Sweet Crisp Celery Salad

by Jane Wangersky March 26th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Though I wrote last time about using celery in fruit salad, I’d never actually done this with it myself. And to be precise, that’s not what I did this time either; this isn’t a fruit salad so much as a salad with fruit. Here’s how it came about.

Bacon and Egg Salad Sandwich

by Jane Wangersky September 4th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
September is time to think about school lunches and their classic main dish, the sandwich. (At least, it is if your kids' school is opening up on schedule, not staying closed because of a strike -- but in that case, your kids can always try selling sandwiches to the

Green Bean Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

by Jane Wangersky July 31st, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
We get vegetables delivered every week, and unless I remember to check the order online and tweak it, what we get is the company’s selection of what’s in season. It usually works out pretty well even if I don’t remember to make any changes, because the produce is fresh

Lemon Pepper Potato Salad

by Jane Wangersky July 24th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s too hot to turn on the oven and make my lemon pepper oven fries, which is a shame because they’d go so well with the burgers we’re going to be grilling in the backyard . . . but that doesn’t mean we can’t have potatoes flavored with lemon

What makes this very simple salad special is the fresh homemade dressing -- and that's simple, too. Leaves of fresh sweet basil, with their unique taste, are puréed with olive oil and white wine vinegar, which will take you just seconds with an immersion blender (a food processor will

Asian Asparagus Salad — With A Touch of Sushi

by Jane Wangersky June 26th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
It's asparagus season -- it must be, the stuff was half price the last time I went grocery shopping. Though asparagus certainly isn't the first vegetable I think of when I've got a salad to make, it's what we had this week, so it's what I went with. All

Roasted Pepper and Olive Salad

by BnB Finder June 24th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Here's a quick but complex-tasting and spicy salad -- quick, that is, if you have roasted peppers around. If you don't, they take some time but they're really easy to cook. Just heat up the broiler, cut some fresh peppers in half, flatten them out as much as you

Ham and Cheese Salad

by Jane Wangersky June 19th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
With a salad to invent and a lot of ham and cheese in my fridge, I began wondering why we’ve come up with ham and cheese, ham salad, but not ham and cheese salad. Well, as it turns out, many people have had that same thought, judging by the

Salad Part II: Beyond Greens

by Jane Wangersky June 13th, 2014| Cooking Basics
We’ve covered lettuce (and other salad greens) at great length -- and when I was growing up, that was nearly all you needed to think about when making salad. All that was left to do was cut up a tomato or two and set out a bottle

Beets Stuffed with Cucumber Salad

by Jane Wangersky June 12th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Beets, like revenge, are best served cold, which means, like revenge, they take some planning. This beet dish is no exception, but once you’ve got your cold, cooked beet(s) at hand, it really doesn’t take much time or work. Yet it still looks pretty enough to be special. It

Caprese Salad

by BnB Finder June 10th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Simple but special and complex-tasting, this recipe delivers a mouthful of pizza-like flavor in a salad. For a change of pace, there are no greens required for this salad, except some fresh basil leaves. (Running them through your salad spinner -- it's not just for lettuce! -- will ensure

Salad Part I: Greens

by Jane Wangersky June 6th, 2014| Cooking Basics
We got a quick preview of summer this year, before it turned back into plain old spring. During those two hot days, we dug out a couple of things we hadn’t used since last summer: the barbecue (even though we had no burgers, only sausage patties, and I was
