Classic Tabbouleh Salad – Grandma Style

A classic tabbouleh salad recipe, made in the style of my grandmother. Bright flavors, fresh ingredients, and a beautiful presentation make this salad a favorite!

Tabbouleh is one of those salads that I ate all the time growing up. The ingredients are nutritious and the salad is so easy to prepare for a crowd. My mom or grandmother would chop the vegetables while soaking the wheat, mix everything together without measuring, adjust the dressing to taste, and serve. Sometimes it would be paired with a more classic Middle Eastern main dish like stuffed grape leaves, and other times, we’d eat it with takeout pizza.  (more…)

Bright Mediterranean inspired flavors make this feta farro salad a perfect main dish for a light meal, or a refreshing side for a picnic or barbecue. It's a great way to try ancient grains in your diet! * Recipe on

I discovered something pretty cool the other day when I was walking around the grocery store… quick cooking farro. Normally, I’m wary of quick-cooking anything, but farro, like barley, is a wheat grain that takes a long time to cook, so the promise of farro ready to use in 10 minutes (more like 15 with getting the water to boil and all) was pretty exciting to me. I knew I was going to make it into a salad to keep with the “simple and quick” theme. I picked up a little creamy feta, and then waited something ridiculous like two weeks before putting this together. And then I made it twice in three days.  (more…)

Fall Harvest Salad


This salad is perfect for fall! Blue cheese crumbles, quick candied pecans, fresh apples, dark leafy greens, and an easy red wine vinaigrette. It's healthy fall comfort food!

Something about the change in seasons makes me crave salad. I don’t know if it’s because I fear winter weight gain and so this is my subconscious attempt to balance preemptively, or because lettuce, arugula, and many of the leafy greens I like to include in my salads are actually in season when it gets cooler. Either way, my salad cravings are strong in Fall. (more…)
