Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

In the summer heat (and it has been so hot & so humid, here) I can hardly get enough cool, crunchy salads. Here’s a fantastic crunchy little salad with a little bit of a Thai twist. That this is more American Thai  than Thai doesn’t detract from the utter deliciousness.

Simple Cherry Tomato Salad

My folks love tomatoes. Any tomatoes. Me, I’m a sucker for a fresh garden tomato and otherwise they leave me cold. So when I come across tomatoes that could use a little help, I jazz them up a bit. Not that these lovelies in the photos needed any help, mind you.

Thai Inspired Cabbage Salad

A few nights ago, we made these marvelous Thai Curry Chicken Skewers from the Thankful Heart. They were a huge hit, so be sure to click over and explore Rhonda’s blog – you are guaranteed to find something you’ll want to make. But I needed a side for these skewers. Something fast, delish and easy.

Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw

I’ve kind of fallen in love with this recipe, which is just a component in a meal to come. So I guess it’s a “teaser” recipe. Bright and crunchy with a Vietnamese “flair” this is a marvelous slaw to serve with all kinds of things.

Arugula, Goat Cheese & Beet Salad

Have I ever told you I’m wild about Beets? We had a rough start, beets and I did, way back in elementary school. Canned beets, blech! But garden fresh beets? They’re another story altogether. So if you haven’t had beets in awhile, “…all I’ma sayin’ is give beets a chance…” ♬
