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.

Eggplant Roast with Vegetables

May 17th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is nice looking dish which can be served as either a main entree, a side dish, or an appetizer.

It contains no meat, just eggplant, bell pepper, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese.

Eggplant roasted this way looks festive (and will for sure fit nicely on a holiday table), and it is also pretty easy to do.

One medium size eggplant will produce 2-3 servings.

Salad with Chicken and Fresh Vegetables

March 8th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

Spring is right around the corner. And even though nowadays you can buy fresh vegetables all year around, in spring they taste somehow special. Maybe this is a way how body let’s you know it needs to be replenished with vitamins.

This is why I am publishing this recipe for salad made of fresh bell peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes with boiled white chicken meat and a bit of cheese.

By the way, mayo in the dressing can be mixed with sour cream for skinnier version.

Crabsticks, Beans, Tomato, Bell Pepper and Cheese Salad

January 11th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

One more salad for holiday table: lighter salad with crab sticks, red beans, tomatoes, bell pepper and cheese. It is pretty fast to make because doesn’t require any prep work: nothing to boil or cook prior to assembling.

I used italian blend of shredded cheese, but any hard cheese you like will work. If you have whole piece of cheese, you can dice it instead of shredding.

Adjust amount of garlic to your liking, if whole clove seems a bit too much use only half of it.

Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad Recipe

January 4th, 2014 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

This unusual combination of ingredients yields pretty interesting salad. And it tastes best then prepared right before serving.

Original recipe calls for 10 quail eggs, but I find them somehow hard to find here, so I used 2 chicken eggs as replacement.

Pineapples themselves are optional ingredient, you can skip on them if you wish so, but with them salad tastes more interesting.

Ricotta Cheese Stuffed Pasta

November 30th, 2013 in Main Dish Recipes, No-meat, Pasta by Julia Volhina

This is my first take on stuffed jumbo pasta shells, but I will must say it will not not be last: there are so many stuffings these may work nicely with.

In this recipe pasta is stuffed with five cheeses (ricotta, provolone, mozzarella and romano), fresh parsley and egg mix.

For sauce I tried something new too: that is canned crushed tomatoes, usually I avoid using canned vegetables, but these worked well for sauce and saved me quite some time too.

Tomato and Chicken Salad

November 9th, 2013 in Salad Recipes by Julia Volhina

Quick to make and simple salad with chicken meat and tomatoes seasoned with mayo and garlic.

Tomatoes will produce juice after cutting, so it is better to assemble this salad right before you plan to serve it.

A lot in this salad will depend on how tasty tomatoes are, so pick good and ripe ones.
