Hearty Fall Thanksgiving Salad

Lisa Eberly

This salad is so delicious, beautiful, and filling -- another great recipe for your Thanksgiving! 

It's super simple to make and tastes delicious with almost any dressing (which is great if you're not into making the one from the recipe!) 

Hearty Fall Thanksgiving Salad
(serves 4)

Ingredients:
Salad:
10-12 green beans, cut in half
2 cups cherry tomatoes
3 wild carrots, cut diagonally
3 large broccoli florets
1 head of romaine lettuce
1 scallion, minced
Your favorite fresh herbs, finely chopped (I like to use sage, basil, and/or thyme!)
Dressing: 
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup 

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roast the cherry tomatoes for 8-10 minutes in a small roasting pan.
2. In a pot of boiling water, steam the broccoli, green beans, and carrots (10 minutes, or until tender).
3. In a small bowl, whisk 3 tablespoons olive oil with vinegar, mustard, and honey or syrup.
4. Arrange lettuce leaves and scallions on 4 plates. 
5. Top salad with vegetables and tomatoes; drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with salt and pepper if needed.

The Most Amazing Healthy Homemade Caesar Salad

Lisa Eberly

healthy-caesar-salad

So this recipe is my go-to when it comes to salad. It's super easy to make a little fancier, simpler, more filling, less filling, etc. I like having variability in recipes so that you're not stuck to the exact measurements and way of doing it. This recipe gives you opportunity to explore ways you like this salad! 

Even salad's toughest critics like Caesar salad. But, the trouble with Caesar salad is that it's usually packed with fat and calories. Good news -- NOT MINE! :) Everything made from scratch and not time consuming or difficult -- despite people thinking you've been slaving away in the kitchen for hours! 

Healthy Homemade Caesar Salad
(serves 3-4)

Ingredients:
Our homemade salad dressing ingredients
Our homemade spicy croutons ingredients
1-2 heaping handfuls of clean, chopped kale
1 head of romaine lettuce
1-2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 handful of grape tomatoes, sliced
3-4 lemon slices (optional, for garnish)

Directions (to make this salad fast is all about technique and timing, so these directions include making the dressing and croutons to show how to optimize time!):
1. Boil water in a small pot. While waiting to boil, slice tomatoes in halves and chop lettuce. 
2. Once water boiling, drop egg in there to coddle for dressing. Once egg dropped, remove pot from heat and let sit for 6 minutes. 
3. While waiting, slice bread for croutons, toss in EVOO, S/P, and red pepper flakes (optional minced garlic!) -- place in oven or toaster over for recommended time. 
4. Remove egg from water and let cool. While cooling, combine all other ingredients for dressing in small bowl. Add egg once cooled. 
5. Toss letttuce, tomatoes, and cheese into a big bowl. Add dressing and croutons and toss! 

Ways to make this recipe more filling or creative: 
1. Add a protein, like grilled chicken, salmon, shrimp, or tofu. 
2. Make it southwestern style (my favorite!): add a pinch of cumin to the dressing; add black beans, roasted corn, and avocado to the lettuce; and use limes instead of lemons in dressing and garnish!
3. Add pine nuts or another favorite nut!  
4. Add herbs, like basil for a more rich, Italian flavor. 

If I'm making this salad as a main dish, I make it southwestern style and add grilled chicken. If it's a side, I do it the basic way (and sometimes add Trader Joe's frozen roasted corn!). You can really get creative and make it your own! 

If you do make this salad and 'dress' it up in your own fun way, send a picture of it to theteam@nourishbylisa.com or tweet/FB/insta us a photo for a FREE Nourish Recipe Ebook! :)  

Homemade Spicy Croutons

Lisa Eberly

These croutons will get even salad's toughest critics to give it a shot. 

Everyone always flips out about my homemade croutons -- they are the highlight of home-cooked dinner parties. 

I'm a big fan of croutons in salad. They provide balance. Sometimes, a salad with just veggies and lettuce needs a little gluten-y crunch! And, in moderation, there's nothing wrong with enjoying fresh bread. 

Best part about them is that they are almost too easy to make for how delicious they are! 

Homemade Spicy Croutons

Ingredients:
Fresh loaf of your favorite bread. French, sourdough, TJ's rosemary, you name it. 
Salt & pepper
Red pepper flakes
Olive oil
Minced garlic (optional) 

Directions:
1. Slice loaf of bread into medium-sized squares and toss squares into a big bowl. 
2. Coat squares with olive oil -- enough to cover them but not drown them. Toss. 
3. Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and maybe garlic, and toss. I don't put amounts here because everyone is different and this recipe is very variable. Some people like a lot of spice, others don't. My rule of thumb: always make them a little too salty and spicy, as they are going to tone down a lot when you add in the rest of your salad ingredients. 
4. Lay on a toaster sheet (if making them in a toaster oven) or cookie sheet (if making them in the oven). Preheat oven to 450F (if using oven). Either toast for around 3-4 minutes or bake in oven for around 8-10 minutes. Check to see when golden brown on edges.
