Tomato-cucumber salad

Tomato-cucumber salad

All summer long my family absolutely loves a simple salad of thin sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, because is fresh and pretty much can be eaten with any dish. But if you are busy person as I am, I am sure you don’t have time to make this salad everyday.
This is a trick that i discovered if you want to “meal-prep” when you have a few extra minutes that tastes really good.

CRUSTLESS BREAKFAST SALAD PIZZA

CRUSTLESS BREAKFAST SALAD PIZZA

Years ago I had a very extensive and bountiful herb garden and this recipe started out as a simple herb quiche for a brunch I was hosting, but the “gluten free’s” and the “cutting down on carbers” won out so it became a frittata. Then someone suggested a salad might be nice to add to the menu, and someone else suggested making a breakfast pizza so I just combined all three into this dish. Frittatas however traditionally have cheese in them or on them as do pizzas. I had no cheese! So I used Mayonnaise and a star was born! Enjoy!

Spicy Beef Bulgogi with Daikon Carrot Pickle

Spicy Beef Bulgogi with Daikon Carrot Pickle

Bulgogi is always good, but this one is lovely because it is both beef and spicy! The pickle is also an excellent entry level “kimchi.” It’s easy, mild, and versatile. I keep it around for this, snacking, and banh mi sandwiches.

Baby Mexican Street Corn

Baby Mexican Street Corn

Love elote but can’t eat it gracefully? Here’s a version for dates, parties, and fancy clothes that shouldn’t get messy but should still get all the fun.

The corn skewers can be roasted, broiled or grilled before getting all dressed up. Use Polar baby corn or another brand that you know doesn’t smell like a barnyard, or even fresh if you can get it!

There is nothing better than fresh watermelon in the summer, or in the other seasons to make you think about summer! I came up with this dish as a fun addition to a sushi themed dinner party and it was a big hit.
