Most of the people who know me know how much I love food, but only those closest to me know just how much I love sandwiches. I probably eat too many of them (sometimes two a day), but part of that comes from the ability to create anything I want and put it between two slices of bread. Sandwiches don’t have to be lame and can sometimes require just as much preparation as any other meal.
Labor Day has come and gone, which means grilling season for many is quickly nearing its end. Yes, we can pause to mourn, but we can also just take our steak-eating indoors. This sweet, salty, and savory steak salad can be made year round as long as you have a saute pan or skillet and a few ingredients. It’s delicious, filling, and about as lean as anything containing steak can be.
It is Buzz Week here on BTR, and the Magic Bullet has been touted for quite some time now as a kitchen must-have. Yes, it’s smaller than a blender, but I’m finding that it is equally handy. This is especially true because the cup used to mix ingredients is the same cup users can drink from.
This dish has all of the notes and flair of summer in Italy without having to spend too many moments outdoors in the sweltering weather. Fresh lemon, spinach, and rosemary meet in this pasta and grilled chicken dish alongside garlic, wine, and sauteed onion.
Throwing a last minute dinner party? Just looking for a midday snack? Either way, this seafood potato salad will suffice. It’s simple to throw together, but stands out in a sea of over-mayonnaised potato salads. In fact, this one contains no mayo at all.
More from the summer salad series brings a Mexican-inspired dish. At the forefront of this salad is spicy grilled shrimp, which pairs with refreshing spinach, cucumber, avocado, and red peppers. Skip Chipotle tonight and make this instead.
One of the simplest warm weather dinners to prepare is a batch of homemade burgers. These healthy chicken burgers are packed with spinach and mushrooms, so you won’t have to feel guilty serving these to your family.
Dish + Drink continues the salad series with this Spanish-inspired sweet and smoky spinach number. With a homemade dressing and an array of olives, this salad stands out from the pack.
Unfortunately, April showers are all too real, which means it isn’t always easy to make meals outside. This salad is perfect for springtime because it doesn’t require a grill, but you’ll still feel good about yourself eating salad for dinner.
In the spirit of continuing to share recipes that are even more health-focused than usual, Dish + Drink ventures into chicken paillard. This dish is heavy on leafy greens and includes a solid amount of lean protein, thanks to both spinach and chicken.
