These days, I’m not the only one hesitating to make regular grocery runs. Yet I run out of ‘fresh’ food quickly, and I love salads!
So I came up with this salad, made from 4 cans. It’s delicious, and if you can find low or no sodium veggies, it’s also healthy.
I started with these “Potato Cheddar Bites,” but kept simplifying. One time I had no eggs, another time I forgot the breadcrumbs, and often I didn’t have onion around. It came down to just TWO ingredients: shredded potato, and shredded cheese. That’s it. And they’re amazing!
A special guest post from the expert on PB&J’s, The Husband. In recent weeks, I have even infected the devout chocolate-freak in my household to gratuitously dip into whipped Peanut Butter for snacks, while she is working from home.
However, today– five+ years since my last post– I do not write (merely) to brag. I, Matthew Greenfield, have today discovered a most delectable pairing/pearing that will make you pecan-can with joy…
This salad wasn’t based on any one recipe, but on several non-mayo potato recipes. In addition to being delicious, it’s also very filling.
This is definitely a salad where you can leave out pretty much anything – other than the potatoes – and it will still work.
Loosely based on a recipe that I got in a class from Judi Strauss, this recipe has been a hit at potlucks and family gatherings.
It’s pretty easy to make, though if you cook the onions, that can take some time.
It is best served warm, but you can bake it at home and reheat in the microwave, and it turns out well.
Delicious turkey bites
A variation of my first turkey bites, worth writing down.
The main difference was making these on the stove, vs baking them. Possibly a tad bit more oil, but not much, and even more delicious. The picture here is about 1 day after I made the turkey bites – my daughter, husband, and I had devoured almost all of them. Continue reading
My husband and several of our friends have enjoyed this salad, as have I! It’s pretty easy to make, and totally delicious.
While my toddler (almost 3) doesn’t go in much for salads, she enjoyed the pieces of this separated out on her plate – she had some of the goat cheese, cranberries, kale, and chicken.
My toddler was crazy about processed turkey bites from Target. I wasn’t thrilled about them, especially the sodium. So I experimented and created my own that she just loves! As do my husband and I.
The picture is from a slightly earlier, less amazing, batch, but you get the idea. I make them pretty small – one or two bites for an adult or 4-5 bites for a toddler.
Warning – these are pretty addictive… my husband, toddler and I went through most of a batch today!
Inspired by this Cabbage and Feta Salad, I’ve created my own go-to, easy, delicious salad!
This has become something of a staple for me – I’ll make it for weeks and weeks in a row, sometimes. It’s easy to make, especially if you buy items pre-cut. It’s delicious. It’s (relatively) healthy, and filling if you eat enough of it. I love taking a large container of it into work. It keeps well for about 4-5 days, depending on the cheese.
I’ve been getting store bought Tikka Masala sauce and throwing roasted veggies and chicken in it for the past few weeks (when I like a dish, I really like a dish). While that’s delicious and quick, it’s probably not the healthiest. So today I decided to make my own sauce. This is based on this Skinny Chicken Tikka Masala recipe, but with on what I had on hand (and with veggies in place of chicken). Mom, this one’s for you 😉 Continue reading
