All good Southerners and their friends know that the secret to a prosperous New Year is to eat black eyed peas on New Year’s Day! But, I just don’t make this salad for New Year’s Day. I’m taking this dish to a Christmas party and I’m certain that it will be one of the first things that will go quickly.
I like to take advantage of tasty autumn apples by making a healthy salad that consists of kale, Honeycrisp apples, hazelnuts, dried cranberries, and a light homemade dressing. Apart from their appetizing crunch, Honeycrisp apples have a clean and sweet flavor. They are a mixture of sweet and tart that creates a unique and flavorful apple. As an added bonus, Honeycrisp apples have a longer shelf life, if stored properly.
I’ve been making this slaw for many years and it’s safe to say that it is a firm favorite. Prepared with lots of fresh ingredients and tossed with a thick Asian dressing it’s packed with flavor and delivers a satisfying crunch. Make a big batch and keep it in the fridge for lunches.
This vibrant gazpacho showcases organic summer produce by using ripe, seasonal heritage tomatoes. Garden Gazpacho is wonderful enjoyed outside as part of a picnic or to begin an alfresco dinner party. I like to use a mixture of red, yellow and orange tomatoes of different shapes and sizes to capture as many flavors as possible.
This vegetable side dish is extra delicious thanks to the kick of heat from red pepper flakes and a bright shot of lemon.
Avocado Hummus is great as a dip or a spread for lettuce wrap sandwiches. I love a Keto friendly snack that will keep me satisfied until my next meal.
Fresh from the garden peas layered with silky sesame oil provides an earthiness while the garlic contributes a pungent counterpoint. Simple, yet complex, this pea recipe is a delicious side dish that goes with almost any main dish.
I love to serve this bright and crunchy salad as a side dish for grilled steak, piled onto a fish taco, or as a topper for a chicken sandwich.
This Berry Crumble is made with fresh or frozen berries and topped with a dairy free brown sugar crumble. An excellent dessert that everyone can enjoy.
