Dinner Planner - Week of March 5th, 2018 | Pamela Salzman

Oh, how nice it is to be home for the weekend!  I spent the last three weekends out of town and I am delighted to hunker down in front of the fire with good book.  Of course, I can’t make a move wihtout my dinner planner every week.  Here’s this week’s dinner planner for your inspiration:Dinner Planner - Week of March 5th, 2018 | Pamela Salzman


Meatless Monday: Loaded baked potato soup bar from my cookbook with chopped chives, shredded cheese, greek yogurt, roasted broccoli and Brussels sprouts and diced avocado. You could also serve this with avocado toast or grilled cheese.

Tuesday: Black rice salad (you can add shredded chicken or sauteed shrimp), sesame roasted cauliflower with nori

Wednesday: Swiss chard frittata, green salad with everyday salad dressing #2

Thursday: Vegetarian kale Caesar salad with grilled chicken (or chickpeas/white beans to keep it vegetarian), roasted sweet potato wedges roasted with garlic ghee and sprinkled with thyme and salt and pepper.

Friday: Shrimp with white beans, tomatoes and spinach, steamed white rice with chopped herbs (dill, parley, chives)

Saturday Lunch: Cauliflower and kimchi “fried rice” from Gweneth Paltrow’s book “It’s All Easy”, topped with a poached or fried egg

Sunday: (don’t forget to spring forward!) Baked chicken with artichokes and capers, millet-cauliflower mash


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


Wash/dry greens and herbs

Make chicken or vegetable stock

Shred cheese and roast vegetables for the baked potato soup bar

Make salad dressings

Grate the gruyere cheese, if using

Cook the black rice

Blanche the edamame or defrost if you have frozen (usually already blanched), store in the fridge

Cook beans, if not using canned


Make croutons for kale salad (you can store these on the sheet pan on your countertop or in a ziplock bag at room temperature)


Salt the chicken

  1. Have you ever used anything other than shrimp for this? I keep kosher and can’t eat shrimp or other shellfish
