  • Natasha, lately I’ve noticed I have been recurring to your videos for dinner inspiration. I never know what to cook for my family of six. Your videos have been very helpful. Guess what’s for dinner tonight…this salad! Can’t wait! Thank you ��

  • Hi my name is Cheyenne I live in newfoundland and Labrador Canada when I started to watch your cooking shows I feel in love with it keep up the good work my husband loves every thing I have cooked from watching your program so keep up the good work I am still watching and learning something new every day.

  • Sara you are such a cool cat! You’re just a breath of sunshine on a cold rainy girl. Keep on cookin sweetie and we’ll keep tuning in!

  • If you can get Cains mayonnaise in your area please do and give it a try. It used to be made only in Maine and it tastes better than Dukes I guarantee you!:-)

  • hey girl…………love your channel don’t exactly know how I found it, but happy I did………………love your recipies…………you’re so versatile.thank you, for sharing………………….

  • Can I just say I am new to your channel……I have already tried 4 recipes from your channel alone……..THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT LOOK EASY AND IT WAS….

  • Hey girl! My mom and I love your recipes. There are certain items you use and recipes you make that make me think you are from the KY-TN-VA area. Where are you from?

  • Hello Sara and Jamie, I absolutely love your videos and recipes, you two are so dang cute! Please tell me where you got your yellow salt and pepper grinders from. Can’t wait to see more, Love from Oregon!

  • Hi Laura! �� I’ve been watching your videos for years.. I would like to know if you can make anything for the people that is lactose.

  • I follow you on Pinterest and I saw that you pinned this, so obviously I had to too! I’m going to try it out for my family Christmas party in a couple weeks! It looks so good!

  • Criszilla you said Laurita not Laura her awesome name is Laura Vitale not Laurita just wanted to tell you that not being a hater��


  • Made this salad today and it is so yummy and satisfying! Loved it! Everything you make is so delicious I must say:) thank you for these awesome videos!!

  • Laura I love all of your recipes so so much. I watch you everyday! I would really appreciate if you made some more light delicious meals (only sometimes):)

  • looks sooo good!!! i’ve seen ads for Dukes but never tried it. and yes, the options for ingredients are endless. thanks for sharing:D

  • I’ve always wanted to be chef but I ended up to be something else which I think still great. So, my suppressed dreams have been satisfied by watching your videos and I feel like I went to University of Laura V. Hahaha call me crazy but I have recreated a lot of your recipes and I am thankful coz I can still follow my dreams through YouTube!

  • Quickly cutting cherry tomatoes: place a plate on the table upside-down and gather all the tomatoes inside the ring of the bottom of the plate. Put another plate on top of the tomatoes rightside-up. Glide that knife right thru every tomato, like butter.

  • This was crazy good! Probably the best pasta salad I’ve ever made. I use cider vinegar ( using about 1/3 cup) instead of wine vinegar. Also I just added the shredded parmesan directly to the salad itself. Since I had flat leaf parsley in the refrigerator I used that instead of the dried. I never thought of putting a little bit of mayonnaise in my salad dressing but I think it helps the dressing stick to the pasta and veggies a little better. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe! I’ll be making this again and again.

  • Per favore ti scongiuro, fermati! Non ingiuriare ancora la nostra cucina! Una porcheria che di italiano non ha assolutamente niente!

  • Experimenting each dish many times till it reaches perfection, making videos, making vlogs, making other food, having guests over, editing all those videos, social life, social networking, spending time with Joe while not doing the above things, buying different things, travelling… am I the only one who goes mad when I try to think of how Laura finds time to do all these things and much more?

  • Found your YouTube page recently and loving it! My 12 year old daughter and I made this tonight and we loved it! Thanks! Looking forward to trying all your other recipes!

  • Hi Natasha! I’m a big fan even though I’m under 10 but I really love your videos and I CANT STOP WATCHING THIS I pretty much remember all the ingredients and I just want to say I love ur videos and all the creative food making!

    LOLOLOLOLOL….. you are doing something right. Contact your attorney.

  • We call what you call salami, Summer sausage. You like olives? Oh man, we are on a break if so, I hate that shizz! Artichoke hearts are a solid A+ though.

  • such a good idea! something i would love to see you make is a seafood lasagne. i just watched your original lasagne recipe and you mentioned a seafood version… that sounds so good! love your videos:D

  • Good morning Tatyana! ��
    They say you eat with your eyes first and this colorful salad does the trick!
    It looks so delicious….you hit on another wonderful side dish Tatyana, great video.
    This pasta salad will make a wonderful side for me to take to my friends cook-out.
    Liking that lemon dressing, you can’t go wrong with LEMON anything….��
    Have a lovely day Tatyana! ��

  • I make a lot of my own salad dressing bc the store ones almost always have bad oils in them like soybean or canola, which can be easily replaced with olive or avocado oil when you make your own. I also love to add maple syrup in the dressing as a sweetener. It really blends well. I’ve tried honey but it only works in certain dressings.

  • Oops sorry just saw this now my gmail dont show the videos Yum looks delicious i am making this soon with few subs drooling over my samsung galaxy note 8 love your recipes making me hungry Thanks Ramya

  • Absolutely love the splash of colours, makes it look that much more eye catching and appealing. Thank you Tatyana for another amazing recipe

  • Oh man! This had me cracking! You are just great! And just for the record, I did say when for the 1/2 cup you just didn’t listen! �� recipe looks great!

  • Love this, too.  I’m Italian, too.  And actually love this version of antipasto.  Don’t like the version with the anchovies (hairy fish!) LOL.  Everything here looks good to me!

  • That looks so good, Sara. I never heard of adding meat to pasta salad, so look forward to trying that idea. I followed your recipe for Creamy Chicken Florentine this past week (cutting it down to a third of the recipe = four servings) & we so enjoyed it. It already is a favorite for us. Thank you for all the ideas & wonderful dishes you share.

  • Wow, you own a new Global knife I did not notice this one before. That is a G16 or G17 right? Nice salad btw. Thank you for sharing. 

  • I would honestly love more salad recipes. I’m trying to eat healthier and I really enjoy salads, but I find myself eating the same thing all the time, so new ideas would be great.

  • Hi @Laura in the Kitchen wt nail polish color is that? Can u plz tell us.. I loove it soo much.. I gotta have it!.lol..

  • I think you’re so darling! I love watching your little recipes, I’m not the best cook but your recipes are simple for the gal who can’t cook ☺️

  • Like your recipe and organization of ingredients will have to try it. What does your Italian seasoning you add to your dressing consist of? Did you add vinegar? Please let me know. Thank you.

  • I’ve made several of her recipes including this one, and I’m watching it again because I plan to make it again…it’s so good but I get so annoyed when she’s eating it’s not cute. So annoying

  • Laura, I absolutely love your recipes and shows!    A little heads up, putting Garlic in Olive oil will grow botulism, especially when stored and not consumed right away.  Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!

  • O My God I love your smiling your acting you are a an angel to me my dear thanks u by heart dear
    May God Bless U May u live long my
    Dear sister..

  • I love adding sun dried tomatoes in my antipasto along with provolone, Genoa salami, prosciutto, pepperencini!!! Try it it’s so delicious! That salad looked divine!

  • To cut your cherry tomatoes quicker and all at once place between two flat lids and cut in between the lids to cut the tomatoes in half! Learned that from Rachael Ray!

  • This looks delicious! I would leave out the mozzarella and sausage for my version because I have to stick to a low fat diet. I look forward to seeing more salad recipes!

  • Could you do another Valentine’s Day meal again this year?  My husband and I have a newborn at home and I would like to prepare an easy, but special meal for us… Thanks!!

  • @Laura in the Kitchen Hii Laura,  since I saw and subscribed to your channel, I have found a love for cooking and it is amazing. Thanks:)

  • Can I just say that is one of the largest single cloves of garlic i have ever seen?!?! Maybe it’s the angle or the small dish it’s in but it looks like it’s as big as my whole thumb lol. 

  • Wow! I am gonna make this one day, soon!
    Thanks Natasha.
    I have tried quite a few of your recipes and they have all come out very well!

    Thanks once again

  • I once made a salad. It was like a casual starter salad. It had carrot, banana, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and lemon juice to make it a bit more sour and a bit more fruity.
    🙂 hoped this helped.

  • We’re going into Summer soon and I cannot wait to make this. Every single ingredient in it is my absolute favourite!!! Thanks so much Tatyana for another super delicious recipe:)

  • LOL Laura, I can never say no to spicy, but let me tell you… My GI tract does not appreciate it, if you know what I mean. For a second, I thought that’s what you were alluding to LOL!

  • Back in the day, assembling an antipasto salad is the main reason I loved restaurants with salad bars. Buying $30 worth of ingredients for a couple of salads seemed crazy to me.

  • I always wonder this when I watch american cooking shows/videos… Don’t you guys have garlic “crushers”? I mean sometimes you want it chopped but when you want it fine the crushers are so much handier than graters. Am I the only one wondering about this? ☺️

  • “I’m sorry I wasted my money on you!!!” ������ I don’t eat meat, but I LOVE basically every other ingredient (especially artichokes ����)
