  • Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

    November 8, 2022thetipsyhousewife

    Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad is a great party salad and also an easy, delicious lunch option. I have been making this Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad for years. Basically since the invention of the bag of already shaved Brussels sprouts from Trader Joes and Aldi. If you have to slice the Brussels Sprouts yourself that’s not hard to do. This salad has all the right notes for me. Savory, sweet, crunch, tender. I love that it is chock full of vegetables, a little fruit and meaty little pecans. I sometimes add chopped rotisserie chicken meat to this…

    A Salad To Serve With Frozen Pizza Happy Monday! I woke up thinking about this salad this morning and how it is the perfect Summer meal idea. Now I know it isn’t “officially” Summer yet, but to me, anything after Memorial Day is Summer. I know that we try to avoid turning on our ovens in the Summer, but sometimes after a day of swimming, gardening, day camp or other fun outdoor activities, a frozen pizza just hits the spot. Typically, Friday’s in our house are Frozen Pizza Friday’s. This Pizza Salad is the perfect side for Frozen Pizza Friday.…

    August 28, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    One of my favorite things to do is to make a big salad and eat it during the week for lunch and send some with Mister Tipsy for his lunches at work. Mister Tipsy’s Dad also enjoys having a salad on hand therefore I experiment with making different kinds of salad dressings and trying different combinations of vegetables. I started making this Broccoli Cheddar Salad a few years ago and it is always a fan favorite. This particular variation of Broccoli Cheddar Salad has toasted pumpkin seeds and a mustard based dressing but you can add any kind of crunch…

    Seven Layer Salad

    July 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have been in a salad state of mind for the last few weeks. I haven’t been home much to have access to my little grill and I just can’t bring myself to heat up the house with a hot stove or oven. This is why I have been making mostly no cook salads for dinner like this Seven Layer Salad I made today for dinner. This Seven Layer Salad is a salad I used to have to make when I worked in the deli of a local grocery store. This was one of the most popular recipes we sold…

    Asian Inspired Pasta Salad

    July 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I had an idea for this Asian Inspired Pasta Salad for a few weeks now and I spent some time sorting out the recipe in my head before actually creating it.  I knew I wanted this pasta salad to be slightly sweet and have super crunchy vegetables, but I wasn’t sure about the rest. I didn’t decide all the ingredients for this recipe until I was actually in the store. I spotted the creamy poppy seed dressing that I used in this and built the rest of the pasta salad around it. I also had the idea to add mini…
