Table-side Caesar Salad with Chili Oil Croutons

This variation of Caesar salad comes together right in the bowl. Rather than dumping a creamy and heavy (albeit delicious) dressing on the romaine, in this recipe the garlic is mashed together with the anchovies and olive oil, then tossed with the romaine, lemon juice, egg yolk and Parmesan cheese.

Little Gem Salad with Green Goddess Dressing and Buttered Breadcrumbs

I had a version of this salad at the trendy and hard to find LA hotspot, No Name. As the name implies, it is an unmarked restaurant/ bar that is located on Fairfax in Hollywood.

Arugula and Endive Salad with Candied Pine Nuts

The endive provides an extra crunch and the candied pine nuts add a subtle sweetness to offset the bitterness of the arugula.

Butternut Squash, Quinoa & Kale Salad with Warm Goat Cheese and Apple Cider Vinaigrette

When preparing for the barrage of winter dinner parties that lie ahead I often turn to a kale salad because the tough leaves can be dressed ahead of time and sit for a few hours without wilting.

Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad with Grilled Bread

While classic caprese salads use beefsteak tomatoes, I like to step it up a notch and use juicy, heirloom tomatoes. With their superior flavor, heirloom tomatoes come from seeds passed down and are typically at least 50 years old.
