Strawberry Chopped Salad

I have made more than my share of dessert recipes using strawberries, but I also like including them in salads where they can provide a fresh contrast to other ingredients. This dish is one I made recently when I happened upon a really good pint of berries in the store.

Mango Ceviche With Kale

Ceviche is a raw fish dish traditionally prepared in countries like Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, and Chile. This plant-based ceviche is an easy and refreshing recipe that is great during warmer months. Even with very few ingredients, its flavor is exquisite!

Greek Salad with Tofu “Feta”

This Greek salad is great as a side with pizza or pasta. It can also be served on its own with whole grain bread. For the salad greens, I prefer a balanced mixture of arugula, spinach, and romaine lettuce. The peppery flavor of the arugula goes really well with the Kalamata olives and marinated tofu!

Sweet Potato Tofu Buddha Bowl

This crowd-pleasing salad buddha bowl strikes a great balance between a wide variety of vibrant flavors. The peppery freshness of the arugula pairs wonderfully with the smoothness of the avocado. Add to that the heartiness of the sweet potato and a healthy scoop of quinoa, and it’s quite filling too!

Apple Fig Arugula Salad

The peppery arugula, toasted pecans, and mix of tart and sweet fruits in this salad make it a perfect accompaniment for any dish. Or, it can be a quick, easy meal on its own when cooking seems like too much work.

Late Summer Potato Green Bean Salad

With its delicious vinaigrette base, you won’t miss the mayo in this potato salad. This salad is nice and light compared to most potato salads, and it makes great use of veggies that are in season in the late summer.

Bright Beet Salad

While we prefer watercress, this tasty slow-and-low-cooked dish can be combined with any type of raw, leafy greens. It’s not only a versatile salad; it’s also stunningly beautiful.

Potato Meets Egg Salad

One day I had the idea to substitute cooked potato for the tofu in my original egg salad recipe. I loved the result! You can still use tofu if you prefer, or half of both (see tips).
