Now that Spring is here, let's start making refreshing salads! I am sharing with you 5 spring salads to make this week! This is when I start adding fruits to my salads and more raw vegetables. Many fruits I use for salads are now returning for in season. Meaning, juicy fruits for a few months! I hate buying, fruits when not in season. Lately, I have been wanting strawberries and even though they aren't in season yet, I decided to buy some. I actually used strawberries in my eggplant salad yesterday. Some of the strawberries were sweet and some were just watery. Which is why, it's good to purchase fruits when they are in season. Anyway, here are 5 spring salads to make this week!
Corn, Kale and Tomato Salad served with lemon pepper salmon. This salad contains just 3 ingredients! Easy, delicious and perfect to serve with salmon. This is one of those dishes that are perfect to make any day, but especially on those busy weeknights. I love to cook but sometimes it feels like a chore instead [...]
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. It is a perfect salad for meatless Monday! Shrimp is great to make during the week since it cooks in under 8 minutes tops. This [...]
Blackened Chicken Salad with Feta Cheese. Doesn't that sound mouth watering? I've been trying different seasonings, lately. Whether I mix the seasonings myself or buy in store. Chicken can get pretty boring if you make it the same way every time. Which is why I enjoy shopping and making new seasoning combinations. The best part [...]
Aside from salmon being my favorite fish to eat, I'd say tilapia is my second favorite. Why? Well, just like salmon, you can serve it with just about anything. There is salad, tacos, serve with a side of rice and vegetables, and the list goes on. I probably make this at least once a week. And honestly, I rarely make the same exact meal with tilapia. I am always coming up with new ideas on how to serve it. Two great things about tilapia is that it cooks in just about 7 minutes tops and it's an affordable fish! Many believe that fish is too expensive to buy every week, but it is actually cheaper than chicken or beef. It is also easier to digest! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed! This week I made chili honey tilapia salad & dressing.
Pomegranates are a winter fruit. Why not indulge and eat tons when they are sweet? The health benefits are amazing! Talk about all the vitamin C and antioxidants they have. Of course there are tons of other health benefits. I have been thinking of what to make for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. After all, it needs to be special since we aren't seeing family this year. Regardless, we are foodies, so there is always a special meal of some sort for the holidays! What about a Pomegranate Winter Salad? Perfect for the holidays right? You get all the winter colors that are so vibrant and beautiful! Setting the table gives it an extra pop of color, serving this dish!?
Fall is here and you can finally feel it in the air. The cold mornings and the leaves turning color. Here comes the holidays filled with sweets and heavy comforting foods! It's easy to crave warm foods in winter to keep toasty and cool foods in the summer. You can still have salads in the winter with warm foods in it! This fall farro salad will keep you full and warm all over!
