Kale Salad with Pecorino & Walnuts

I’m just getting to know kale. This finely shredded salad has a lot of steps (toast the walnuts, plump the raisins, toast the breadcrumbs, grate the pecorino), but it’s elegant and special, and is a lovely way to enjoy your leafy greens.

Thanksgiving Slaw

Our family’s classic Thanksgiving and Christmas menu is rich. There are tons of carbs, and I’m afraid to tell you how much butter it takes to get the meal on the table. This tangy cabbage slaw is not only quick to put together and sturdy enough to sit for up to 2 hours without wilting, it’s acidity and hint of mustard help cut through the other dishes on the plate.

Easy Skillet Kale with Lemon & Garlic

I’m late to the kale party, but have been looking for healthy vegetable recipes to serve as side dishes. This is a super easy (you tear the leaves with your hands, rather than chop them, and you don’t even have to dry the leaves after you rinse them) and quick side for a weeknight dinner.

Grilled Corn Salad

Grilled corn with juicy tomatoes, salty feta cheese, basil, and lemon is the perfect side for a backyard barbecue or pool party. We usually bring some spare grilled whole corn to satisfy kids who’d rather eat straight off the cob.

Garlic Broccolini

This broccolini, sautéed until the edges are crispy, seasoned with salt and garlic, and then steamed until just tender, is so, so good. It’s done on the stovetop in less than 20 minutes, making it an easy weeknight veggie.

Great caramelized onions require slow cooking over medium heat. It takes an hour or more, but the time spent is worth it if you’re looking for a great topping for burgers or pizza.
