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.
Raw Broccoli and Tomato SaladFebruary 27th, 2016 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This is easy and refreshing tasting salad of few ingredients: all you need is fresh broccoli crown, few tomatoes, onion and some greens.
It is important to use broccoli crown as it is normally more soft and less chewy than more mature pieces.
Raw broccoli and tomato salad pairs well with meat or poultry courses.
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.
Cucumber and Dill SaladMay 23rd, 2015 in Salads, Sides by Julia Volhina
This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.
Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.
I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.
Raw Vegetables and Chicken Salad with FetaMarch 14th, 2015 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This salad is more advanced version evolved from Raw Vegetable Salad with Feta.
I added few ingredients: kale, celery, zucchini, corn, olives, mushrooms and a protein source, boiled chicken, to make things a bit more interesting.
I take this salad ingredients with me and slice them up at work for a healthy lunch. It only takes few minutes to do.
By the way, if you boil chicken right before making the salad, make sure you let it cool down to room temperature first.
Apple, Sorrel and Lettuce SaladDecember 6th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
It seems to me that sorrel isn’t something very popular in cooking in this part of the world.
But just in case if you were looking for some recipe using it, here is one: fresh raw salad with sorrel, apple and romaine lettuce dressed with lemon juice and honey.
If dressing seems too sour for you, replace some juice with water and increase amount of honey, that should do the trick.
