Salads

Avocado Salad with Carrot-Ginger Dressing

The carrot ginger-dressing is a snap to make and is the perfect complement to the salad's creamy avocado and soft Bibb lettuce. You'll have extra dressing which works out well because you'll want to pour it on everything!

Winter Citrus Salad with Honey Dressing

Citrus is at its peak in the middle of winter, and that's just when you need a bright sunny dish like this salad. Use any combination of citrus you like - just be sure to use sweet citrus fruit rather than sour. You may also want to try adding a pinch of black pepper or cayenne.

Grapefruit Chicken Salad

A tart and sweet twist on traditional chicken salad, and a great way to use leftover chicken.

Cider Vinaigrette

The accompaniment to the Willy Street Co-op's Cranberry Pecan Wild Rice Salad.

Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

The sweet potato has never tasted so good! One of your favorite dishes re-imagined with more color and flavor than ever before.

Kale and Honeydew Summer Salad

The hearty flavor of the kale (I recommend lacinato) combines with the sweetness of melon and the richness of the cheese to make a knock-out salad!

Panzanella Salad with Beans

"It's filling, versatile, and beautiful on a plate. This traditional Italian salad is meant for summer when tomatoes are at their peak, so don't even try to attempt this with less-than-stellar tomatoes or you'll be disappointed with the results." - Jeannette Ordas

Salad Of Sorrel, Endive And Mushrooms With Walnut Dressing

“This earthy salad recipe is adapted from Elizabeth Schneider's Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables (Perennial Library 1986). The sourness of the sorrel and bitterness of the endive are countered by the sweetness of balsamic vinegar and walnuts.” – NPR.com

Kumquat Salsa

Charming kumquats make for excellent salsa! Spoon over the usual quesadilla, munch with chips, or serve over a protein of your choice. Play with the ingredients- add whatever attracts your notice!

Kumquat and Red Cabbage Slaw

Did you know kumquats are one of the only citrus fruits you can eat whole? Experiment with the dressing in this tasty and simple slaw until it suits your fancy. The sweet/tart combination of the kumquat fruit and rind contrast beautifully with the crunch of the red cabbage!

Rainbow Beets with Orange Vinaigrette

We are lucky here in Wisconsin to have 4 distinct seasons. Unfortunately, by this time of year there aren’t a lot of local produce choices available to us. Thank goodness for our root vegetables, which stay with us to the welcome arrival of spring. Combine local rainbow beets with very in season (if only in FL and CA) citrus for a fresh winter dish that is sure to please!

Citrus Dressing

Tis the season for citrus! Try this knockout dressing on salads, or as a marinade for tofu or chicken.

Warm Winter Vegetable Salad

This healthy and flavorful salad is just the lunch or dinnertime trick. Make extra large portions and serve as a platter salad with a side of sliced baguettes and hummus.

Another great thing about this recipe is that you can really use any combo of winter veggies you’d like. Not a fan of beets? Why not throw in a turnip? Can’t stand carrots? Throw in some red potatoes. It’s really up to you.

Fantastic Tangy and Sweet Green Dressing

Another FANTASTIC and easy to make recipe from the ladies who brought us the Garden of Vegan cookbook. Top your dragon bowl, a salad, or anything, really, with this knock out dressing!

Cajun Kale Salad

Give your dark leafy greens a kick with this recipe! Try the cajun spice seasoning on other leafy greens, or on some popcorn.

Salad of Jicama and Papaya

This salad is summer food at its finest. Crisp, juicy, refreshing and textured, jicama and papaya make an unlikely yet delightful duo, especially when paired with this light orange juice dressing atop a bed of crunchy Bibb lettuce.

Mango Papaya Salad

Part fruit salad and part green salad, this refreshing hybrid is the best of both worlds! Crisp romaine topped with a summery trio of tropical fruits (mango, papaya and avocado) that will satisfy and delight the whole family. Top with this easy and delicious balsamic and blended fruit dressing, which adds freshness and flavor though very little fat or calories. Candied almonds add crunch. An unusual treat that may become a summer staple after spending long days in the sun.

Arugula Pesto

Arugula pesto is a fun and slightly spicy alternative to basil pesto. Another great way to enjoy this delightful green.

Make-Ahead Artichoke Salad

This delicious side dish is perfect for a buffet, potluck or anytime. Be sure to allow enough time for the salad to marinate.

Avocado Mint Salad

This distinctive salad is just the thing to get you out of a dinner rut. Tender bibb lettuce, torn and topped with avocado, ribbons of mint, and a fresh grapefruit juice dressing pleasantly startle and awaken taste buds. Especially delightful in the months of November through February, when Texas Rio Star grapefruit are in season.

Brussels Sprouts Potato Salad

This hearty side is a great dish for potlucks and entertaining. The addition of Brussels sprouts transforms potato salad, a summer favorite, into something definitively autumnal.

Coleslaw

A traditional favorite for casual meals.
