Recipe- Melon Salad with a Bite

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 14th, 2015| Recipes, Salads
I love salads. Give me a fruit or vegetable based salad, and I am happy. In fact, I have determined that when my husband travels and my daughter is busy with school and sports, I could make a week of dinners out of lettuce, chicken, and parmesan. Yep, I

Recipe- Local Corn Salsa

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 7th, 2015| Recipes, Salads, Spreads & Sauces
We are a little bit more than midway through corn season, so it is time to cook with it. All too soon we'll have to switch to the bags of local corn we've frozen over the summer or, worse, turn to store-bought bags of frozen corn. However, we're still

Recipe- Fresh Peach & Tomato Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 31st, 2015| Recipes, Salads
This week's featured ingredient is the tomato. My favorite roadside stand seems to be overflowing with these beautiful gems. As such summer is my favorite time to work with fresh tomatoes. Once they aren't local, they lose all of their best attributes: color, smell, taste. So, as I bow

Sweet Corn & Tomato Salad

Through the first half of this summer, I've been to a number of cookouts. The one thing they all have in common is the preponderance of salads. However, most of the salads I've seen are the mayonnaise-coated persuasion- pasta, potato, cole slaw. I understand that these are traditional summer

Warm Carrot & Quinoa Salad

It's the beginning of June, which means technically it's still spring but mentally we all view it as summer. If you live in New Hampshire, as I do, Mother Nature likes to provide reminders as to what season it truly is. Last week I had an evening alone and

Chicken & Strawberry Salad Sandwich

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 18th, 2015| Recipes, Salads, Sandwiches
At our house we are huge fans of chicken salad sandwiches. In fact, they make a regular appearance in our summer menu. For us, chicken salad is an individual item. So, on chicken salad nights, there are chicken breasts, binding ingredient (mayo, yogurt, etc.), and an assortment of add-ins

Warm Asparagus Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 11th, 2015| Recipes, Salads
I have used asparagus as the topping of many a green salad. Steamed and cut into bite-sized pieces, it is a nice change of pace from pepper strips and cherry tomatoes. What I hadn't done was used the asparagus as the star of the salad. As they say, there's
Raw Kale Salad

Raw Kale Salad from Rabbit Hill Inn

by BnB Finder August 12th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes, Salads
Kale has been a fad ingredient for the past couple years.  Although it is on many restaurant menus, there's a decent chance that it isn't making many home dinner menus successfully.  Kale can be a tricky ingredient to incorporate.  Cooked or prepared incorrectly, and you will turn your family

Shrimp & Avocado Cocktail- An Indulgent Start to Dinner

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 28th, 2014| Appetizers, Recipes, Salads
July has been the month of cold dishes.  Icy cold from the refrigerator, refreshing on the palate sort of dishes. I will end this month with another delightfully cooling dish, but this one is special.  It isn't an any night of the week dish (at least in my opinion.)  Rather

Taco Salad

This salad is a long-time family favorite, as in it is a recipe that I enjoyed when I was a child.  If I remember correctly, my aunt gave it to my mom, and it became a salad that was made on a semi-regular basis by my mom.  When I

Chicken Broccoli Couscous Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 2nd, 2014| Recipes, Salads
My cooking is seasonal.  I don't mean that I only cook items that can be locally sourced at that time of year but rather that I cook based on the weather. For example, winter is the time for stews, soups, and crockpot dinners.  My mom finds this style of

Carrot & Dried Cranberry Salad

Last Sunday, the favorite NFL teams in our household were both playing at 1:00 pm.  The Patriots game would be watched on tv, and the Ravens game would be followed online.  So, with this simultaneous double header and everyone home, a round of snacks were in order.  On the
