Chicken salad with curry mayo

Standard

Okay, so this isn’t breaking any records for the most creative or unusual recipe, but it’s an awesome fallback, and wicked delicious. The curry mayo really adds something to this, and sprinkled with a few chopped almonds and some raisins, this is a incredibly tasty and after the mayo is made, easy lunch. I used baby romaine as the eating vessel, and it worked out perfectly!

The mayo really does make this, so I wouldn’t suggest skimping on this step. Browning the spices, and letting the oil steep really does make a huge difference. I used the phenomenal recipe at Nom Nom Paleo, only I used my stand mixer with the whisk attachment.

Salad with pea pesto salad

Standard

Okay, so this looks weird. I’ve made a few tasty things lately, but this might just be the TASTIEST thing I’ve made in quite some time. I can’t believe how delicious this little salad is. (And hey, every game day needs at least a little green.) I had pea pesto for the first time over Christmas, when my cousins Tyla and Tracy showed up with it. I’m usually anti- pea, but there was something about it that tickled my fancy, and I decided I could work with it! The version they brought had cheese in it, and no acid. I figured if I played around with it, I could make it a killer salad dressing.

I should also mention that I LOVE pasta salad. It is something that I miss terribly, but I was determined to come up with a salad that would drive pasta salad right out of my mind. Well shit, job done.

NOW: Peas are in sort of a paleo gray area. Some say yes, some say no. But my rule is that if Mark Sisson says that it is okay, I’m going to go with it being okay. He does say that moderation is key, so don’t go eating this every single day (As tempting as it is).

Curry cauliflower “cous cous” salad with chicken

Standard

ImageBoy, that title doesn’t do this tasty little salad justice. I was craving an easy filling salad, since I’ve been a bit under the weather lately with my chronic BS. I needed something easy, and no fuss to just throw in a bowl and eat, and this was PERFECT. The most pain in the ass part about it was the coconut milk (Which can certainly be swapped with Greek yogurt, if desired.) which I had to drain extensively. Try this! It’s easy, and genuinely really delicious.
