Quinoa Kale Salad AHP014

A super simple yet incredibly zesty kale salad that combines the bright flavors of apples and cranberries with quinoa and sunflower seeds to satisfy your taste buds and hunger alike!

Pork Chops with Apple and Fennel Panzanella AHP557 (minus the pork chops) 

Traditionally a Tuscan bread salad with tomatoes and an oil and vinegar dressing, we put a fun fall twist on it by mixing our ciabatta croutons with fennel, apple and a honey-mustard dressing before topping our warm and crispy bread salad with juicy bone-in pork chops!

Steak with Mango Pepita Kale Salad AHP408 (minus the steak)

Time to revive an old favorite of ours! We massage kale with lemon, mango and honey and top with pan-seared sirloin steak and pumpkin seeds for a light yet filling salad!

Mexican Quinoa and Black Bean Salad AHP339

This is a quinoa salad you’ll want to make over and over again. We take tender black beans, fresh cilantro, crunchy bell pepper and fluffy quinoa and toss everything in a fajita-style citrus vinaigrette for a light yet hearty meal perfect for weekday lunches or dinner in a hurry!

Farro with Roasted Beets and Goat Cheese AHP038

Certain veggies don’t get the credit they deserve and nowhere is that more true than with the humble beet. For this hearty vegetarian dish, we combine crispy baked beets with farro, lemon, walnuts, mint, goat cheese and crucially, the beet greens to create the ultimate winter salad. If you can show me someone who doesn’t love beets after eating this salad, I’ll show you a liar!

Butternut Squash and Kale Salad with Goat Cheese AHP607

At AHP, our favorite part about cooking is building flavor profiles and combinations and one of the best places to experiment is with quinoa salads. Want sweet and creamy? Pair roasted squash with goat cheese. Want earthy and zesty? Massage kale with citrus. Want little pockets of tart and nutty? Add toasted almonds and cranberries. Want the ultimate winter salad? Combine all of the above!

Greek-Style White Bean and Barley Salad AHP412

A fresh, light springtime salad that’s loaded with a variety of warm weather flavors and textures like chewy barley, creamy white beans, bright lemon and crisp cucumber. Νόστιμο!

Quinoa Kale Salad with Grapefruit and Avocado AHP593

Quinoa kale salads are a staple at AHP since they’re just so versatile. And for this week’s entry for the perfect dinner or prepped-ahead lunch, we combine massaged kale and quinoa with grapefruit, avocado, walnuts and a lemony honey-mustard dressing for a salad that will make anyone just as much of a fan as we are!

Lentil Salad with Potatoes and Asparagus AHP081

Warm wholegrain mustard-roasted potatoes and asparagus come together with green lentils for a hearty salad that’s equally good for dinner or lunch!

Balsamic Pork with Apple and Lentil Salad AHP402 (minus pork)

Read all about it! Apples, lentils and balsamic pork chops have settled their differences and combined to form the mother of all spring salads! They may all have very different flavors but after mediation with lemon and parsley, they’ve realized that life will be better if they all work together!

Marinated Lentil Salad with Chickpeas AHP267

Time for a hearty vegetarian main loaded with protein, fiber and tons of flavor! The sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, lemon and green onion make this salad perfect for lunch or dinner all year round!
