Red Beans and Crab Stick SaladMarch 10th, 2018 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Need some beans in your life? Try this quick salad.
Unusual combination of crab stick, beans, eggs and greens, but very gentle taste I would say.
The combination of crab stick and eggs is something one can never be wrong with, that is if you like both eggs and crab stick of course.
This takes minutes to assemble, especially if you boil eggs in advance. If you don’t, make sure they are cooled down till room temperature before cutting them for the salad.
Noodle Salad with Canadian Bacon and VeggiesFebruary 24th, 2018 in Main Dishes, Pasta, Salads by Julia Volhina
Various pasta or noodle salads is something totally unusual to the place where I can from.
But ever since I tried one, I am totally in love (my fitness-geeky-trying-to-be-conscious self is a bit less so, but sometimes it needs a break too).
This salad comes with a nice pack of veggies: tomatoes, bell peppers, corn. If you use whole wheat noodles and close your eyes on cheese and mayo we can almost call it healthy, right?
Fusilli or elbow pasta will work good here, other types may work too (okey, maybe be not spaghetti, but I think that is obvious). Tri-color pasta will make salad more festive, give it try if you need more color in your life…
Napa Cabbage and Chicken SaladFebruary 10th, 2018 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Napa cabbage is tender and juicy and is generally good choice for salads: doesn’t require any extra work to soften it up.
As any cabbage, it is high on vitamin C, so it is good choice of food for that flu and cold season.
This is also a salad to do if you got some leftover chicken and need to find some use for it: just remove skin and bones.
Any chicken meat will do, I boiled some thighs to prepare this post.
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.
