photo(84)

 

This is a remake of a salad that I’ve had at Season’s 52. It is their Quinoa-citrus salad and is on their autumn menu. Eat it ‘as is’ or add in some of your future, leftover turkey and enjoy it as a full meal. Other additions could include your favorite chopped nut, some crumbled bleu cheese, or finely chopped spinach. And this can be eaten cold or warm. So many options!!

  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries (preferably unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 cup diced apple

Place cranberries into a bowl and pour OJ and zest on top of them. Allow them to sit about 10 min. Add in the quinoa and apple and stir. It is actually better to make this ahead of time and then place in the fridge until ready to eat. Enjoy!

I now have the pleasure of harvesting fresh kale from my milk crate garden.

Last week, I made my first kale salad of the season and added one of my homegrown peppers and the pumpkin seeds we de-gutted and roasted from our pumpkin. I added some minced garlic, a spray of olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon juice along with a a shake of pepper and salt to create this simple salad.
