Thanksgiving. It’s over. Or is it? If you need Leftover Turkey ideas, be sure to see my 12 Days of Turkey, which is now a collection of over 40 recipes for T-Day leftovers. Hopefully, you had a big salad like this Winter Salad with Avocado, Pomegranate & Maple Roasted Pecans for Thanksgiving. If not, maybe make it, now. And toss some leftover turkey in it if you’d like.
With the holiday coming up, I’m craving what seems to be commonly dubbed Cold “Asian” Peanut Noodle salad. This is a great dish for a party, cook out or a potluck, Really, you never know who might show up at a party and this is popular with vegetarians and meat eaters, alike.

I think I might have been a little cruel this last week. I’ve been mercilessly teasing you with this Southwestern Steak Salad on some of my prior posts. It’s seriously delish. Seriously noteworthy. You’ll need to make this one; it has something for everyone.
I don’t know why this Steak Salad is called “California” Steak salad, but I bet those “California cows” aren’t too happy about that turn of events! I think it’s because of the avocado. Regardless of how happy this particular cow was, this salad is delish!
This spectacular salad was stolen – or at least the idea of it was. This is my version of a Taphouse Salad, inspired by a beer pub in Sioux Falls, Taphouse 41. First of all, I never would have thought to order such a thing – my Dad did. Then I salivated over his meal while I ate mine.
Can a girl have too many chicken salad recipes? According to my recipe box, probably not! Especially when one of them transitions out of the dog days of summer into crisp, cool fall as well as this one does. After all, nothing says fall to us Northerners quite like wild rice!
I wasn’t just going on and on about the Chickpea in previous post for the fun of it! 🙂 I am absolutely enamoured by this main dish salad. It’s full of fantastic good for you ingredients: Spinach, Chickpeas, Olives and Oven Roasted Cauliflower and is set off beautifully by the home-made dressing.
I’ve been making this Chicken & Fruit Salad for years, originally culled from Cooking Light. It’s just such a gorgeous salad, full of all kinds of great things and it’s all set off by a creamy raspberry dressing. It’s one of my favorite ways to make sure I get some fruit in my diet along with a few greens. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing better.
I know these Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salads are popular at Thanksgiving, but it would be a shame to think of Brussels Sprouts only then. In my area, Brussels come in and look great from fall right through late spring. So while the rhubarb in my area is only a few inches tall, the asparagus isn’t in, I’m enjoying this! It’s a bit lighter and more spring-like than many Shaved Salads.
