Springtime Salad from “In the Oven”

This recipe is a result of growing up with an abundance of fresh vegetables courtesy of my granddad. Watercress, asparagus and jersey royal new potatoes are all in season right now and I’m missing out. Tempting as it is to take a trip back to the UK to get my hands on some homegrown goodness Continue Reading …

Lentil Salad with Sun Dried Tomato-Tahini Dressing

I made this quick lentil salad to accompany my bowl of Smokey Potato Soup with Roasted Garlic (which I will post later this week!).  It was the perfect, protein-packed side, full of crunchy veggies (use what you have in your crisper) and tossed in a creamy, sun dried tomato dressing.  If you’re cooking the lentils Continue Reading …

Cauliflower Inspired Raw Tabouleh

If you’re looking for yummy low glycemic, low carb options, then you’ll need to consider substituting your grains for more nutrient dense, vitamin rich veggies.

Roasted Beet and Watercress Salad

I was inspired by Jen’s Salad Tips last week and decided I too wanted to make a rockin’ salad.  It’s a pretty simple combination of nutrient-rich veggies, but packs quite a punch in terms of flavour, texture and vitamins.  I love combining roasted vegetables with fresh greens – it’s a salad party in your mouth!  The watercress brings Continue Reading …

Spinach-Pomegranate Salad with Poppyseed Dressing and Gardein Crispy Tenders|Sponsored Post

This salad is delightful!  I just made this up today and I am really proud of this creation.  It has a few components but is fairly easy to assemble once everything is prepared.  It is packed full of iron from the spinach with loads of vitamin C from the Pomegranate seeds to aid in absorption. Continue Reading …
