This grapefruit and avocado salad kind of reminds me of the type of salad I’d order while out to brunch with friends. The kind of brunch where we all decide to order something different and share because everything looks too delicious. Eaten on a sunny patio with a mimosa or two. Though I might just … Continue reading GRAPEFRUIT AND AVOCADO SALAD
This salad is another recipe that was inspired by my reading through The Complete Mediterranean Cookbook. I came across a beet and citrus salad and thought “Hey! I have beets and citrus!” Then I realized I didn’t have any arugula. Or blood oranges, ricotta salata cheese, or sherry vinegar. But this is why I love … Continue reading BEET AND CITRUS SALAD WITH LABNEH

That’s what I did with the cauliflower quinoa salad. Cauliflower really lends itself to added flavors and roasting in a balsamic … Continue reading CAULIFLOWER QUINOA SALAD
