Dinner Planner: Week of August 28th 2017 | Pamela Salzman

I had such an incredible week with two stops in Dallas and Houston (got out just before the storm hit!)  I love meeting new people, especially ones with whom I have interacted on social media or here on the blog.   Then I was lucky enough to have two beautiful book parties hosted for me back in LA and I have a book signing Sunday 8/27 at the Barnes & Noble in Calabasas from 2:00 to 3:30!  If you have bought my book and you’re enjoying it, may I ask a huge favor?  Would you please write a review on amazon?  The more reviews I have, the more the amazon algorithm recommends my book to potential customers.  Thank you!

Also, check out Friday’s post about the online cooking course on Batch Cooking that I developed for Clean Eating Magazine.  Sign-ups are now and the 7-week course begins on September 11!

Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Pasta alla checca with Gluten-Free pasta and raw kale salad with red peppers, red cabbage, quinoa (or choose a different protein like feta or walnuts)and hemp seeds

Tuesday: South American roast chicken with green sauce from my cookbook and solterito

Wednesday: Chopped grilled vegetable salad with slow roasted salmon

Thursday: Chicken souvlaki served with pita and tzatziki sauce and watermelon and tomato salad with feta and mint

Friday: Green shakshuka with crusty bread and green salad

Saturday lunch: Chopped antipasto salad

Sunday: Late summer minestrone with pesto


Here’s what you can do ahead if you need:


wash your herbs and greens for the week and store in the fridge

cook the quinoa for the kale salad and refrigerate

shuck corn

trim asparagus and place in a jar with a small amount of water and refrigerate

make pesto and refrigerate for sunday

Make stock for soup and freeze
