Beet & Pomegranate Salad — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Beet & Pomegranate Salad — The Skinny Fork



I chose to make this Beet & Pomegranate Salad with Fall and Winter fruits and veggies; pumpkin seeds and pomegranate to name a couple. One of the best parts about this salad though, is that like most other salads, its one that can be made ahead of time. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it’s full of flavor and festive in color.

It’s true what they say, you eat with your eyes first.

The greenest of greens and pops of red color would make this salad a great part of a Holiday meal too! The simple vinaigrette dressing is based on one that I use pretty much all of the time with my salads anymore and it’s pretty easy to see why.

We LOVE jello! I’m guessing you feel the same too! Be sure to check out our amazing collection of Jello recipes here!

Cranberry Jello Salad is a staple to our holiday spread! I love the festive flavors. This version is perfect because it’s not too sweet and accompanies ham and turkey beautifully. It’s a very versatile recipe too- if you can’t find cranberry jello, feel free to use raspberry or cherry instead. You can also use a different flavor of pudding. I like to use white chocolate because of both the delicious flavor and the white color looks so pretty contrasted with the red jello. If you can’t find white chocolate pudding mix, you can use french vanilla or even regular vanilla instead.

My version of Cranberry Jello Salad doesn’t use cream cheese, which is intentional! I like the flavor, but I like a lighter taste to my jello salads, so I opt for whipped topping combined with crushed pineapple and pudding mix instead.

I topped my Cranberry Jello Salad with lovely sparkling sugared cranberries, a recipe I found on my friend Gina’s site. Check them out! They’re easy to make and I think they add a very festive element to the salad. She soaks her cranberries for 3 days, but I think you can make a quick version and just soak them overnight. Bonus too- they taste amazing! They’ve got a sweet crunchy exterior and pop with a fresh, bright flavor when you bite down. Yum.

Taco Salad Splits — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Taco Salad Splits — The Skinny Fork



It’s cold outside! It’s so cold and frosty that school was delayed, and while it’s cold and not much else to do, my creative juices always kick into high gear. Today I decided to make some cute Taco Salad Splits with the bonus time that I had gifted to me by the weather.

So what’s a Taco Salad Split? Well, it’s a taco take on a banana split. Don’t worry, I’m not making tacos with bananas. But I am making these taco salads LOOK like banana splits.

This is probably the cutest way possible to make and eat your taco salad by the way.
