Balsamic Bacon Vinaigrette

Bacon Balsamic Vinaigrette from the famed Magnolia Grill. Perfect for summer or fall (or anytime!) Easy, too.

I’ve never eaten at the famed Magnolia Grill in Durham, North Carolina. I heard of it only through recipes that had popped up in food magazines here and there. That’s where I got the recipe, years ago, for Balsamic Bacon Vinaigrette.

Surprise. I’m making a recipe for Bacon Ranch Potato Salad (coming up next.) A surprise because those that know me know I don’t like Ranch. Uh, hunh, no, no, nope.

Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing

Five minute fresh & healthy dressing that can go on almost anything!

I think I talked last week about being a little obsessed about my spice mixes & concoctions – If you’re a follower, you probably already know I’m just as obsessive about my salad dressings! Today I’m obsessive about this Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing in particular.

Easy Home-Made Greek Yogurt Ranch

Easy Greek Yogurt Ranch with buttermilk & dried herbs

I have a confession – I’ve never warmed up to Ranch dressing. Everyone I know loves it…but not me. Sometimes I think I’m a lone hold out. Until now.

Updated Panzanella Salad

Updated Panzanella - the salad is great, but the croutons are heaven!

When I came across an article on line from the Seattle Times about Panzanella, I knew some of my tomatoes were destined for greatness. There was a Panzanella I knew I’d love! One with lovely, slightly crisp, slightly chewy home-made “croutons” in it.

Harvest Wild Rice Salad with Citrus Dressing

Harvest Wild Rice Salad with Oranges, apples & pears & a citrus vinaigrette

I recently made the Stuffed Chicken Roast from Better Home & Garden’s December 2015 issue – I couldn’t help but be inspired by their Harvest Wild Rice Salad, served alongside. Gorgeous greens, wild rice and a citrus dressing caught my eye. Toss in a few apples, pears and toasted pecans and sprinkle on a few dried cranberries or cherries and you have a salad!

Classic Vinaigrette for Savory or Fruit Salads

Thanksgiving week is upon us, and I have yet to post a Thanksgiving recipe. I wanted to, but the universe must be conspiring against me! An apple strudel turned out to be a little lackluster (although we ate it all!) and needs to tweaked and remade. A coffee cake turned bizarre when all the Struesel topping sunk to the bottom. (We are working on finishing that one right now!)
