So I learned. That's the fun getting new produce every week. It is forcing me to create dishes with veggies I don't usually buy. I made an apple and beet salad for dinner tonight using this recipe. I didn't have shallots so I used red onion and I didn't have walnuts so I omitted. Verdict? Gorgeous and delicious (plus healthy). Who knew!
This week I have carrots coming out the wah-zoo so I might make this recipe posted on Shared Legacy. I will most likely omit the FULL FAT coconut milk for low fat or do some fat free half and half plus skim. I am most sure it won't be as thick, but it will taste good and I won't feel bad about eating
Since we are having a carrot surplus, I also made some of that amazing ginger-carrot dressing you get on a salad when you go to a hibachi restaurant, but found a healthy way to make it. Can it be healthy in the restaurant? No way! It's too good! Well, anyway, this was just as fantastic and I even ate some of it warm like a soup. Here's what I did almost exactly.
What have you been eating this summer?
