July 4th is almost here!
If you have holiday plans that include a picnic, this potato salad is a perfect side dish. Whether you are hosting, invited as a guest or having your own private soiree, this is a fantastic salad!
I like to use a combination of baby red and yellow potatoes and, if you want to be in the holiday moment, you can also toss in some blue potatoes too!
The addition of the nutritional yeast gives the salad the taste of eggs without using actual eggs!
Asparagus is a wonder-food! It is a great source of Vitamin K which is the vitamin that regulates blood clotting. However, if you are on a blood-thinning medication, it is advisable to check with your health-care provider to make sure asparagus is on your approved list.
In addition, asparagus is a great natural diuretic, nourishes the digestive tract, is a good source of fiber plus is considered an anti-inflammatory food with the extra bonus of being an antioxidant. All in all, this food should be showing up on your table a few times a month!
This dish comes together rather quickly…the risotto needs to be slow-cooked so try not to rush it!
For the second part of my Broccoli Slaw plate here is the recipe for the Cous-Cous Salad. This is delicious salad, served warm or cold and is based on Ina Garten’s Recipe. Add some veggies you love other than the ones in the recipe. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
