    Black Bean & Corn Salad with Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette

    With black beans, corn, bell peppers and avocado in a smoky and sweet chipotle vinaigrette, this salad is always a crowd-pleaser -- and it's perfect for entertaining because you can make it ahead of time. GET THE RECIPE

  2. Strawberry-Orange-Salad-with-Syrup

    Strawberry and Orange Salad with Citrus Syrup & Fresh Mint

    This is one of my favorite fruit salads, and it’s such a nice change of pace from the standard mix of pre-cut fruit from the supermarket. I usually serve it for brunch — it dresses up the table and pairs well with savory quiche and casserole dishes – but it’s also wonderful for dessert served with shortcake and whipped cream.

    Inspired by the popular Thai Crunch Salad served at California Pizza Kitchen, this salad is made with crisp Napa cabbage, crunchy vegetables and edamame but it’s the creamy peanut dressing that makes it so good; I guarantee you’ll want to put it on everything! GET THE RECIPE

  5. thai-quinoa-salad-2
