Asian Coleslaw_ss

My mom makes a version of this recipe, so I used hers to create this coleslaw. It’s crunchy, sweet & sour, and loaded with fresh veggies! Great as a meal all on its own, or pair it with grilled chicken or shrimp for a fantastic dinner! Ingredients: 4 cups fresh cabbage, finely chopped 3/4 cup almond slices, toasted...

Fresh Baked Croutons

Why use packaged, tasteless, dry, store-bought croutons, when you can whip these up in only a few minutes at home?? These are so delicious that I have to slap my husband’s hand away or he’ll eat them all before dinner is ready! Serve these KP original croutons atop Grilled Chicken Ceaser Salad, KP Cobb...

Ask and you shall receive–My Aunt Phyllis posted a recipe request on “Ask KP” for a Hudson’s Maurice Salad. So here it is! Many of you Detroiters may know the salad from years ago, as served at the Hudson’s department store restaurant. (I grew up eating them myself.) The store no longer exists, so...

BTL Lettuce Wraps

I’m on a salad kick lately–who’s with me?? To keep things interesting, tonight I made lettuce wraps instead of a big ‘ol bowl of salad. The kids loved it, and so did I! This recipe is soooo good. With the addition of fresh corn, cilantro, and lime, it’s a step up from boring BLTs....

Cranberry Broccoli Salad

I may be clinically addicted to this salad. I’m not joking. I think I need professional help to stop eating this. Not sure if it’s the sweet, or the crunch, or the dressing, or the combo of it all, but once I start with a bowl of this I cannot stop. Luckily it’s healthy,...

Cucumber Salad

No other recipe can conjure up more memories for me than this simple German cucumber salad, or Gurkensalat, as I grew up calling it. It is literally the smell and taste of my childhood. My Grandma Hirvo made this almost every time we saw her, which was weekly. We ate it with everything–chicken, pizza,...

Homemade Vinaigrette

I’ve always been a big fan of the Good Seasons “make your own vinaigrette” packets. But in an effort to cut down on salt and sugar (and unpronounceable ingredients) I went looking for a homemade vinaigrette recipe that didn’t call for a packet. And I do believe I’ve found a winner! This recipe comes...

Baby Greens with Feta, Pine Nuts, and Cranberries

My friend Shona makes this salad, that is, in a word, addictive! I’m not lying when I say that I eat this about 4 days a week for lunch. It’s super quick to make, packed with healthy stuff, and tastes sooooo good! I add diced cooked chicken breast and chopped green onions to mine to...

Spaghetti Salad Supreme

This is no ordinary pasta salad. Not at all. To be clear, this pasta salad is SUPREME! If you don’t believe me, well then march off to your kitchen and make it. You’ll be glad you did. It’s like cold pizza in a bowl…with pasta…and Italian dressing…or something like that. I made this recipe...
