This summer salad has everything one would need for a perfect summer salad. Plump red strawberries and BBQ'd chicken combined on the same plate. It's low carb, gluten-free, and packed with protein but its a perfect combination of sweet and savory. I used shredded cheddar but feel free to use [...]

Simple Arugula Lunch Salad

Salads don't always have to be complicated and when you are at a bit of a loss for something different to have for lunch raid your crisper and throw something together. You might find you love the new flavour combination. For this salad I did just that. A little this [...]

Mango Chicken Salad

Mango, chicken and curry seem to be the ultimate pairing. I used the Alphonso Mango which is a seasonal fruit considered to be among the most superior varieties of the fruit in terms of sweetness, richness and flavour. Alphonso's voluptuous shape and sunshine-yellow skin reveals succulent saffron-coloured flesh that's smooth [...]

Low Carb Taco Salad

Low carb taco Tuesday. How you ask? Omit the taco shells place the middles in a bowl and you have a fantastic taco salad without all the carbs. I love chili seasoning and chili powder is actually a fairly healthy seasoning, with significant amounts of several beneficial nutrients such as [...]

Ham and Egg Spinach Salad

After work today I spent and hour and a half mowing our new sod for the first time. It was looking like a little bit of a jungle. Birds were getting lost in the luscious vegetation and our poor Boston Terrior Nico has to bound like Bambi to get from [...]

Pad Thai Salad

This spectacular summer salad is very high in protein and adds beautiful colour to your summer table. To julienne veggies I would suggest purchasing a julienne peeler. They usually come with 3 different blades and are a handy little gadget to have around the kitchen.
