Our Sesame Tahini Dressing does an incredible job of coating the wild rice with juicy flavor. Add plenty of fresh veggies, plus nuts or seeds for crunch and dried fruit for a little sweet tang. Serve it as a side or make it the main course! This versatile rice salad can be whatever you’d like it to be!
This Valentine’s Day inspired salad is light, refreshing and delicious! Treat yourself to a lunch that feels special and indulgent, but also won’t make you overly full for your date night. Our Champagne Vinaigrette creates an elegant, cohesive flavor, transforming ordinary quinoa into a sophisticated treat. Make extra to use as a topping over a bed of spinach or arugula, or bring in a big bowl for your coworkers as a Valentine’s Day gift!
If you’re not following @rosalierouge go change that ASAP! Not only does Kelsey post tons of great recipe ideas, but she blogs about amazing beauty products and fashion items, too. She’s also a big fan of Dress It Up Dressing, and we fell in love with her Crispy Chicken Ranch Salad recipe (copied for you below)!
This spinach salad is SUPER easy to make, especially once you have the chicken and chickpeas prepped. You can heat it up throughout the week, or eat it cold, and regardless, it tastes amazing with the dressing. I like to add in some couscous to add in some healthy and filling carbs. This salad would also be amazing with tomatoes, but sadly I was out.
I’m one of those people that loves rosemary and thinks there are places it just belongs: potatoes, bread, Ina Garten’s toasted cashew recipe. It brings a smell before it brings a taste, becoming a double sensory delight.
Having made the Barefoot Contessa recipe for cashews numerous times, I decided to apply the same principle to roasting chickpeas. They replace croutons in my salads most days, and are easy as can be to make in a variety of different flavors. They’re also great for snacking on as-is.
I thought roasting chickpeas was one of the simplest most delightful things you could do in the kitchen, until I met the lovely Jennifer Perillo who asked, “Do you peal the skins off the chickpeas?” No! I didn’t. I have 3 minutes to devote to the task of roasting the little gems, so there is no peeling. That’s when I learned that for the crispiest, crunchiest chick peas, you have to take the skin off.
Whether or not you choose to take this extra step, I leave to you. I won’t ask; you needn’t tell. (I know what I do. And I know what I’ll do when Jennifer’s coming over).
