Greens with Roasted Butternut Squash and Pomegranate Vinaigrette:

You may be noticing a theme arising… pomegranates. They just happen to be in season around the holidays, so why not use them as often as you are able? I offer a beautiful pomegranate vinaigrette on  this healthy, colorful salad!

Baby Spinach with Roasted Carrots and Couscous

This spinach salad with roasted carrots and Israeli couscous is not only beautiful, it’s also totally unique! This one is one of my all time favorites. If spinach isn’t your jam, you can always make this salad with baby greens.

This spinach salad doesn’t look like much, but let me tell you, it is pretty incredible! The white balsamic dressing and a bite of sea salt make this simple salad truly extraordinary!

A crunchy chopped salad made with romaine, caramelized nuts, aged gouda and diced apples, all drizzled with a sweet tangy apple vinaigrette! And that aged gouda…is so, so gouda!
