If you spend enough time on Instagram, you know that summer is "tomato season." But when you have access to pretty much every vegetable 365 days a year, what does tomato season even mean? I use tomatoes almost every day when I make my favorite chopped salad. But moving into summer means moving tomatoes from a supporting one to a lead one and that's where this salad comes in. 

Tomatoes are the star here. We've got two varieties...

Few things truly leave me speechless but fried goat cheese may be one of them, so, on that note, I'll keep this short.

Yes, this is a salad and yes, there are fruits in it. Clearly I'm not afraid of fruits in my salad and I really think you shouldn't be either. But if you are, I think grilled peaches may be the gateway drug. Like fine, I get it if you don't appreciate raw green apple mixing and mingling with your walnuts and yo...

I love a Nicoise Salad and will almost always order it when on the menu. But with so many variations it can be hard to find the *perfect* salad. For me, it's no anchovies (too salty,) not too many potatoes (otherwise why eat a salad,) the right dressing, runny eggs and either tuna in the can or raw seared tuna. If you're thinking to yourself, "She is so high maintenance" then good news - you're right! If I weren't picky with m...

There are few things that excite me more than getting to the supermarket and seeing that the new Spring vegetables have arrived. Asparagus, ramps, fiddlehead ferns; you name it, I'm buying it. One of my favorite things about eating seasonally is that I get a chance to miss certain vegetables, and when I am finally "reintroduced" to these vegetables, I have a fresh take on them and that's when some of the best ideas are born. I...

I pretty much always have some version of this salad in my fridge. I never thought much of it, it was just a basic chopped salad in my eyes, but I recently served it over a family vacation and I was met with a lot of questions. How did I cook the chickpeas? What's in the dressing? What kind of cheese did I use? I realized I may have been underestimating this salad all along. 

When I can, I love to make a really large...

In general I like to eat with the seasons. When the clock strikes Thanksgiving I'm inhaling squash at an alarming rate, and when the clock strikes July 4th I all but turn into a Watermelon. But the sweet spot really exists now, in February. Why, you might ask? Can you say CITRUS. And can you say RADISH. And can you say a match made in heaven?!?!?!?!? If you're of the mindset that summer bodies are made in the winter then I urg...

Want to know how to get your husband/boyfriend/father/brother to eat healthily? Two words: Steak salad. Steak gets a bad rep in the diet world, but if you use lean steaks and plate it over a big bowl of greens, it's rather healthy and a much tastier alternative to your average chicken/salmon/tuna routine. I particularly love steak salads for weeknights because steaks are actually one of the quickest proteins to cook: in under...

Salad is no ones favorite food, so when I put a salad out and it actually goes, I know I'm onto something. This one not only went, my husband asked I make it for dinner that same night.

I call this one the New Year's salad for two reasons; first, the jewel tones and textures recall a sort of New Year's aesthetic. Second, it's the perfect way to stick with your "I'm going to lose weight" resolutions without being utterly bo...

So long as you can find a great fish market, you can have raw fish at home. I'm not talking about the kind you buy frozen from Trader Joe's or the counter at Whole Foods. After being completely, for lack of a better term, grossed out by these options, my husband and I discovered an amazing fish market in our area. The vendors are knowledgeable and super helpful for all our needs. I encourage all of you to find an amazing fish...

I hate to be the one to break it to you but summer is almost over. The upside? Time to start working on that winter body. (Kidding!!)

Panzanella salads are the answer when you've binged just a bit too much over the weekend, but you're not totally ready to throw out that leftover challah. This version, which uses leftover challah for the breadcrumbs and sweet summer peaches and tomatoes, is both sweet and savory, soft and crunch...
