  1. Healthy Recipe, Mixed Lettuce Salad with Apples, Toasted Pecans, and Shaved Parmesan

    The last thing a salad of super-fresh greens and quality add-ins needs is a gloppy bottled dressing to drown those lively flavors and natural goodness. Nor do you need to go to the trouble to mix a vinaigrette from scratch. The trick is to dress it directly in the bowl, tasting as you go, adjusting […]

  2. Healthy Recipe, Cauliflower Tacos

        Long the wallflower of the produce bin, cauliflower has found new popularity in recent years as a healthful stand-ins for all sorts of off-limits foods, from steak to pizza.

  3. Healthy Recipe, Light and Creamy Avocado-Basil Dip

    Cheesy, mayonnaise-laden dips can weigh you down in a hurry. This lighter alternative, inspired by one of Melissa Clark’s New York Times recipes, is just as satisfying.

  6. Healthy Recipe, Cranberry Shrub Cocktails

    Fresh cranberries are so full of wonderful tart flavor and health-boosting nutrients it seems a shame to serve them only in relish form to go with a holiday turkey.

    This chowder is lighter and healthier than most traditional creamy chowders yet is every bit as comforting and satisfying.

  8. Healthy Recipe, Skillet Potatoes and Broken Eggs

    Huevos rotos, or “broken eggs,” is a popular bar food served in taverns across Spain at all hours. Typically, it consists of fried potatoes, onions, chorizo sausage or ham, and eggs that are broken and mixed with the other ingredients before serving. Here’s a healthier version of this rustic one-skillet meal, with spinach and bell […]

  9. Healthy Recipe, Quinoa Salad

    Quinoa is an ancient plant with tiny seeds that has become wildly popular in recent years as a gluten-free stand-in for cereal grains.
