of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice. This ...

I am OK with a plain chicken salad using the right dressing, but add a dash of rosemary and you will actually see me get excited to eat this meal on repeat. Plus, it’s so easy to make something as simple as a chicken ...

Caesar Salad Bacon Baskets

Caesar Salad Bacon Baskets

Crisp bacon baskets stuffed with a quick Caesar salad. This fun lunch option is a great way to switch things up. When you fold these to take a bite, you've essentially created Caesar salad tacos - and there's no judgment here on that. These baskets are savory overload. The bacon, Parmesan, and Caesar dressing combine salt and umami. The touch of tomato is not traditional for a Caesar but brings a welcome element of freshness to each bite. I mention this in this again in the steps, but ...

Five Minute Marinated Feta & Sun-dried Tomato Salad

Five Minute Marinated Feta & Sun-dried Tomato Salad

In just five minutes and five steps, you can have a simple keto lunch salad that is bursting with flavor! This salad came together because one of my favorite snacks or small dinners is the marinated feta and olives from the salad bar at my local grocery store. That idea paired with some nutrient-packed spring ...

Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad

Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad

Oh man - if you’ve never had blue cheese and bacon together then you are in for a real treat. It is very delicious, and a combination that makes this salad one of the best I’ve ever had. Now this recipe is very similar to a Cobb salad, but minus a few ingredients. I would recommend adding some hard boiled eggs to this delicious dish if you want. It gives it a bit more variety, however by itself, this salad is still perfect. Yields 6 servings of Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad The ...

Vegetarian Keto Club Salad

Vegetarian Keto Club Salad

Being keto doesn’t have to be hard for all you vegetarians out there! Whether you have been doing keto for a while now, or have just made the switch, it can seem like every recipe you come across is meat heavy and low on the veggies.

My solution? The simple but oh so filling keto club ...
