Cubbys Beet & Goat Cheese Salad

Cubby’s Beet & Goat Cheese Salad

I haven’t posted a big ol’ salad for a while and for a while I’ve been intrigued by this Cubby’s Beet & Goat Cheese Salad. As stated on Cubby’s website, the salad is a mix of Spring Greens, Roasted Red Beets, Toasted Pistachios, Goat Cheese, Avocado, Orange Slices, Orange Zest, and Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette.

So Happy New Year’s, everyone! I can’t believe it’s New Year’s Eve, already! So what do you do for New Year’s Eve? Me, I’m kind of an old curmudgeon. I mean back in the day I’d go out with the girls but these days I’m usually perfectly happy to stay in, stay warm & safe and maybe stay up till midnight.

Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes

Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes

My little cherry tomato plant has been a bit stingy, probably because I just put it in a big pot and kind of left in the northeast corner of my back steps for the first half of its miserable existence. Then I tossed it out where there’s some good southern exposure. It was a shock for him. But finally, he adjusted to the August heat and started putting out! So I decided to make Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes.

Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers with Greek Brown Rice Salad (made with Instant Pot Brown Rice)

Greek Brown Rice Salad

I’ve been on a bit of a Meditteranean kick. I’m trying to health up the rest of the summer, at least until Labor Day comes. Besides it’s August and it’s hot and it’s humid (whine whine whine) and I want to eat (and cook) cool and light. And so I made Greek Brown Rice Salad to go with my soon to be posted Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers.

I just did a post for Horiatiki Greek Salad not too long ago. Gosh, that was good. And I wanted to carry some of those flavors forward with a little twist. Funny how I listed so many variations of our American Style Greek Salads, but I didn’t mention or think about combining it with rice, let alone brown rice.

Salad with Smoky Sheet Tray Roasted Vegetables & Barley

Salad with Smoky Sheet Tray Roasted Vegetables & Barley

A bit of cooked Barley was the “by-product” of my Healthy Lemon Ginger Barley Water recipe awhile back. Well, if you know me, you know I try to waste nothing, and sure didn’t want to waste a morsel of wonderful, chewy, nutty Barley. (I love it, and so should you, btw! It’s really good for you!) And so I went on a quest and that quest ended in this Salad with Smoky Sheet Tray Roasted Vegetables & Barley. It’s a lot to use a cup of Barley, huh?!

I’m betting you’ve had Horiatiki Greek Salad before even if you don’t know what the heck Horiatiki is! It’s just the Greek name for that cucumber tomato salad that’s so ubiquitous (look at me with all the big words, today!) all over the United States. And in Greece, too, from what I understand, where it originated.

So over the long weekend, temps way up in the 90’s (oh why is the weather so craaaazy this year?) I somehow got the idea that I wanted some of that Old Fashioned Tuna Macaroni Salad. You know the one I mean, all cool, creamy deliciousness with a few crunchy veggies and that tuna that somehow melds in and makes everything so rich.

Fruited Chicken Salad with Honey Dijon

fruited chicken salad with honey dijon by the frugal hausfrau

Way back when, my sister and I were discussing what should be on the menu for a family get together and we got down to the salad dressing. “Honey Dijon?” I asked. It was kind of a new thing then. “No one likes that,” she said. But I didn’t say, “I do, I do!” And goodness help me, I do.  Home-made at least. Don’t tell my sis!
