Summer Salad Series: Chipotle Steak Salad

2

29.8.12

Today I will be featuring the last salad in my Summer Salad Series.  I looked through all of my cookbooks and favorite online cooking sites for the perfect recipe to try.  There were a lot of steak salads out there but I decided that this chipotle steak salad from the Pioneer Woman would be the best one to try.  Her homemade chipotle dressing sounded perfect!  She makes a much bigger portion that we would need in our little two person household so I cut the recipe in half (except the marinade).  I hope you give it a try!

Summer Salad Series: Vegetarian Chopped Salad

22.8.12

It’s Wednesday but it feels like it should be Friday!  Today I am sharing a vegetarian chopped salad for my summer salad series.  I found this recipe over on the Aida Mollencamp site.  If you’ve never been there you should hop over and check it out, lots of great recipes and photography.

I was looking for a fresh and easy salad, preferably vegetarian and this one looked like the perfect fit.  Plus I thought it would be fun to photograph all of the pretty colors.  The directions look lengthy but it is really just a lot of chopping which can be relaxing.

Summer Salad Series: Orzo Salad

2

15.8.12

Today’s summer salad reminds me a little bit of the chickpea salad that I made a few weeks ago. This salad uses orzo, a pasta that I have not cooked with before.  It is similar looks similar to rice but has the texture of pasta.  The original recipe from My Recipes called for feta cheese but I decided to use Parmesan instead.  This would be an easy salad to pack for lunch and I think kids would like it too.

If you are new to Kuzak’s Closet I am sharing a new salad recipe every Wednesday and I am calling it my Summer Salad Series.  Today I am sharing an arugula salmon salad.
I found this recipe on Gina’s Skinny Recipe Blog called Skinny Taste.  She used leftover salmon and shredded it on top of her salad but I thought it would taste better if used a small fillets of grilled salmon.

Summer Salad Series: Vegetarian Fiesta Salad

27.6.12

My husband Chris challenged me to post a new salad recipe on the blog each week to help motivate me to try new things and eat a little healthier this summer.  I’m calling it my Summer Salad Series.  I am surprised how quickly this challenge changed our dinner routine, we now have salads for dinner 4-5 times a week now.

It has been my goal to find tasty main course salads that are healthy, easy to assemble, and affordable so I have been searching the world wide web for inspiration.  I found this salad recipe on the Martha Stewart and it instantly sounded appealing because it is vegetarian, easy to make, and affordable.
