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.
Tuna and Mozzarella SaladOctober 8th, 2016 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Tuna and Mozzarella salad is my goto light salad with a bit of protein. It works great for training days, because I don’t feel hungry after it but I also don’t feel like I eat whole bunch of unhealthy stuff.
A lot in this salad depends on the taste of tuna, so use the kind of tuna you like. If you plan to use tuna canned in oil, you may reduce amount of oil in the salad dressing to balance calories consumed.
Fresh corn they sell here in US is usually soft, sweet and juicy, so I use it for this salad myself, however canned corn works just as well.
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.
Halloween Spider Decoration for Deviled EggsSeptember 21st, 2013 in Food Decoration by Julia Volhina
Many stores started moving their Halloween products to prime spots in preparation to the holiday.
It seems a bit early to me, but hey, at least these are not Thanksgiving turkeys or Christmas decorations yet (even though some shops are probably thinking about dusting off some of these too).
So I decided to get on this train as well, and this week post will be not really a recipe (even though it has big deal to do with food), but rather a food decoration how-to.
This is a first one for me, so I hope you like it. Any kind of deviled eggs will look good with these spiders on, however choose these which also taste good with olives you are going to use.
Veal Rolls with Feta Cheese, Garlic and OlivesApril 20th, 2013 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina
This recipe is not so budgety, prices for veal in US are somewhat high, but I like veal meat: it is lean and tender.
To reduce cost a bit, another part of veal can be substituted for scallopini here, pieces should be sliced thin, beef will do too but may need to be cooked longer to be tender.
Use any kind of white wine you like, it can be also served later with the course.
Greek Salad (Russian Variant)September 5th, 2009 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This is the recipe of Greek Salad how I used to eat it. This is prepared of mix of fresh vegetables with a light hint of Greece in mix of oregano with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice, enriched by taste and texture of feta cheese.
Please note, the recipe I use can be very far related to the original greek recipe. I never been to Greece and mostly enjoy Greek cuisine from what I can find in local shops and restaurants.
This particular recipe describes the way how Greek Salad is prepared in Russia, so maybe it should be called Russian Greek Salad instead 🙂 Enjoy!
Green Tuna SaladJanuary 3rd, 2009 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This good, nutritious and light salad with tuna and lettuce is an easy way to watch your weight without feeling hungry all the time.
Tuna is great source of protein and can also provide with omega-3 fatty acids if canned properly, so check the label on the can before choosing it for the salad.
Green tuna salad is pretty easy and fast to do, great choice for lunch or light dinner.
