Today I am joining my pals Mary Ann and Annie and some of our blogging friends. We are sharing some of our favorite dinner salads. I admit I have not been cooking much since we have been in moving mode. Two weeks ago I featured Red’s Spicy Poke Salad from Half Baked Harvest on my Sunday favorites. Last weekend I made it and took it to our son and daughter-in-law’s for dinner. They have been feeding us often. Today I am sharing a Delicious Healthy Dinner Salad You Will Love. I know we sure did.
Of course, my daughter-in-law had the table set beautifully when we arrived.
Colin and Lauren have beautiful dinnerware and flatware (we all (including my daughter) share the same flatware that we love). The cool lead bowl was found in Paso Robles. Their plates are from Arte Italia, and the chargers, napkins, and glasses are from Pottery Barn. All available items are linked below the picture.
SHOP LAUREN’S TABLE SETTING
When Steve and I were in Hawaii we ate fish every meal (even breakfast a couple of times), many which included poke. We have a great seafood market and restaurant that we love in Templeton and we plan on eating a lot more fish. We love Poke. You can find the recipe for Red’s Favorite Spicy Tuna Bowls here on Half Baked Harvest. According to their directions, the recipe takes about 30 minutes. It is simple but it took me more like 45 minutes to an hour start to finish.
You could definitely make the spicy mayo dressing the day before. I added edamame and radishes to the cucumber mixture. I would not be afraid to make the edamame/cucumber salad a few hours before, and the radishes could be cut and sliced ahead of time as well.
To assemble the salad I used the sushi rice as a base and then added baby kale (not called for in the recipe). I then layered the cucumber edamame mixture. I topped that with the pickled cucumbers and radishes and then drizzled the spicy mayo mixture over it right before serving. This salad is going to be on regular rotation at our house. Everyone loved it. If you love salads as much as I do, you can find all of my salad recipes here.
My David Austin roses are at their peak right now, so I picked a group and took them to Colin and Lauren’s.

I hope you enjoyed A Delicious Healthy Dinner Salad You Will Love. My time is very limited right now so I apologize for the short post. Fortunately, I am joining others who I know will make up for me and knock it out of the park. Click on the links below for some more yummy salads to add to your repertoire.
