This is a tasty and healthy spring salad to help you get back on track and into that daunting summer bathing suit! It is filling by itself as a light lunch or as a side to something off the grill. With this dish you will not feel like you've been cheated out of a meal as you sometimes do with other lighter options.
YOU WILL NEED:
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 ripe avocado
2 ears fresh sweet corn
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro or parsley
HONEY LIME DRESSING:
juice of 1 lime (lemon works well too)
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp honey
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
dash of cayenne pepper
Remove husks from corn and grill over medium heat for 10 minutes. The corn should be tender with some grill marks. Cut the corn off of the cob then scape the cob with your knife to get the remaining juices. Set aside to cool. Slice the grape tomatoes in half, dice the avocado into bite-sized pieces and finely chop the cilantro. Combine all ingredients together gently being careful not to mash the avocados.
Add all four ingredients for the dressing in a bowl. Whisk well.
Pour dressing over salad and gently stir in. Let it rest 10 to 15 minutes at least so flavors can mingle.

Summer is here and the grills are heating up. Try this kale salad as a nice compliment to any of your grilled entrées. My niece Laura made this for us at one of our Catoe family gatherings. My sister’s–in-law and I loved it. We kept the guys away from it by just saying “kale salad” over and over, that pretty much worked for us!! They wouldn’t even try it (More for us). No worries though, this tasty salad will be a hit with everyone; guys included.
You will need:
1 pint strawberries
1-2 apples cored and diced
4oz crumbled goat cheese (or other soft cheese)
1/4 c chopped pecans, toasted (optional)
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
Balsamic vinaigrette (see below)
½c extra virgin olive oil
1/4c white Balsamic vinegar
1/2t sea salt
1/4t cracked black pepper
*whisk all ingredients together until combined
*Remember to wash and massage kale thoroughly; this keeps it from being so tough
Toss all ingredients and serve immediately. This is a great side dish for a summer time meal and it brings a pop of color to any table.
This is a recipe from my good friend Carolyn. “A friend loves at all times…” (Proverbs 17:17) A friend with a helpful recipe and new idea for dinner, I love anytime.
1/2 box cooked noodles (children's choice - my daughter always loves bowtie and spiral the best)
Cherry tomatoes - cut in half
Broccoli crowns cut in bite sized pieces
Olive slices green or black
Red pepper strips
Cucumbers - diced
Cheddar cheese - cut in small cubes
pepperoni, ham, or turkey - cut in strips
Pour 1/2 to whole bottle of Wishbone Robusto Italian Dressing on top and toss. You're done!
(These are the basic veggies we use at my house but omit and/or add any veggies or meats your family likes. I mainly just use what is already in my refrigerator or garden) (Yes she has a garden!!!)
