Take a box of greens. Add a box of grape tomatoes. Drizzle dressing. Add cheese and toasted bread crumbs. What could be simpler?

You know eating lots of veggies every day is important for optimal health.

What gets in the way?

If you just feel like you don't have a lot of time to prep veggies, you're not alone. Some people say veggies just don't taste great. Either sound like you?

If so, you need this salad. It's so quick to make and a great way to get nutrient-...

Have you ever had a salad that you just want to DEVOUR day after day?

This is one of those salads for me! It's kind of like a fresh spring roll but without the roll. The combo of crunch and all the flavours -- it's like a party in your mouth!!

This isn't your typical salad. There's no leafy greens in here (But you could add chopped romaine if you want. I won't stop you.)

It's a super summer salad for a potluck, picnic, patio party or packed lunch, because ther...

Salad bar suppers are a staple in the summer at our house – especially after farmers market visits. I basically set it up the salad bar with all the salad-y stuff: greens, veggies, fruits, proteins, toppers and a dynamite dressing or two. The combos are endless.

Have you ever wonder what happens in a dietitian’s kitchen? A whole lot of recipe creation, cooking, baking, and eating! Dietitians love delicious food.

Cooking is my creative outlet, my stress-reliever, my boredom-buster and my passion. Crafting and sharing simple, drool-worthy, nutritious food ideas so you can be strong and vibrant seriou...

Have you ever been to a summer back yard party and tried eating salad with a plastic fork while balancing a flimsy paper plate on your lap? Not fun! Am I right? Then you’ll appreciate this salad on a stick!

  • The salad sticks can be made the day ahead so, on the day of the party, you’ll spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying your friends.

  • They are totally portable if...

Looking for a sweet little salad that will knock the socks off your Canada Day barbecue guests? This is it!

The crunchy-ness of cucumbers and red pepper works perfectly with the juicy-ness of strawberries, peppery-ness of arugula, bite of the green onion and tang of creamy goat cheese.

A little Canadian maple syrup drizzle dressing offers a light hint of sweet that makes this salad sensational. (My husband even comes back for seconds!)

I partnered with my frie...

This is the kale salad that made my sister fall in love with kale. Well, at least she fell in love with this salad. If you're not into kale, this salad might just make you a convert too. It is THE Must Try Kale Salad.

And what’s not to love? It’s super garlicky with a tasty tang of lemon and a salty bite from the pecorino. Cue the drooling.

Nutritionally speaking, kale is packed with nutrients, like vitamin C and beta-carotene, two nutrients that get top bill...
