"Rach's pal Daisy Martinez assembles an exotic salad that gets its kick from a can." Recipe from Rachael Ray's magazine. I LOVE this recipe!!! I did switch up the dressing a bit by using 2 T oil, 2 T lime juice and 2T orange juice which was perfect for us.
This beet, avocado and feta salad is a favorite in our household! It was introduced to us by my friend Rocio - she said that this is a common salad in her country, Chile. Creamy, sweet, salty and crunchy. . try it. . .you'll like it!!!

A great summer time soup. 30 minute meal by Rachael Ray. I serve mine aside a wedge salad topped with blue cheese dressing. Fabulous! If you are looking to save a little time, simply place a dollop of salsa on the top and sprinkle with feta. NOTE: I made this today and I suggest that you use 2 large avocados in the soup itself (not just 1 as per the recipe). I also recommend that you just use 1 cup (more or less) to thin out the soup instead of crushing ice cubes (not sure why you do that when you put it in the fridge to chill anyway). Lastly, we LOVED the crumbled feta on the top (actually made the dish to be honest) so don't leave this step out.

These are wonderful. Creamy and sweet and super healthy! Feel free to add one whole mango to the concoction (but then I usually add 6 oz mango juice and 6 oz water because I don't like mine super sweet).
