This light, refreshing salad has lots of flavor and textures to please your palate.
This homemade raspberry vinaigrette recipe is beautiful, colorful, healthy, and simply awesome over salad or poached, baked or roasted vegetables. Unlike some raspberry vinaigrette dressings I’ve tried, this one is a little tart rather than sickly sweet. We like it over poached asparagus and in our salad of baby lettuce with pecans and avocado.
This light, refreshing salad comes alive with the addition of mint– a common addition to salads throughout the Middle East!
This salad is a crunchy alternative to taco night. You can get creative with the ingredients; consider adding cilantro, pistachios, diced sweet onion or red peppers. If you really want to get fancy, serve the salad in a taco shell bowl. For picky eaters, serve the ingredients separately. Little ones (ages 3 and up) might enjoy using a toothpick to pick up the beans, olives, and other morsels.
With a consistency similar to tapioca pudding, chia pudding packs a nutritional punch with omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, and protein. We love it for breakfast with fresh or frozen berries mixed in (make a double or triple batch and you’ll have breakfast ready for the week!), or as a dessert with an extra drizzle of maple syrup.
