Apple, Sorrel and Lettuce Salad

December 6th, 2014 in Salad Recipes 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.

Walnut Cranberry Chicken Salad

September 27th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is a recipe for chicken salad made with crunchy walnuts and celery, dried cranberries and dressed with mayo.

It is pretty easy to do. All you need to do is to boil and dice chicken, slice celery and add rest of ingredients together.

This salad can be served as it is or on a bed of lettuce leaves as a salad entree. It also can be wrapped in a tortilla or served in a bread sandwich.

Raw Vegetable Salad with Feta

August 30th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

I am trying to eat my vegetables raw at the moment (losing some weight, trying to eat more healthy, running and such). So this is a salad which I make for myself for lunch at work to accomplish this.

It takes about 10 mins to do all the slicing and dicing. And maybe 5 more for cleaning and packing.

Occasionally I add to it raw corn, onions, spinach, lettuce to vary things up, but cucumbers, tomatoes, mini peppers and avocado are always present.

Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style Carrots

August 16th, 2014 in Salad Recipes 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.

Korean Style Carrots

August 9th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Salad Recipes, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Korean style carrots (“morkovka po-korejski”) is a popular in post-USSR countries dish which is usually served as salad, side dish or relish.

Often it is also served on hot dogs along with sausage inside the bun.

These pretty spicy carrots are great side for meats or poultry. They can also be used as one of ingredients for salads and other dishes.

Fruit Salad with Yogurt

August 2nd, 2014 in Desserts, Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

Here is your step away from something usually called a dessert: fresh fruit salad dressed with plain yogurt.

No flour, no sugar, almost no fat (if you use low-fat yogurt); only fresh raw fruits loaded with vitamins and tons of good nutrients.

Besides being a dessert, this salad can be great choice for breakfast or lunch or just a snack when you need it.

You can mix and match fruits to your liking for this one. I used pineapples, banana, orange, apple, kiwi and pear. Mint is also optional and can be skipped it if you don’t like it.

Chicken, Prunes and Cucumber Salad

July 12th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

This salad has unusual ingredients combination: prunes, eggs, cucumber, walnuts and chicken, as the title says.

There is no onions or garlic, so it can be served early in the day as well later.

It is also one of few salads in my recipe inventory which does not call for mayo.
