Happy Spring! It's finally here! Some days it feels like Spring is in the air but other days, it reminds me it's still March and here in Massachusetts, we have the craziest weather. One day it's cold, one day it's warm! Regardless of the weather, I know spring is slowly trickling in. To celebrate the [...]

My last post was a Blackened Chicken Salad with Feta Cheese recipe. Today's recipe, is a Blackened Shrimp Salad with Red Kidney Beans. Same seasoning but a completely different salad.

Here is another yummy winter salad that is colorful and super filling. It is also meatless! Perfect for Meatless Mondays! It is a 4 Ingredient Kale Winter Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Roasted Chickpeas and Wild Rice. A fresh COLD salad ONLY screams spring or summer to me. During the winter I crave warm and cozy foods. The same goes for salads in the winter. To make this salad hearty, I sautéed the kale. I then roasted the chick peas and sweet potatoes. The fourth ingredient is wild rice, which I had as a leftover. All I had to do was heat it up. I served it with a vinaigrette dressing made up of olive oil, lemon and salt. And guess what? It only took me 20 minutes to make this DELICIOUS WINTER SALAD.
I was thinking of what to call this salad. Besides the color orange, we have the colors of the rainbow in this salad. I decided on calling it the Rainbow Roasted Vegetable Salad. Here we have red peppers and red onions. The onions look purple. Not sure where red comes in! Then there is broccolini and kale, corn and chickpeas and lastly, the blue cheese. This salad was so filling and so good! I went shopping for the ingredients for a second time. On my list for dinner this week, AGAIN!

It is springtime but the weather has not [...]
