Cool Green Salad

Recipe alert! Spring is here and it’s about time for crisp fresh veggies! Also it’s time to take all those layers off and show off those summer bodies, right? Here is a salad that I absolutely love! My mom would always make this and I could eat a whole bowl of it. A light creamy tangy (not too tangy) salad. Great to eat by it self or along side a juicy chicken breast. Cucumber is normally used, but I once steamed some green beans and tossed them with the same mixture. Delicious! So i think any veggie might work with this. Simple 3 ingredient cool green salad to satisfy your taste buds without much guilt.

Roasted Cauliflower with Mustard Vinaigrette

This past Sunday, a friend of mine decide to have a potluck! Seeing that she is vegan, this gave me a chance to practice my vegetarian skills. Scrolling through my IG earlier that day I seen a roasted cauliflower, so that inspired me to make one. I roasted this bad boy for one hour with some carrots and drizzled it with a grainy mustard vinaigrette. Talk about delicious, this dish almost made me turn vegan!
