We’re excited to have our Superfood Salad featured in the January/February issue of 805 Living Magazine (see page 72)!

Super foods offer nutritional benefits that help boost our immunity and prevent disease. This salad features broccoli, walnuts, apple, and spinach – all nutritional powerhouses. Quinoa is a gluten-free whole grain and one of the few complete vegetarian sources for protein. This is the type of delicious healthful food we plan on preparing for you once our space opens at the Santa Barbara Public Market this spring. Enjoy it in good health!

Salad Obsession: Asian Chicken Salad with Snap Peas

My summer salad obsession continues. The best part about this recipe is the Mango Sesame Dressing. I’ve been making it for years. I use it on mixed greens, as a dipping sauce for chicken, or as glaze for on the grill. Udon, traditional Japanese noodles, can be found in the most grocery stores or at World Market. They cook in about 4 minutes and are delicious served hot or cold. If you can’t find udon noodles, use whole wheat spaghetti as a substitute. This is a great summer-time meal!

Clementine Jicama Salad

I had a bunch of “cuties” and wanted to feature them in a salad with Grilled Mahimahi. This fresh little Clementine Jicama Salad delivered crunch, color and herb-y goodness!

Make a double batch – it lasts for days!

Every House Needs a Dressing: Here’s Mine + Salad

Every Summer, my Aunt finds a white wine that she loves, at a reasonable price point, buys a case, and serves it all season. She calls it her “house white wine.” She does the same with a red in the Winter. “House” offerings are standards. They are those reliable libations and recipes upon which one can always count. I feel the same way about my house dressing. I avoid bottled dressings because I’m not looking for reasons to add sugar to my diet. This Champagne Vinaigrette is simple, tangy and a delightful addition to mixed green salads, pasta salads and more. It goes especially well on this Chicken, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad. I hope you like it.
