Great Green Goddess Salad

The classic Green Goddess dressing has a hint of anchovy for umami, but if you want to leave it out, you can. Top with cooked chicken or ham for a main course salad, or serve alongside grilled shrimp. Double the amounts in the dressing ingredients to make extra for salads throughout the week!


Muhammara is a Middle Eastern dip that originates from Aleppo, Syria. It is traditionally made with breadcrumbs, but can easily be made without.

A quick and easy chicken salad which is great on it's own or topped on a bed of greens. 

Mango Jicama Guacamole

This is a fantastic dish to serve at a party; just double (or triple) the recipe and use a wider bowl or small casserole dish. The crunchy jicama, sweet mango and creamy avocado are a delicious topping for tostadas and quesadillas, too.

Smoked Salmon and Arugula Salad

This simple salad is a great lunch, and the soft, salty salmon pairs perfectly with crisp greens and creamy dressing. You can use fat-free yogurt and low-fat mayo if you want to keep the fat content low, or full-fat, for a richer dressing. If you want to snip some fresh dill over the salmon, that would be lovely, too.

This salad is a great make-ahead option, since, unlike many tossed salads, it keeps for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

Substitute navel oranges for the blood oranges if you prefer; just be sure to use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice with the sweeter navel orange juice in the dressing.
