Pickled Cucumber Salad

This cucumber salad gets its name from the apple cider vinegar. It lends a sweet and sour tang to this dish that reminds me of fresh pickles. Cucumber salad also makes a great topping for your turkey burger or salmon cakes in place of pickle relish.

Orange Beet Mimosa

Orange juice makes everything sweet and sunny. Beets add jewel-like color as well as added nutrition to this classic brunch drink.

Quinoa Risotto

Risotto is prized for its creamy texture and rich taste. Quinoa is naturally creamy and makes a lighter, whole grain version of this popular Italian comfort food. Spinach adds extra nutrition and flavor.

Baked Tomatoes with Grapes

I was recently leafing through Michele Scicolone’s cookbook ‘The Antipasto Table’, coming across a recipe that I tried over seven years ago… and yes, it sounds like a bizarre combo.

Citrus Smoothie

Smoothies can be a no-mess way to get in vital nutrients that you may be lacking in your everyday diet, like vitamin C and calcium. They are superfast to whip up and the creamy texture can help fight cravings for sweets and frozen treats.

Snow Peas with Orange Zest and Garlic

Anyone who has minimal cooking experience will like this recipe – even my husband, the reluctant cook. Just be sure not to overcook the snow peas.

Creamy Spinach Dip

Artichokes make this creamy spinach dip chunky and satisfying without adding loads of extra fat that the traditional versions has. Artichokes are also high in fiber and make for an excellent salad dressing.

Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a world famous dessert and almost every culture has their version. I add coconut milk to mine for creaminess, but the core flavor of this pudding is vanilla. Even people who aren’t coconut fans still dig in.
