Antipasto Salad

Recipe: Antipasto Salad

I’m just going to come out and say it: I love this salad. It’s easy, substantial, full-flavored, and even company worthy. It’s a satisfying and gorgeous summer dinner for enjoying al fresco with a generous pour of red wine. If you plan this during a week when you’re having a Primal pizza (here) you just […]

Avocado Tuna Salad

Recipe: Quick & Dirty! Avocado Tuna Salad

You know that Oh-Crap-There’s-Nothing-in-the-Fridge feeling? It seems to happen to me most at lunchtime. And it can be hard to whip up a Paleo-friendly lunch with the dregs of what’s on hand. My suggestion is to make sure you have plenty of good tuna in the pantry. I feel lucky to have access to Sweet […]

Crunchy Salad w/ Chicken

Recipe: Crunchy Salad w/ Chicken

I don’t know anything about the philosophy behind eating raw foods—I’m not a raw foodie—but I certainly felt virtuous eating this salad chock full of goodies. There’s no doubt we evolved eating a lot of our food raw, so it’s probably not such a bad thing once in a while. Besides, don’t we all need […]

Masala Grilled Chicken w/ Lemon-Mint Salad

Recipe: Masala Grilled Chicken w/ Lemon-Mint Salad

Garam masala is a secret weapon for your pantry. No two masalas are the same (all “masala” means is “spice mix”, though it always connotes East Indian flavors), so if you find one you like, stock up on it. Not only does it make an excellent chili (here), but it’s equally at home on the […]

Bacon, Apple, Avocado Salad

Recipe: Bacon Apple Avocado Salad

This salad has a long history with me. The recipe belongs to an ex-of-mine’s mother, and boy, am I glad I got this before we broke up! For our purposes today, of course, it’s been tweaked and Primalized. It can function as a substantial side dish or alone as lunch or dinner. It’s also pretty […]

Wasabi-Soy Grilled Tuna on Arugula

Recipe: Sesame-Wasabi Grilled Tuna on Arugula

Tuna is a fantastic choice for the grill. It’s a meaty, oily fish that stays together well, as long as you don’t overcook it. It’s versatile. And it’s satisfying in a way that some lighter fish just can’t be without a lot of gussying up. I was ready for a change of pace, especially since […]

Turnip, Radish, Avocado Salad

Recipe: Turnip, Radish, Avocado Salad

Here’s a simple and delicious salad that highlights some rather humble vegetables. I’ll even give you three—that’s right, THREE!—salad dressing options so you can adapt it to the feng shui of your main course. The crunch of these root veggies is a wonderful contrast to meat dishes, especially with the heat of summer upon us. […]

Sesame Beef Salad

Recipe: Sesame Beef Salad

Well, kids, at this point it looks like most recipes going forward will be either a salad or a hunk of meat on the grill. It’s just that time of year. So here’s another lettuce-based dish for you. I don’t do much with ground beef beyond the expected: burgers, chili, lettuce-leaf tacos. Lately I’ve been […]

Steak Salad w/ Lime-Cumin Yogurt Dressing

Recipe: Steak Salad w/ Lime-Cumin Yogurt Dressing

Whenever steak’s on the menu, I’ve started cooking more than I know we can eat. Steak leftovers will never go to waste in this house: steak n’ eggs, steak and avocado, steak stir-fry. It’s easily repurposed into something drool-worthy. Like this BAS. Dressing sound familiar? It is (here), but slightly retooled for the steak. I […]

Grilled Sausage BAS

Recipe: Grilled Sausage BAS with Lemon-Feta Dressing

My neighbors must think I’m crazy, but anytime the sun peeks out for a nanosecond between cloudbursts, I’m out there on the back deck grilling. Soon, we’ll have nothing but months of sunshine, but until then, I’m taking advantage of every sunbeam I get. I had some amazing Moroccan-spiced goat sausages in the freezer, so […]
