By Katrina Yoneda - October 04, 2018

This salad mother fuckin’ SCREEEAMS fall. Just look at it. Now look at it again. How much more fall can a salad get?!


If you like sweet & salty at the same time, this is your recipe! However, if you’re one of those people who hate fruit with savory, or who don’t like hot & cold food mixing… just click out now. Really, it’s ok! I’ve only taken partial offense…  /just find you really, really weird hahaha ;)


Summer Chickpea Salad | GF + Vegan

By Katrina Yoneda - August 03, 2018

This is the ultimate summer dish!! I like to make this recipe & have it in the fridge for lunches, or for just a quick snack! The longer it marinates in its own juices, the BETTER!


It’s cold, crisp & refreshing.


It tastes light, lemony, a bit tart, juicy, & deliciously crunchy! This recipe takes no time at all to make & is highly rewarding in the flavor department. Not to mention all of the amazing health benefits of chickpeas! You can look them up yourself, I said I wasn’t going to mention them ;)


Kale, White Bean + Fennel Salad w/ Lemon Garlic Dressing | GF + V Katrina Yoneda Tue, 05/15/2018 - 16:32

After being pretty quiet on the blogging front due to moving states, I’M BACK IN ACTION!! As we aren’t settled in completely yet, I was trying to think of something fast & easy I could whip up for dinner! Aaaaaand that is how I came up with this salad; perfect for a weeknight meal. I paired it with a flaky baked halibut & it was phenomenally complementary!


Blackout Salad | GF Katrina Yoneda Fri, 03/23/2018 - 21:45

This salad got its name when Escondido County encountered a city-wide blackout one year. I had my best friend since Kindergarten over & she requested this salad. This was before we knew we’d be eating a romantic candlelight dinner together ;)

Peruvian Stuffed Avocado Shrimp Salad Katrina Yoneda Tue, 03/06/2018 - 17:02

My gal pal & I went to a new Peruvian restaurant in town & I’ve been inspired to cook outside of the box ever since ;) This recipe happened to pop up on my Pinterest (FATE)! This stuffed avocado shrimp salad is a popular Peruvian dish known as Palta Rellena! This recipe is most definitely a Pinterest nail <3


Creamy avocado stuffed with a juicy shrimp salad & topped with a zesty cilantro lime sauce. It’s super fresh, bright, tangy, creamy & downright refreshing!


Veggie Fajita Salad + Shrimp Skewers

By Katrina Yoneda - September 04, 2017

Let me tell you why I decided to make this salad tonight: it’s fast, easy & PACKED with flavor! Don’t let my long instructions fool you… I ramble.

I get a call from my mom today who decided that she unexpectedly wants to have a sleepover with my son. Do you know what this means to my husband & I?!?! We wanted to make a QUICK ass dinner so that we could get our comfys on & binge watch all the violent, crude ass shows we want!!!!!! This is something my husband & I rarely get to do so we are STOKED.
