Vegan brussle sprout salad in a bowl

Vegan Brussels Sprouts Salad

Move over mixed greens and kale, there’s a new salad green in town, Brussels sprouts. Ok, I know some of you may be shaking your heads at the thought of Brussels sprouts in general, never mind raw Brussels, but I would encourage you to give this salad a try, because when Brussels sprouts are raw and thinly sliced they resemble a crunchy cabbage salad.

The best lemon vinaigrette

If you were to ask me what recipe I make the most often, it would be this lemon vinaigrette. This vinaigrette is a staple in my house and if I could bottle it and sell it, I would! This is the honestly the BEST AND SIMPLEST VINAIGRETTE and is my GO-TO for EVERYTHING! This lemon vinaigrette literally takes 5 minutes to make, and has no added sugar or other random ingredients that you can’t pronounce.

Easy Farro Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion and Basil

I just had to post this farro salad because I’m literally making it ALL the time, (obsessed) and the kids and I are devouring it. It’s SO simple to make and pairs with just about anything, chicken, steak, fish, you name it. It’s even awesome on its own, and makes the perfect salad to bring to your next picnic or potluck.

Simple egg salad sandwich

Simple Egg Salad

Spring is around the corner and it’s the perfect time for cold sandwiches like egg or chicken salad. Egg salad is such a simple weeknight sandwich to whip up, especially if you have a batch of hardboiled eggs ready to go. Most egg salad recipes contain mayonnaise, but I love this one because it uses Greek yogurt in lieu of traditional mayonnaise.

Roasted red pepper and tomato soup

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

I love that I can make soup ahead of time and then re-heat it later for dinner or for lunch throughout the week. Soup is just so uncomplicated, pure and so darn easy to make. Once you make a homemade soup, you will never go back to the canned variety.
