Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Salad with Creamy Chili Lime Dressing SOS Free

I was inspired to make this Mexican fiesta salad/hors d’oeuvre after attending the Food Revolution Summit, this year.  One of the best goals for eating we can have is to try to count the number of plants in each dish.  Here we have over nine.  This means we are getting tons of nutrition in every bite!

Spicy Immune Boosting Vegetable Stock with Ginger and Mushrooms

I made this spicy, gingery, garlicky veggie stock for my best friend Gigi. Born in Texas, we both love spicy foods and she asked me for something to give her dishes a “kick”! Here it is! Not only does this stock tickle your tastebuds, it’s full of nutrients to make you feel great. Use this stock whenever a recipe calls for vegetable stock, or add vegetables to the stock and simmer until cooked through for a delicious, spicy vegetable soup. You can also use it in a salad dressing instead of oil or when making hummus!

Blood Orange Salad with Young Basil and Microgreens

Blood oranges are like the sunset to me!  The colors go from bright orange, to reddish orange and then to a super dark red color…sometimes all in the same orange!  The dark flesh color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a family of polyphenol pigments, usually uncommon in citrus fruits.  Anthocyanins are anti-inflammatory and help prevent cancer, bacterial infections, diabetes and reduce the risk of heart disease.

This not only is a super healthy age defying salad with the addition of sprouts (here we used broccoli sprouts), it is so easy and quick to make!  Both delicious and refreshing– a perfect summer party salad, for sure; one you’ll crave again and again!

Pear, Fig, Apple & Arugula Salad with SOS free Champagne Walnut Vinegar Dressing

My favorite brand of vinegars is from Sparrow Lane.  They make so many beautifully flavored vinegars and one of my favorites is their Walnut Champagne Vinegar.  Mixed with their Golden Balsamic, it makes such a delicious base for a salt and oil free salad dressing.  As soon as fall comes around, all I can think about is my Pear & Arugula Salad using this vinegar in the dressing.  This year I added diced apples and figs for a beautiful fall salad sure to please your palate.

Zucchini Veggie Frittata Salad

I love frittatas.  The first frittata I ever ate was made by my boyfriend’s (at the time) Italian mother.  She sauteed zucchini and other vegetables in lots of oil, salt and garlic, then poured the eggs on top. She let it set, then with a plate, flipped the frittata onto the plate and slid it back into the pan. 

My garden is filled with zucchini right now, so the memory came flooding back to my taste buds.  This time I would make a frittata that is just as flavorful, delicious and much more nutritious and egg-free!

Watermelon Margherita Pizza

It’s National Watermelon Day and most people on the web make a beautiful watermelon pizza with coconut cream sauce and lots of berries on top.  I love Trompe l’oeil (a visual illusion in art).  So I wanted to make this raw fruit pizza look like a real Margherita pizza.  We used mashed banana for the crust, blended strawberries for the tomato sauce, whipped coconut cream for the mozzarella cheese and mint.  Easy to make and such a delightful surprise for your guests!
