Memorial Day Salad

Cate MacKrell

As we prepare for our Memorial Day gatherings, try this healthy patriotic salad.  Quinoa is one of my favorite ancient grains.  It is gluten free and is considered one of nature's perfect foods.

Add some blueberries, strawberries, a touch of olive oil and orange juice to liven this salad. This salad is vegan and works well perfect for a picnic.

This Memorial Day take a moment to remember those who sacrificed for us.  Although Memorial Day is dedicated to those who have passed, it is also fitting to remember our veterans who have served for our country.  Thanks to all the Veterans out there!

Be well & enjoy,

Asian Mint Noodle Salad

Cate MacKrell

Ah, the freshness of Spring.  Walking through the herb garden, looking for signs of life, I know Mint will always remind me that Spring has arrived.  The varieties of Mint are endless and always add a freshness to recipes followed by a cool finish.

Today's herb recipe stems from my love of noodle salads.  I wanted to create a recipe that everyone could eat, including those on gluten free diets. For the noodles, I cooked quinoa noodles al dente.  Quinoa spaghetti style noodles are delicious. The dressing was traditional with rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and tamari.

To kick start this salad, I added thinly sliced baby bok choy and beautiful spring radishes. Adding fresh chopped mint cooled the bite of the radishes and rounded out the flavors.  This salad may be served immediately or refrigerated and served later.  It is a great salad to take on picnics being dairy free.

Visit the mint in your garden or plant some today.

Be well & enjoy,
