Vidalia & Cherry​ Tomato Salad

This deceptively simple salad is really quite delightful! So few ingredients, so much flavor. The combination of Oliva’s Cranberry-Pear Balsamic and Persian Lime Olive Oil is one of my favorites. The tartness of the tomatoes and Cranberry Pear Balsamic is a perfect balance to the sweetness of the Vidalia. The Persian Lime oil smoothly blends… Continue reading Vidalia & Cherry​ Tomato Salad

Not here, anyway. This is a great intro-to-kale dish. You don’t even have to tell anyone that’s what the green stuff is, it’ll be… Continue reading Herbed Wild Rice With Carrots & Kale

The shape results in more beet meat per beet, which is important when garden space is limited. I’d been watching this one beet all summer. It was evident that it… Continue reading Golden Beets Roasted With Spuds & Onions
