Salt and Vinegar Potato Salad

22 Aug

If you have been on The Hungry Wife searching recipes, you may have noticed that I have several Potato Salads.  I love them.  Potato Salad is a great dish that can be easily made and served year round.  Salt and Vinegar Potato Salad is a great variation on the original, and perfect for those with vegetarian diet restrictions, or if you are just looking to replace the mayo for healthier dish.

Summer Rice Salad

21 Mar

I’m always looking for new salads to make, getting away from the tradition potato, pasta, egg, ect.  During the warm spring and summer months, salads can be so much more then a side dish.  I like to make several different salads and have them as the main meal.  Summer Rice Salad is wonderful!  I love that Summer Rice Salad is a refreshing, cooling, and flavorful dish that is unlike all those other summer salads.  Using rice as the main ingredient in salads is a nice departure from the tradition, and is lighter to eat on hot summer days then a heavy potato or pasta.

Broccoli Salad

25 Feb

Broccoli Salad is the perfect side dish to welcome the spring.  Even though many people are still dealing with the snow, and will be for a little while longer, here in South Carolina the temps are warming.  You can smell spring in the air as trees start budding and flowers start to push through the soil.  To celebrate the coming of spring, I decided to make this delicious and super easy broccoli salad.

Mom’s Potato Salad

7 Jan

Mom’s Potato Salad is the third Potato Salad recipe The Hungry Wife is featuring.  I don’t think it is possible to have too many salad recipes, especially when they are so delicious and make excellent side dishes.  This particular recipe is one from my mother, and even though it is basically a classic potato salad, it has a nice twist.  The addition of Italian salad dressing provides a whole new dynamic into the flavor mix.

Greek Salad Baguette

21 Sep

Every now and then I like to go meatless for dinner.  It is a great way to pack in all those veggies and vitamins, and get a super healthy and filling meal.  One of the best things about The Greek Salad Baguette is that you can make it as a sandwich like the recipe suggests, or you can serve it as a side salad.  It is so good both ways.  I particularly like to make Greek Salad Baguette with a sourdough loaf and serve with a side of couscous.

Spicy Potato Salad

26 Jun

Spicy Potato Salad is more than you could ever ask for.  It is extremely extremely low in fat and calories, no cholesterol, and super flavorful.  In the United States, we’re accustomed to potato salad dressed with mayonnaise or oil and vinegar.  But this potato salad is both very low-fat and vegan.

Grilled Corn Salad

24 Jun

This is a wonderful Grilled Corn Salad that appears in our house every summer when corn is super sweet and in season.  Grilled Corn Salad really showcases what summer corn is all about.  Sure, you could add some tomatoes, avocados, and other vegetables that are in season, but I like to keep this simple.  This dish will complement any summer outing and will last the test of time.  You can transform this Salad into many different things, a salsa on your burrito, or made more complex with some additional ingredients (I like avocado if you have one).
