Raw Vegetable Salad



Raw Vegetable Salad

There should be a better name for this salad... Any ideas?
It was super yummy. Healthy and refreshing.

Raw Vegetables:
sliced super-thin: Kale, Snap Peas, Yellow Green Beans, Yellow Squash, Raddish
minced: Ginger

Dressing: Brown Rice Vinegar, Braggs Liquid Aminos ("soy" sauce), Sesame Oil

After After

The next day it was even better! This would be a great salad to bring to a BBQ or potluck because you could make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge for a day and get even more delicious.

Summer Tacos

A slight variation on the raw zucchini salad from a few days ago.
Cherry tomatoes added
And then used as filling on a corn tortilla with melted jack cheese.
Avocado garnish & a little hot sauce... Perfetto!
(Accompanied by a dry Sauvignon Blanc, and some dry Salami Toscana)

Surefire Way To An Excellent Meal?

Excellent Ingredients.
These are my spoils from the farmer's market this morning.
Breakfast was a few handfuls of delicious berries, just by themselves. Sometimes it's impossible to improve upon what nature provides.
And dinner? Not exactly sure yet, but I'm excited!

Raw Zucchini Salad

This was my super fast, super simple, dinner on the fly.
Raw zucchini, sliced thin
Black beans
Shallots, sliced thin
Salt & pepper
Oil & red wine vinegar

Left overs

Very unlike me to do leftovers but I couldn't resist adding yesterday's sausage to a nice bowl of lentils and broccoli rabe

Home cookin'

Italian home cooking at it's best. Very simple roasted peppers, italian sausage, rigatoni, dash of gravy, splash of crushed red pepper and parmesan cheese.
