Curried Carrot Salad

Carrots are full of vitamin A and they are a great basis for a salad. This salad would definitely be bugs bunny approved! I tossed grated carrots into a lovely curry-sour cream dressing and it made a super yummy side dish. Dressing ingredients: sour cream, touch of mayo, curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper….

Potato Corn Pancakes

We had a bbq yesterday and there were lots of leftovers – mostly baked potatoes and corn. Instead of just eating them the same way, I decided to turn those things into pancakes/patties.  So I mashed the potato roughly and took the corn off the cob, and mixed them with an egg, some panko, paprika,…

Tomato and Chickpea Salad

I have a lot of chickpea recipes (mostly sslads) on my blog – if you go to the bottom of my site and type chickpea in the search box, you will see the whole collection.  So this salad had chickpeas, tomato, green onion and a simple olive oil and lemon based dressing. I mixed the…

Potato Knishes

I’ve made these once in my life (around 10 years ago). My grandma taught me how to make them and for some reason, I haven’t made them since. But I finally made them on the weekend and I’m sure she would be proud of me – she passed away a couple years ago. If you…

Curried Carrot and Chickpea Salad

I love salads. I’m sure I’ve said that before, but this salad was better than I thought it would be. My dilemma is usually trying to figure out what kind of dressing to put on my ingredients – what actually goes in the salad is easy for me. This time, I had some shredded carrot…

Coleslaw with Avocado Dressing

I saw on TV someone making an avocado crema and I thought that would be a good basis for a coleslaw dressing – and I was right! All it had in it was avocado, a bit of sour cream, lemon juice, pinch of sugar, salt and pepper. It was a little thick, so I should’ve…

Roasted Vegetable Couscous Salad

Got home after work and I really just wanted to eat something healthy, delicious, and most importantly fast. I chopped some zucchini and bell pepper, tossed them with oil, salt, pepper and oregano and roasted them for about 15 minutes. While that was going, I chopped some olives and tomatoes, then made 1/2 cup (raw)…

Greek Watermelon and Chickpea Salad

I know my previous post is a Greek salad, but this one has a twist. Instead of this one being lettuce based, I used watermelon and chickpeas. Then I added feta cheese, kalamata olives, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, chili flakes and oregano (same dressing as last time).  This was a really nice…

Easy Peasy Greek Salad

August was a busy month for me – travelling and working – so I really haven’t been cooking too much 😦 I’ve been having quite simple meals (like this one). This salad was super simple and entirely from scratch. The salad ingredients are iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomato, kalamata olives, avocado and feta cheese. The dressing…

Zucchini and Tomato Tian

I’ve seen so many people make these before and I really wanted to make one for myself. They look so pretty and it’s not that hard to make the design – it honestly took less than 10 minutes to put together. So I have alternating slices of zucchini and tomato, then I drizzled a bit…

Vibrant Pasta Salad

I know I’ve made pasta salad posts before – they’re just so easy and yummy and versatile. This one had corn, red bell pepper, green beans (that I cooked with the pasta when it was almost done), and kalamata olives. The dressing was olive oil, red wine vinegar, spicy mustard, salt, pepper and a bit…

Spiralized Zucchini Salad

I almost forgot that I had a spiralizer cause I haven’t used it in so long. I made a really nice thai dressing to put on my zucchini noodles. It had peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground ginger powder, lime juice and sriracha. I added some carrot slices for extra crunch, but also some…
