Main Dish Salad #15 - Simple Tuna Salad
Saturday, August 01, 2020      1 comments

That's what Jane Brody calls it in her 1990 cookbook, Jane Brody's Good Food Gourmet. She was big on low-fat, high carb eating, and touts the fact that there's no mayo in this salad. I wasn't at all impressed. I'd rather have mayo in my tu... Read more

Main Dish Salad #14 - BLT Salad
Friday, July 31, 2020      1 comments

Just a very simple BLT salad today. It's exactly what it sounds like - bacon, lettuce, and tomato, with mayo as the dressing. I include the bacon grease.... Read more
Main Dish Salad #13 - Chicken Caesar-Style Veggie Salad
Thursday, July 30, 2020      1 comments

This is the salad I meant to make last night. It's good, easy and very colorful. It would be a good salad to take to a potluck or buffet or something like that because all the veggies are sturdy ones that won't wilt or get yucky. (no lett... Read more
Main Dish Salad #12 - Turkey Ranch Mistake
Wednesday, July 29, 2020      4 comments

This was NOT what I had planned for supper! I was going to have a Chicken Caesar Style Veggie Salad, even had the vegetables all weighed and cut up and everything. But when I got the chicken out of the fridge, I accidentally got some leftover ra... Read more
Main Dish Salad #11 - Sardine and Broccoli Salad
Wednesday, July 29, 2020      1 comments

This is taken almost exactly from Jane Brody's Good Food Book, 1985. I clarified the quantities (the original recipe called for one "bunch" of broccoli and two "cans" of sardines). I also (mostly) cut the recipe in half since it was just for me.... Read more
Edamame (green soy beans)
Tuesday, July 28, 2020      1 comments

Someone (maybe Dana Carpender? or some other big low carb cookbook author) is, or was, really big on black soy beans. They're fermented mature soy beans, and you buy them in a can. They make a pretty substitute for dried beans in things like sou... Read more

Still have lots of zucchini, so oddles of zoodles. I thought about making Zoodle Chow Mein (subbing zoodles for the pasta noodles) but decided to turn it into a salad. Turned out pretty good. ZOODLE CHOW MEIN SALAD 200 gr zuuchin... Read more
Main Dish Salad #9 - Sumptuous Pork Salad
Tuesday, July 28, 2020      0 comments

This one is straight from The Carbohydrate Addict's Cookbook. I actually followed the recipe, which is unusual for me. Well, close, anyway. The original recipe measures the pork and veggies in cups and I weigh things, instead. And I used the las... Read more
Oops! No salad
Tuesday, July 28, 2020      1 comments

No main dish salad yesterday. I'll have two salads some day this month to make up for it. Maybe today.... Read more

Sunday, July 26, 2020      4 comments

Just your basic salad of chicken and/or turkey, with cheese, over veggies. In this case, lettuce, cucumber, carrot, and tomato.... Read more
Main Dish Salad #7 - Cobbish Salad
Saturday, July 25, 2020      6 comments

DB came down and visited yesterday, and I took a slow-cooker turkey breast over to Mom's house for supper. I made some ranch dressing mix, without the buttermilk powder, and used that and some bacon to season the turkey. Turned out pretty good. ... Read more
Main Dish Salad #6 - Taco-ish Salad
Friday, July 24, 2020      4 comments

Sort of taco-ish, anyway. I had an avocado that really needed to be used (I used it just in time - would be bad by tomorrow), so I mashed it up with some taco seasoning, half a tomato, lime juice, and some sour cream. Added lettuce, chicke... Read more
Main Dish Salad #5 - Egg Salad
Thursday, July 23, 2020      3 comments

Got back from Mom's house a bit late this morning (early afternoon, actually) so just grabbed a really quick salad. Iceberg lettuce. A Roma tomato. Four eggs. Some ranch dressing. And some sunflower seeds. Really quick and easy, and good, too. A... Read more
Main Dish Salad #4 - Mediterranean Pasta (Zoodle) Salad
Wednesday, July 22, 2020      5 comments

Not a keeper. Not even worth trying to think how to fix. But here it is anyway. The recipe is from "Mueller Spiralizer Cookbook," by J. S. Amie, 2015. It's a Kindle cookbook I got for free from Amazon. Do you check out the free Kindle books ther... Read more
