Roasted Cauliflower Kale Salad with Dried Cherries, Walnuts, and Feta
I NEED to add roasted veggies to my salads more often. This was SO delicious. First of all, any deeply roasted veggie is my best friend. And then added to a salad?! My new favorite thing. I’m one of those weirdos that loves salads and craves veggies more than anything. It’s true. The combo of flavors in here is insane. #nosadsalads.

Pork and Mexican food are two things I couldn’t live without. I know you know about my Mexican food obsession, but not sure about pork. Hence, the need to share this recipe today. I want to share more pork recipes on the blog, because it’s seriously my favorite meat and I have so many recipes I want you guys to try! Pulled pork is probably my favorite way to eat it, but bacon comes in a close second. (Sometimes first, depending on my mood).

Greek Yogurt Caesar Pesto Pasta Salad with Grilled Chicken and Arugula
Today’s recipe is all about simple and classic. Who doesn’t love pasta salad? Such a nostalgic favorite. Makes me think of summertime and cookouts and beautiful weather. All things I could totally go for right now. Plus, I used chickpea pasta! Which I’m obsessed with lately. If you’ve never had it, it’s made from chickpeas (obviously) and its a lot higher in protein and fiber, and lower in carbs than regular pasta. Love it!

Mexican Kale Salad with Chili Lime Cashew Dressing
Mexican food will forever be in my top, well, if not my FAVORITE type of food. I hate saying favorite, because I have so many “favorites”..cue eye roll. I really just LOVE so many things. I’m serious about the Mexican food though. I could eat tacos, taco salads, fajitas, enchiladas, chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, chips and guac, and margaritas for seriously every meal and never get sick of them. This meal is a healthy version of one of my favorite things..a taco salad!

I totally go through phases with chicken. I eat it pretty often. Almost too often..to a point where I get sick of it. Like everyone, I’m sure. Sometimes I want chicken several times a week, and others none. I eat it on salads for lunch, for quick dinners, and basically added to any dish for an easy, versatile┬áprotein. This recipe is perfect for those times when you’re sick of chicken, but still want something healthy and flavorful! Or, it could be a last minute holiday dinner. Festive colors, too!
