Waldorf Inspired Quinoa Salad

This salad isn’t a Waldorf salad in the traditional sense, but it takes a lot of the same great flavours of a Waldorf salad, and combines it with the power-house seed, quinoa. I made this Waldorf Inspired Quinoa Salad for supper one day while we were having BBQ beef ring and potato salad, it was […]

Greek Quinoa Salad

Yum! If I had the ingredients on hand, I’d make this Greek Quinoa Salad again. But, I don’t have any feta cheese. Or quinoa right now either. Shoot, guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait a little longer.  We (read “the adults”) really loved this salad. I can’t wait until the summer, when […]

Fabulous Fruit Dip

The other day I was looking for a fruit dip. While we were at the grocery store, my boy asked if we could buy a pineapple. Both he and my daughter pick pineapple off of their pizza, so I thought…sure! Then you can eat pineapple, and see that it really is good. Mind you, the […]

The flavours are really great, and the sour cream layer  doesn’t make it sour, but rather, makes it very creamy. Delicious!

Catalina Salad Dressing

We use quite a bit of Catalina salad dressing at our house. Mostly when we have taco salad. When I had that on the menu for the evening, and realized that I didn’t have any dressing at home, I looked into my cookbooks. I found this recipe in one of those wonderful Church compilation cookbooks. […]

Broccoli Apple Salad

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the broccoli & cauliflower salad that sometimes has bacon or raisins in it. This recipe for Broccoli Apple Salad is similar to those recipes, but I think it is bumped up a notch. The dressing is cooked, but don’t let that stop you from making it. It is a […]
