This grapefruit mint kale salad is so refreshing I swear I heard an audible sigh of deliciousness from my husband when I served it to him for the first time. It has a base of tender and crispy (a contradiction, I know, but it’s true!) kale, sliced almonds, cool mint, and segmented grapefruit tossed with a light honey lime dressing.

Just the right amount of crunch meets sweet and tangy. There’s even protein. And, it’s not too heavy.

Corn, Tomato & Avocado Salad

I have a little raised garden bed in my backyard where five things are growing; basil, oregano, two kinds of thyme and the tiniest tomatoes imaginable. Here in Las Vegas I haven’t had much luck gardening, but I’m enchanted by my little planter.  Continue reading “Corn, Tomato & Avocado Salad”
