I love this potato salad recipe because it can be served warm or at room temp, which makes it great for entertaining (or for picnics!). My full post with more photos and the full recipe is on the Better Homes & Gardens website today.

Cheers!

You can tell it’s summer when corn shows up in your CSA box. Sweet and crunchy- nothing like it!  Roast it up with a little cauliflower to make a tasty, light taco filling (no beans, rice or meat needed!).  Flour or corn tortillas work, and you could use sour cream instead of greek yogurt. For hot sauce, I used good ol’ Tapatio. Enjoy!

To kick off summer, yesterday we had some friends over for a Memorial Day BBQ. People brought the most wonderful things to share like tzatziki potato salad (yogurt instead of mayo, brilliant) and a raw kale salad with shaved parmesan and tofu. My husband fired up the grill and made an awesome flank steak that had been marinated for hours in sesame and garlic. I had some fennel from our CSA box to use up so I combined cauliflower, fennel and onions with lots of spices and olive oil and roasted them until they were carmelized. I also made up a light arugula salad with shaved raw fennel and oranges. Welcome, summer!

Red Roasted Carrots

Combine a couple pinches (or a half teaspoon each) of cinnamon, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder and sea salt. Mix spices well in a bowl (or bag!) with 5 or 6 diagonally (oval) cut carrots plus 1T olive oil and 1t sesame oil. Roast at 400 for 20 minutes on a cookie sheet until the edges are crispy brown. Enjoy warm!
