Strawberry Caprese Bites


For an easy summer appetizer just stack a strawberry, a mozzarella ball and a leaf of basil on a toothpick! Like my Watermelon Feta Mint bites, they are great for BBQs and picnics as they can easily be made ahead. They were part of a summer entertaining menu I put together for InStyle magazine recently- see the whole menu here!

Avocado Onion Rings


These Avocado Onion Rings can be baked or fried and are great with any dipping sauce (I like tahini). If frying, just brown both sides in olive oil on medium in a non-stick pan. Cutting them into rings works best if the avocados are firm-ripe. Enjoy!

Cottage Cheese Lettuce Cups


I have been making a lot of lettuce cups for lunch lately- it seems more fun than a salad! These cottage cheese lettuce cups are a high protein, energy packed and very simple. I use pepitas (pumpkin seeds) a lot because they are cheap and good for you. I like to use Romaine leaves because they fold easily like a taco shell. Maldon salt to taste and enjoy!
