Macaroni Salad

Use other vegetables as desired in this salad. Small broccoli florets are a nice addition. Nasoya makes a fat free mayonnaise that may also be used in this recipe. It can be found in most natural food stores.

Grilled Balsamic Vegetables

These roasted vegetables are one of my favorite side dishes, but I love it so much, I could eat it as a main dish several times a week! I usually serve this warm from the oven, but it may also be chilled and eaten as a salad.

Italian Style Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is incredibly nutritious and delicious. It is the quickest cooking whole grain, as it takes less than 20 minutes. Cook a big batch and then use 2 cups to make this great looking and tasting salad or just follow the recipe. Once you taste it, you’ll want to make it often. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy taste. As always, use the best fresh ingredients you can get. This salad sings, “It’s Summer”.

Garden Bean Salad

Very quick meal. You can make this lower in salt by using home-cooked dry beans and defrosted frozen green beans instead of canned. I always keep cooked dried beans in zip lock bags in the freezer – they thaw under running water in about the same time it takes to open a can.

Jim is an intelligent and conscientious craftsman and at the time he was very invested in getting things right. And, “rightly,” […]
