Asian Pear Salad with Gorgonzola and Toasted Pistachios

Asian pear is a wonderful ingredient that doesn’t get used nearly enough in American households. It has a crisp, firm texture and a light body. The gorgonzola and toasted nuts add a depth of flavor to your bowl. They also add great protein to your meal.

Baked Tofu Salad with Broccoli and Pineapple

This light salad with tropical notes is a great way to kick off a week of salad recipes. As the weather is warming, we all want to eat healthier to get back into beach shape by Memorial Day weekend, so give it a try! The dressing is delicious, too.

Dandelion Salad

You probably grew up simply thinking of dandelions as weeds. That should change, starting now. Dandelions are a perfect salad green that you can harvest straight from your yard. Just make sure you and your neighbors don’t use any strong pesticides before you commit to eating them.

Tangy Rhubarb Salsa

Wondering what to do with all this rhubarb? Pie and jam are not your only options. This rhubarb salsa has enough kick to light up any meal. Though some people would serve it with chips, I actually like to serve it as a garnish on some fried chili tofu for that Caribbean feel.

Simple Steamed Asparagus

Love it or hate it, spring is when asparagus comes back into our lives. This vegetable has such a strong and unique flavor, it almost seems a shame to cover it with anything. So why bother? This simple steam treatment with a little bit of butter really makes this vegetable shine.
