Forget the tuna!
Leftover salmon? I really don’t like microwaving leftover salmon, it can dry it out and it is a tad bit depressing to eat dry salmon. My solution? Make salmon salad! Yeah I know mayo isn’t the best food for you, but occasionally it is amazing.
Directions- Add a tablespoon or two of mayo and mix with leftover salmon (canned salmon would work here too). Then add in chopped veggies of your choice, I used tomatoes, carrots, and onion. Season with garlic salt and lemon pepper to taste and top with avocados.
Quick satisfying meal! Enjoy!
Colorful Caprese Salad
MMMMM…Summer. I have been enjoying the sun and reading and most of all cooking. Most people in San Diego do not have AC, which usually isn’t too much of a problem until your apartment is 83+ degrees inside. That makes turning on the oven a huge turn off, which brings me to summer salads. Cool, flavorful, refreshing and filling are all found in this summer salad. Normal caprese salad consists of basil, garlic, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I added some beautiful mini sweet peppers and it was delicious!
6-8 Mini Sweet Peppers
1/3-1/2 c Mozzarella Pearls (little balls of mozzarella)
3-4 Large Leaves of Basil
5-6 Cherry Tomatoes
2-3 Cloves of Garlic
Olive Oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Salt and Pepper to taste
Directions: Thinly slice the sweet peppers and basil. Cut the cherry tomatoes in quarters and mince the garlic. Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix, adding the oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
I enjoyed this poolside with a new book in hand :)
Really Easy Vegan Cabbage Salad w/ Spicy Mayo
I always have so much cabbage and carrots from my CSA box and this is a easy yummy way to eat it up!
1 head of cabbage
1 tbsp veganaise
sriracha to taste
3 carrots shredded
3 radishes thinly sliced
1 small purple onion thinly sliced
Directions: Combine the veggies in a bowl and mix thoroughly. In a separate bowl combine the veganaise and sriracha to make a spicy mayo dressing. Mix both together with as much spicy mayo wanted! I served mine with chopsticks and some garlic chili sauce…I will probably make this every time to use up my cabbage! Enjoy!
