Mediterranean Chopped Salad
A Generous Arrangement of Romaine Lettuce, Black Olives, Feta Cheese, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Roasted Peppers, Capers, Red Onions and Slivered Almonds. This salad brings together healthy ingredients to satisfy your appetite. Salads for dinnertime are a great idea! They are quick to make as well healthy as long as you watch the types of additions and dressings you add. This Mediterranean salad uses healthy oils, veggies, and cheese. Topped with a virgin vinegar oil and dressing it can’t get any better. A light meal before bedtime will digest well and sit lightly on your stomach so you can sleep deeply and wake up refreshed. And as a bonus it is only 10 g of fat!
Do you ever crave Mexican style food? I seem to get a craving once in a while that just won’t go away. You know, the kind of craving where you can eat something for every day of the week? I am that way about Mexican right now. There aren’t many vegetables I like to eat warm but refried is one I can eat anytime. The fact that most of my Mexican favorites also have loads of melted cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce and cubes of tomato doesn’t stop me either! I have… Well….confession time….. Been on an anti meat kick lately. I know. This born and raised meat and potatoes girl is swearing off meat. Since I am so picky about veggies this just blows my family away. So what was the point of all that? These nachos are GREAT!
Michigan Berry Salad
I love a good salad, but it also needs some fresh fruit or meat additions. This Michigan Berry Salad really fits the bill. In June we have a pick-your-own berries festival at the farm and orchard a few doors away. I love the ease of getting local fruits and honey when in season. In addition to the strawberries, for this salad you can blueberries, cherries, apples and raspberries. Use my Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing or one of your own!
