I’m a huge fan of roasted potatoes (especially Smoky Roasted Potatoes) so when I saw a recipe that used roasted rather than boiled potatoes for a salad, I was eager to try it.

My love for Funky Salads is well documented here at Idiot’s Kitchen and Greek Green Bean Salad has quickly shot to the top of that list. Fresh green beans are the star of the show here. Cooked until just tender crisp, they get a nice salty kick in the pants from some crumbled feta cheese. […]

Do you remember that old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercial? “You got chocolate in my peanut butter!” “Well, you got peanut butter on my chocolate!” I feel exactly that way about Cool Cucumber Corn & Avocado Salad! You know how fond I am of my funky salads so it was only a matter of time […]

It’s hot here. It’s early May and it’s already hot here.  I think I can keep the whining somewhat in check by eating another bowl of Cucumber & Avocado Salad. This is ridiculously easy and SO good. You get the cool, crisp, crunchiness of the cucumber and the creaminess of the avocado. It’s a match […]
