Sure, salads are easy to make. But making the same salads over and over can get pretty boring. You want to elevate your palate to actually enjoy what your eating. Some salads I repeat but many times, I come up with new salads, more often. Whether I came up with a new idea or just using leftover vegetables to make a salad. Here are 6 easy salads to try at home.
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!
Burrito bowls are delicious and you can add whatever you'd like to create your own! Best of all, you can skip the extra calories by skipping the tortilla or taco shell. Tacos are easy to make but burritos are just as easy! It's mid week and I am already planning my next meals for the week and thought I'd share with you what I plan on making. Here are 5 burrito bowls to make this week!
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 [...]
Salt and pepper shrimp is pretty tasty. Especially when it's fried. Truth is I don't fry food because of all the extra oil it takes to cook food and the smell of the oil. I prefer to bake or broil food instead of frying. For this recipe, I decided not to bread the shrimp. What would salt and pepper shrimp taste without the fried breading. After all it's one of those appetizers that you can't really say no to. Well I decided to take a chance and make salt and pepper shrimp (served 2 ways) in healthier way. Minus all the sodium in the salt! You really can't make salt and pepper shrimp without the salt!
For dinner I made a buttery garlic shrimp pasta. I have to admit I have been wanting pasta lately and my little one really enjoys it. It's also an excuse to make it more often. First of all it's easy, quick and very filling. Pasta is definitely a dish for those busy school nights. On top of that, the shrimp cooks in just about the same time your pasta cooks! I made this dish with the thought I could make it for Christmas Eve or Christmas. Pasta and seafood are dishes I lean towards for the holidays. Maybe because they are comforting dishes. Garlic Shrimp Pasta is easy but can be made as fancy as you want it!

I’ve been using this new sauce from Whole Foods, called Garlic Rosemary Citrus Sauce. It is amazing! It reminds me of a warm winter dish but incorporated with a summer salad gives it a cozy yet, refreshing taste. With it I made shrimp and watermelon kale salad. It is springtime but the weather has not [...]
