So easy to slap together and soooo addictive. I made this up and ate the WHOLE thing!. It does taste like tropical fruit punch! And so healthy too! Have it as a garnish, breakfast, dessert, with fish (salmon), whatever your heart desires
This is delicious, low-fat and super-easy ... I like to load it up with extra cilantro and tomatoes. Also try using lime juice in place of the lemon juice for a little different taste. It's a perfect vegetarian main dish salad, or serve it as a side dish with grilled or roasted pork or ham. Prep time includes time spent in the refrigerator blending flavors; yield depends on whether salad is eaten as the main dish or as a side dish.
A simple marinated zucchini salad from Italy.
The zucchini is uncooked but through marinating and the use of plenty of lemon juice the zucchini acquires an "al dente"/semi-cooked texture. I only make this recipe at the peak of zucchini season in summer when quality and selection are best. From Mediterranean Light. Especially good with fresh basil!
I have purchased a similar sandwich at Starbucks and Whole Foods grocery store. I am the avocado lover in my house, so when I make just one sandwich, I eat the rest to avoid wasting it or having brown avocado in my refrigerator. I can't say that I mind!
The olives really make this dip - don't omit them! :) I'm a diehard carnivore, but I was going to a potluck and wanted to bring a cheap, egg-free, dairy-free dish in case there were allergies or vegetarians there. I took about six recipes off the Internet, combined them and added a few more things, and it was great! I let it sit in the fridge for two days and just re-mixed it before serving. At the potluck, there was not a single vegetarian there, and they all liked this dip. Cayenne and grated carrot would probably be great in this and make it a more "traditional" spinach dip. You may want to start with less garlic if you're not a big fan.
From the "World's Healthiest Foods" website. It states, "Made quickly and fresh tasting and a great way to add more veggies to your diet. Can be made in advance and kept in the fridge. Give it a little extra time to marinate before serving and the flavor will be even better." I thought it was very good, more affordable and very different from the antipastos I am use to. Hope it works for you. Turning the carrots just means that you cut on a diagonal from each side. Just cut them at your preference. Dressing recipe and ingredients included below.
