Crunchy Kale Fattoush

I do believe I have discovered the dressing secret of my favorite salad at Mandaloun Mediterranean.  It is tart, tangy, sweet perfection and I think I figured it out by accident.  On a whim, while at the St Augustine Farmers Market I decided I would make a version of the […]

Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad 3

Chewy, peanutty barley mingled with super sweet raisins and crisp apples. Peanut Butter, Barley, Apple, Raisin Salad is like a peanut butter and jelly party in my mouth.

Sweet Curry Roasted Butternut and Pear Salad with Walnuts 19

One of my favorite salads at Native Sun is a curry sweet potato pear salad with walnuts.  There is something about the sweetness of the pear and sweet potato against the spice mixture of the curry and the nutty walnuts that makes it a perfect balance.  I recreated it once […]

I got my camera back. Yay! Depth of field again. Toasted Garbanzo Mediterranean Salad […]
