Zesty Greens Salad with Feta


Can I get an amen that you can never have too many salad recipes?? I love salads and make them every day with dinner or even just for myself for lunch.

My friend Rosa gave me this recipe a long time ago, she uses spinach instead and you can as well, I personally like it with a blend of greens :) Also I make this salad with balsamic vinegar sometimes instead of regular and its just as delicious! I just love the combination of everything in this salad and the feta cheese with a little vinegar just tops it off, MMMmmm

Enjoy this salad and please comment below with your favorite salad and how you make it! :)

Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad Recipe


If you are Russian or Ukrainian there is no doubt in my mind that you haven’t tried this salad! Now to all my other friends you need to make this salad asap, you will love it :)  I love to serve this salad with plov on the side (you can find my recipe in dinner section) or practically any other dish.

You can mix this salad with mayo like I did, or also you can do oil instead, it is just as good :)

Russian Layered Harvest Salad Recipe


I know i have been bad with posting new recipes this last month.. my uncle passed away so its been really tough for our family… Thank you for your patience.

If you guys have never tried this salad I am super excited for you to do so! Its definitely a unique salad that is delicious and different than your typical salads. This salad is very similar to  “shuba” but it doesn’t have the fish in it, its only vegetables. (not a fan of fish in my salads ;) Also my mom made it this way as long as i can remember :)

If your not Russian this salad probably looks very interesting to you but i promise you guys its fantastic, its absolutely delicious. Make sure you top it off with pomegranate it gives this salad a nice crunch and flavor to it.. Its a must for me :)

This salad works very well for potluck parties or just dinner at home and even with just a slice of bread! mmmmmmmmm :) Read more…

Ever Since my trip to San Fransisco I fell in love with feta cheese, my cousin put it on all her salads and i absolutely loved it. So of course as soon as i came home and went grocery shopping i bought feta cheese!!!

This one salad here i have been making for the past few weeks and we love it and the vinegar i the dressing gives it a nice lil kick with the feta ;)

BTW whenever you make any salad you don’t have to do the exact measurements just add as you go (and taste) but i measured it out for you guys  :) Read more…

Creamy Garlic Beet Salad/Spread

Creamy Garlic Beet Salad/Spread

In yesterdays post i mentioned it was a gloomy day, and suddenly a couple hours later all the clouds went away and the sunshine came out. So I was excited to photograph a couple recipes for you guys since natural lighting is best for photos :) And I’m no professional photographer I have no gear just a camera and  girl on a mission to capture nice photos of my recipes for you guys.

So today I’m sharing another Russian recipe! It can be used as salad or a spread. When making this salad you can put less or more garlic/mayo. Normally I put a couple garlic’s in and taste it to see if its enough. In this recipe you really wanna taste the garlic. It gives it that nice kick!
