Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing

Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing

And Feta, Raisins, and Cranberries

Posted on April 18, 2017
I’ll be honest, this recipe happened for two reasons. One, I happened to immolate the roasted beet and asparagus side dish that I was going to serve with my Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib. Two, I went WAYYYYY overboard when making some carrot cake for dessert. Luckily that meant that I had loads of perfectly shredded carrots for a Carrot Salad With Creamy Dressing, Feta, Raisins, and Cranberries, which turned out to be a delicious side dish.

Horseradish Potato Salad

Horseradish Potato Salad

Perfect potato salad with a kick

Posted on May 10, 2016
Horseradish Potato Salad is the perfect creamy potato salad with one heck of a kick. Craving potato salad one evening, I found that I didn't have all of the proper ingredients for traditional potato salad. I substituted cabbage for celery, but was running out of mayonnaise. Since I had some horseradish mayonnaise kicking about, I thought “why not?”. Turns out that it was the right decision indeed. You have to be careful when adding horseradish to things. It will clear your sinuses. If you love hot stuff, kick things up a notch with extra horseradish. Pair this side dish with sweet and sticky ribs or wings, and you will have the quintessential barbecue meal. Perfect for #BarbecueMonth.

Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad

with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Posted on April 14, 2016
My fantastic grandmother served this salad one evening with dinner. Cucumber Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette is supremely light, and packs a flavor punch that you are not expecting. Adding the onion and carrots elevates this side from possibly pickles to positively divine. It is unexpected and fresh. It would make a great topping for a turkey or veggie burger, or perfect for pretty much any meal where you need a quick and light side.
