Raw Beets and Cabbage SaladDecember 16th, 2017 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Pretty simple yet pretty festive and colorful raw cabbage salad with red beets, greens and a bit of onion dressed with mayo (all though you can go for a sunflower or olive oil for healthier option).
Raw cabbage is packed with vitamins, especially vitamins K and C, but also B6 and folate. And beets high in folate and manganese. A good combination for the winter.
It is also quite filling. So a good choice if you are trying to get some fiber in.
Apple and Cucumber Salad with ChickenAugust 12th, 2017 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Light chicken salad, great on its own, as a side or on the sandwich.
Chicken thighs work great in this recipe, breast would be “skinnier” option. Alternatively rotisserie chicken leftovers would do as well.
If you are cooking chicken yourself, make sure it is cooled down to room temperature before slicing it for the salad.
You can get creative with dressing here: between low fat yoghurt, mix of yogurt with sour cream or mayo or just mayo itself. Choose to the taste or/and amount of calories.
Chicken, Tomato and Mushroom SaladApril 22nd, 2017 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Any time is a good time for a salad. Especially if it is a chicken salad loaded with protein, in a great combination with tomatoes and mushrooms.
This salad can be an entry on its own or a side to another dish.
I used boiled chicken for this one, however leftover rotisserie chicken or turkey will work here as well.
If you want to go lighter on calories with this recipe, use light mayo, or a combination of yogurt and mustard.
Baked Chicken Thighs in Mustard Soy SauceMay 7th, 2016 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
Chicken thighs baked in mustard and soy sauce is one of these recipes to use when you need to cook something delicious while spending minimum effort on it.
All you need to do is to whip a sauce together, cover chicken with it and stick it into the oven – cooking doesn’t get any easier than this.
Chicken thighs are juicy and easy to cook without much risk of over drying the meat, so this recipe produces very tender and juicy chicken meat with a hint of spices from curry and mustard.
Baked Chicken Rolls with Cheese and ButterFebruary 13th, 2016 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
These resemble chicken kiev for the part that they are chicken rolls which are stuffed with garlicky butter. But they are much easier to make and are a bit healthier: because of no breading and no deep frying.
Chicken thin cutlets cut works perfectly for this one (if you can buy it), but whole breast can be sliced into cutlets as well, it will just be slightly more work to do to make sure slices are even and there are no holes in the chicken so stuffing doesn’t leak when cooking.
Butter and cheese stuffed chicken rolls taste great when served hot, right out the oven. Good when paired with mashed or baked potatoes. Perfect for romantic or celebratory dinner.
Liver, Carrot and Egg SaladJanuary 2nd, 2016 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Unusually tasting salad for a celebratory table or if you want to add a bit more liver in your diet (for example to consume more iron or other nutrients it is reach on).
As title says, fried liver is the base of the salad, accompanied by fried carrots and onions and boiled eggs. Probably it is not the lightest of the salads other there, but again, rich in nutrients and pretty filling.
Ingredients of the salad can be cooked and mixed together in advance, store them in the fridge and then add mayo 20-30 mins before serving it.
Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style CarrotsAugust 16th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Yet another one chicken salad to be added to my list of recipes: tender chicken meat, boiled eggs, tasty cucumbers and spicy carrots prepare in korean style.
This salad will work great as a side or appetizer, or as a lunch meal itself, especially if you need something to take with you. It can be served plain, in a sandwich or in a wrap.
Salad can be dressed with a mix of mayo and sour cream instead of the mayo alone, if you are looking for healthier option.
