Kale Ceasar Salad

November 23rd, 2018 by

Well, I must admit, this was a home run, both in terms of speed and taste. We were racing to make the Thanksgiving veggies and get to our special holiday meal at my sister-in-law’s home.  I was planning to make another dish, but in our rush, this one came together more quickly, so we went with it. Upon trying it, everyone said they loved it, even John, and EVEN my two year old! The dressing is walnut, parsley, olive oil, lemon, garlic, miso and white balsamic. I used the common curly green kale, massaged the dressing in and topped it with a few crunchy cruton substitutes: slivered almonds and pumpkin seeds. You can also sprinkle in some parmesan cheese, if you’d like.

Zingy Tuna Salad

August 10th, 2017 by

Zingy tuna salad packs lots of nutrients, flavor and texture: lemon, raw crushed garlic, dill, favorite mustard, hummus, red wine vinegar, olive oil, chopped olives, red onion, celery, and red bell pepper.

Raw garlic is so good for you! And this recipe is one delicious way to incorporate it into your cuisine. Don’t be shy! If my 1-year-old can do it, you can too. After his first bite of this dish, my 1-year-old signed “more,” for another, and another, until he and I polished off the entire batch in one sitting.

Serve atop a leaf of kale or lettuce on a flourless sprouted grain English muffin (often found in freezer of health food section).

Beet Up The Greens: A Mystical Salad

August 2nd, 2017 by

Once upon a time, there was a Field of Fresh Greens.

Then one day, the field of fresh greens wanted more, so he called on the powers of Sweet Beets, Tangy Goat Cheese, Tart Dried Cherries and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds to rain on him and he was happy.

He was overfilled with happiness and strength and was the most powerful Field of Greens in the land.

But he was still a bit lonely. So, he hired a friend named Miso Dijon Vinaigrette who had qualities that he liked: oily olive oil, sour-sweet lime, spunky dijon, and mellow white miso. Now he was happy, strong, powerful, and in the good company of friends with great taste.
