Greek Salad

by angelika on September 20, 2012

This salad is my end of summer staple. I still have cucumbers and tomatoes in abundance, and back to school has left some of our weeknights pretty hectic. I love that this comes together in no time flat. I roast the red onions ahead of time and keep them in my fridge- mainly because I am not a […]


Charred Corn and Kale Salad

by angelika on September 1, 2012

I love kale salad. Almost as much as my beloved arugula. Frankly, it is a relief. I have been trying to get more dark leafy greens into my diet, and I am not super in love with a lot of cooked greens. The texture throws me. Unless, of course, you cook the heck out of them […]

Rainbow Potato Salad

by angelika on July 21, 2012

This rainbow potato salad was a dish at our extravaganza. I found these bagged potatoes at Whole Foods that were filled with pearl sized potatoes in purple, red and yellow. Each potato a single bite, ridiculously adorable. The combination of arugula and kalamatta olives is one of my favorites. Spicy and fresh with salty and rich. Amazing texture. […]

If you took one look at the title of this recipe and thought, yes please!, then we must be related. When I made this salad, I felt as if I had died and gone to salad heaven. The funny thing is, this salad was born from frustration. Mr. Fabulous brought home the groceries from his […]


Pecan Encrusted Goat Cheese and Fig Salad

by angelika on September 16, 2011

When I was first thinking of writing a blog, one of the names I pondered was “for the love of figs”. I did not go with that name, obviously, but it really speaks to my love, almost devotion to the fig. This is my favorite fruit. Absolutely. I love how well it pairs with honey and […]

Vegan Waldorf Salad

by angelika on July 29, 2011

My husband works late a night or two a week, and while I miss him and our family dinners, it is also really nice to have an evening to myself. With no Daddy home kids and I eat early and then bath and bed by 7. This leaves me a few solid glorious hours to […]

Chickpea Mozzarella Salad

by angelika on July 22, 2011

Sometimes leftovers make the most deliciously surprising meal. That’s how it went here tonight. We had several containers of fresh mozzarella left over from our last party, and lots of cherry tomatoes too. What I did not have was basil- which is my usual go to with mozzarella and tomato. I did, however, have cilantro […]


Arugula Watermelon Salad

by angelika on July 5, 2011

This years 4th of July salad was such a huge hit I had to turn right around and share it with you. It is absolutely my new favorite salad. Now, you know I love arugula. I eat it at least 4 times a week, and I usually pair it with savory items like nuts and blue cheese. Then I […]

Lentil Salad with Shallot Vinaigrette

by angelika on June 16, 2011

Fast and easy is the name of the game with this salad, but it definitely tasted like you slaved away. I prefer this salad cold, but it would be great as a warm dish too. I am a huge fan of lentils in general, but when they are cooked al dente and made into a salad, it […]

Greek Panzanella

by angelika on June 2, 2011

Panzanella salad is one of my favorite weeknight meals. It is so nourishing and filling, and you can add almost anything to it. Tonight we had a Greek inspired salad, which to me just means I added copious amount of feta and kalamata olives. Ina Garten introduced me to the panzanella, an Italian bread salad. One of […]


Quinoa Tabouli

by angelika on March 30, 2011

I love rethinking a favorite item, like this twist on a traditional tabouli. I spent some time in the middle east when I was in college, and I fell head over heals in love with the food. Hummus is so different in Jordan, lemony fresh and bright, creamy and light. The hummus I was used […]


Endive and Avocado Salad

by angelika on March 13, 2011

I have a new favorite salad. It is so incredibly delicious and so easy! In the winder endive abounds; it is a lovely and delicious bitter green. Today I paired it with creamy avocado, radish and crumbled gorgonzola cheese. It is truly heaven! This salad serves two.  Endive and Avocado Salad 2 endive heads, cut […]

Cabbage Crunch

by angelika on January 4, 2011

There is this salad I love on the Whole Foods salad bar called Cabbage Crunch. It is so light, a little bit tangy, and super crunchy. It is one of my favorite lunch items. Today I decided to recreate it at home, and I think my version turned out great! We loved this light and […]

Chickpea Salad

by angelika on December 20, 2010

This Chickpea Salad is so incredibly easy to put together, and delicious beyond belief. We served this on a buffet at our holiday party and it was a huge hit. It also kept very well, and we stuffed pita with it the next day to make a delicious lunch. It has a light lemony dressing but what really […]


Panzanella Salad

by angelika on November 23, 2010

Last weekend Little Man had his birthday party. It was a swashbuckling Pirate Party. The gods, however, conspired against us. Amidst a month full of unseasonably warm days, we had one day, just one day…his day, with torrential thunderstorms and hail. We had invited more people than our house could comfortably hold, so I was in panic mode all week. […]
