Kale Caesar Salad

It may be trendy, it may be cool….but I don’t think I will ever outgrow kale. Call this a trendy spin on the classic Caesar Salad or call it anti-oxidizing. I simply call it a delicious salad you can throw together in 15 minutes. 

Aztec Kale Salad

Served with a cup of Creamy Tortilla Soup, this salad makes the perfect Mexican-inspired dinner. To make a complete meal of the salad alone, toss in some chicken breast, cumin-marinated tofu, or carne asada.

Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

My sister introduced me to this recipe during her pre-Thanksgiving party at her new condo. It is clean tasting, healthy, and super simple to make. After you make this salad, you’ll be glad not only for the short grocery trip but also for all the leftovers!

Dinner for One

Throughout my life, cooking has been a means not only of creative expression but also of caring for the ones you love.
