The Fresh Fork Market season has started! That means we’re getting all sorts of delicious, fresh vegetables and cheeses… which also means we have to figure out what to do with them.
An entire cabbage, shredded, is too much for just coleslaw, so I went looking for another dish to make. I came across this recipe for Crispy Black Bean Tacos with Feta Cheese from Epicurious. Since we also had black beans and green onions from Fresh Fork, it seemed like a no-brainer.
I went for a salad rather than a taco since salads are way easier to eat at work. I’m very pleased with how it turned out – not only delicious, but also very filling!
This is another one that I based on a recipe from Judi Strauss, which I got from one of her Beachwood classes.
This is based on a Betty Crocker recipe. It’s one of those “so simple you can’t really call it a recipe” things, but it’s delicious, so I thought I’d share.
- Tortilla wrap
- I like Whole Foods Whole Wheat wraps
- Peanut butter
- Honey or chocolate chips (optional)
- Spread peanut butter thinly on tortilla
- Place banana on tortilla (towards one edge)
- Add honey or chocolate chips (optional)
I’ve made two delicious taco salads recently. They were really so different that I should refer to them as two different salads – a baa taco salad (because I had lamb in it – get it?), and a chicken taco salad. But they were similar enough that I think one post will do.
“Baa” Taco Salad
Chicken Taco Salad
Another delicious and simple salad!
The title really says it all. It’s a great combo of crunchy and smooth, sweet and savory.
While I don’t like being a follower, I must admit that I’ve definitely jumped onto the Greek Yogurt bandwagon. I’ve used it in place of sour cream, ranch dressing (with some added spices), and now in place of mayo. I never really liked mayo much to begin with.
This is a very simple salad, but the addition of horseradish really made it excellent.
Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I’ve alternated between traveling, being busy, and being sick for the past month or so.
During one of my bouts of sickness, I ended up unable to cook all of the food I’d planned on making for a party. With the leftovers from unmade dishes and previously made dishes, I made this Curry Apple Onion Goat Cheese “Pizza.”
A bit of an unusual combination, but it was delicious!
