Very Good 4.6/5
(14 ratings)

A very delicious variation on chicken salad. Using Dijon and honey in the dressing make the difference. It's great to make a whole batch and just eat on it all week. Super crunchy, super good, you'll want to serve this at all your brunches and lunches.

Green Beans with Miso and Almonds
Very Good 4.3/5
(10 ratings)

Dress up your green beans. Miso is a perfect replacement for butter in most sauteed dishes and offers a nice earthy, salty note to the beans.

Baked Chicken Egg Rolls: Un-Chained Recipe Contest
Very Good 4.4/5
(39 ratings)

One of my biggest fast-food temptations are greasy fried egg rolls from places like Panda Express. I made over this healthy version using lean chicken and fresh vegetables. Baking the egg rolls instead of frying them saves even more calories and these don't disappoint! They're flavor packed and I can make them often without feeling guilty. I serve them at parties, or for dinner with a side of brown rice. (Un-Chained Recipe Contest Entry- Fast Food Category)

Very Good 4.1/5
(15 ratings)

I don't know a kid who doesn't love the combo of cheese and barbecue sauce. This dish is a swap on mac-n-cheese and BBQ chicken that's quick and grown-up approved.

Very Good 4.2/5

Watermelon is a favorite summer dessert, but it makes a lovely salad, too. Here, creamy citrus dressing pairs with the sweet melon and crunchy celery.

Chimichurri
Very Good 4.4/5
(20 ratings)

This sauce hails from Argentina, a country that's known for tasty grilled meats. Pair this with grilled beef, pork, chicken and even fish. It's also a great dipping sauce for grilled vegetables and whole-wheat bread.

Rustic Italian Tortellini Soup
Very Good 4.8/5
(255 ratings)

This meal comes together pretty fast. It's a very hearty meal, that goes great with a salad.
It's a versatile recipe in that you can add additional vegetables or even a can of drained and rinsed cannelini beans, for more protein.
