If you like “no-recipe-required” recipes, you’ll love this easy spring strawberry salad! All you need for measuring purposes is one clean hand! You can play with the concept with add-on’s if you wish, like cashew cheese, red onion, avocado, and fresh mint. You can follow this same “recipe” with other fruits too, like mangos, peaches, and grapes. Hope you enjoy this taste of the season. Happy spring (to be)!
It’s the time of year for showers, picnics, and other fun gatherings. So, this is also the time of year I create a new salad to serve for these joyful occasions. So, what’s in my new salad? Well, it’s a farro salad. But it’s way beyond just that. It’s full of refreshing ingredients, intriguing textures, lots of nutrition, and pops of color. It’s totally not one of those salad afterthoughts … it’ll be the star of the plate!
Los Angeles is the city I travel to most often. That’s because five of my closest friends live there. Yep, they’re all of the way on the other coast from me. (Could it be something I said?!) In any case, on my most recent trip, I went for business and stayed several nights at The Line Hotel. On the day I settled in, I decided to grab a bite at the hotel restaurant, Openaire—and devoured a sandwich made with avocado, braised carrots, sunflower tahini, shaved fennel, and sprouts on 7-grain bread. I was inspired … as you can see by this recipe. It’s my twist on it.
Whenever there’s a way to prevent food waste, count me in! In fact, I find it to be a culinary adventure. You never know what you might be able to create from leftover food scraps!
I seriously don’t think I could live without hummus. Being half Lebanese could be one reason for that! The other is that I simply love it. It’s definitely one of my top go-to foods when I need a fast fix. How about you? While I adore the classic version, I also enjoy mixing things up with a non-traditional version every once in a while.
