Burrata Summer Salad

Wondering what to do with all of those fresh garden tomatoes? Here’s a simple burrata salad to make use of an abundance of summer tomatoes. I’ve been loving my big, dark-hued Black Krim tomatoes. These juicy tomatoes have a brown-ish red color and slice up beautifully. For visual interest (and because I have an insane…

Steak Quesadillas

I make quesadillas every single lunch and yet no recipes appear on The Rose Table. The reason? I never measure! But in an effort to bring you more of my everyday foods, I’m writing this up sans measurements. I especially love making quesadillas for lunch when I have a little leftover chicken or steak. On…

Greek Tabbouleh Salad

Words cannot even describe how much I love this recipe. Let’s put it this way: for about eight years, I ate this for lunch most weeks. I’ve fallen out of the habit in recent years but in a quest to bring you some of my all-time favorite recipes, I’ve finally written up my recipe for…

Tabbouleh

I just adore tabbouleh. It’s healthy, flavorful, easy to make, and goes with so many different things. What’s not to love? If you grow mint and/or parsley, this is a wonderful way to use those fresh garden herbs! This bulgur wheat salad is the perfect dish to make in the summertime when you have an…

Loaded Focaccia

Today in the kitchen we’re taking a trip to Italy! My loaded focaccia is cheesy, flavorful, and easy to make. With mozzarella, homemade pesto, olives, and tomatoes, this focaccia is a dream Italian lunch. I’ve spent a lot of time this past year virtually traveling through YouTube and blogs. I was reading old Europe posts…

Pesto Picnic Sandwich

I can’t remember the last time I had a better sandwich. I could write a love song about this sandwich. I wanted an easy baguette sandwich for a French Inspired Picnic with my friend Thi. This only has a couple of ingredients but WOW does it taste magical when you put them together! I decided…

Apple Butter & Pumpkin Butter Sandwiches

For my Harvest Festival lunch, I made two kind of delicious fall sandwiches: apple butter and havarti and pumpkin butter and cheddar. They were so good! For added cuteness, I cut them out into pumpkin shapes using a cookie cutter and served on a platter with grapes, nuts, and some rosemary from my garden. There’s…

Strawberry Salmon Salad

I’ve been making this same salad since my college days! I absolutely love the combination of salmon and strawberries. If you’ve never tried it, please do! The two go perfectly together, especially with the crunch of toasted sliced almonds and the saltiness of Feta cheese. It’s a perfect summer salad that’s as delicious as it…
