Mixed Field Greens with Arugula Oil and Lemon Vinaigrette

Joel could eat salad everyday! Although he would be okay with the same salad every night, I on the other hand, have to have some variety. I guess foodies just like to experience different flavors and ingredients. Anna assigned me “Mixed Field Greens with Arugula Oil and Lemon Vinaigrette” as the salad for her “Nantucket” themed Gr8 dinner. I was excited to get this recipe and have another salad dressing in my repertoire. This dressing is…

When serving eight people it is also good to have recipes that are somewhat easy and can be prepared ahead of time. This…

Terrific Tomato Burrata Salad

Whenever I ask Joel what he wants for dinner, his response is almost always, “well, let’s grill something and make a salad.” Honestly, I get so tired of making a basic green salad. It is fun to change it up once in awhile and certainly easy to do. We both love love love tomatoes; add some burrata and well, heaven! Burrata, meaning “buttery” in Italian, is a fresh Italian cheese made with mozzarella and…
