This Miracle Marinade For All Meats and Shrimp is THE most asked for recipe in my whole collection. Why, you ask? Because it is soooooo good, takes only a few minutes to mix it up, and depending on what you are marinating, it can take minutes, or over night! In a pinch for last minute guests, or a well planned dinner, this marinade has the flavor blast that will leave your guests begging for more AND the recipe!
This “Sunday Salad” was named for the day I made it….that’s all. Sometimes on Sundays we will do a late lunch/early dinner and that is what we just did on Sunday. Rather than a tossed salad, I wanted to use up some veggies that we had on hand from a previous salad. This pretty and colorful salad came together in just minutes. Instead of a vinaigrette or other dressing, I simply drizzled olive oil and then some salt and pepper on it. This makes the vegetable flavors stand out nicely. Continue reading
It’s Taco Tuesday!!
Whenever we have leftover chicken, beef or pork, my family likes to make soft tacos or quesadillas with it. But, alas, as a clean eater, I usually just eat the filling on a plate…like a salad. But I just found amazing, grain-free cassava and coconut tortillas that are wonderful! They come from Whole Foods and are $8.89 for 8!! Hopefully the price will come down now that Amazon owns Whole Foods! These are also available on line!
After a weekend of company, we had left over grilled lamb, so I decided that we should give the Siete Cassava and Coconut Tortillas a try. Am I ever glad we did. ( I oringially went to Whole Foods hoping to get their almond flour tortillas but they were out of them.) The same family brand, Siete Family, makes both of these as well as some other grain free tortillas. Continue reading
Summertime means fresh veggies and salads galore! Once in a while, I get a little bored with tossed greens, although I LOVE them. But this is a nice change….Ally’s Paleo Chopped Salad With Avocado Cucumber and Dill Dressing bursts with the flavors and textures of summer’s bounty!
My daughter Allyson put this salad together and invited us to have dinner with them. We were crazy about it and decided to make it for our guests the next week. The paleo mayo is for clean eaters. Costco sells a very nice avocado mayo that would be good in this too. If you don’t follow that kind of eating plan regular mayonnaise can be used instead.
Seared Honey Mustard Chicken On Green Salad
This recipe was posted a while back but I decided to run it again because it is so good and didn’t get the views it deserved! Give this a try and get me some feed back.
I admit it: I got this marinade recipe from another website. As always, I give credit where credit is due. This lovely marinade/dressing recipe comes from Cafe Delites. I first saw it on Facebook a few days after a similar post for Mediterranean Chicken caught my eye! I was going to make it first, but I did not have enough lemons to make the marinade/dressing. I rather like the idea of using leftover marinade for the salad dressing! Thanks Cafe Delites!
This marinade seemed a bit sweet to me, so I altered the amounts a little of the honey and the mustard. The recipe calls for half of the mixture be used as a marinade and the other half is used for the salad dressing, by whisking in 2 tablespoons of water. I changed that up a bit, too.
Super Clean Paleo Cilantro Pesto For Everything!
A long time ago I cut out this recipe from a food magazine and used it on grilled skirt steak. It became an instant hit and a go-to recipe for many different grilled meats and fish. It also is EXCELLENT drizzled into a green salad! This Super Clean Paleo Cilantro Pesto For Everything really is for everything! Try it on sliced tomatoes and onions, as in my Simple Tomato and Onion Salad. Continue reading
The Big Salad
Remember the Seinfeld episode when Elaine asked George to bring her a “Big Salad”? George asked her what was in the Big Salad, and Jerry replied, “Big lettuce, big carrots, big tomatoes!”. It was hilarious! But this recipe for The Big Salad is very serious! In fact this salad has fewer greens and more big stuff than traditional salads. Continue reading
Paleo Pulled Pork Cesar Salad
My Book Club was held on Wednesday last week at my house. I had planned to serve a light meal of soup and salad to my guests. Then a few days before, I watched Giada DeLaurentis make pulled pork tacos and serve them with Cesar salad. It looked delicious, but I didn’t want to make tacos, so I decided to put the pulled pork into the Cesar salad!
The only change I made in the recipe for the pulled pork was that she used beer in it and I used white wine. (Plus I used a larger roast than her recipe called for.) For the salad dressing, I used my “egg-less” Cesar dressing and omitted the parmesan cheese. Scroll down to get the recipe for this wonderful Paleo Pulled Pork Cesar Salad. Continue reading
Its TBT! Originally this recipe was posted on February 18 last year. It is so good and I have lots of requests for it, so here it is again!
Blistered Tomato Salad With Parsley Basil Dressing
Sometimes a new recipe comes to you and it becomes an instant favorite. In this case, Parsley Basil Dressing became a “go-to” recipe for all salads. My friend Marianne served a wonderful salad during the holidays to a large group and I told her I must have the recipe. Well, I just got it last week and have used it 4 times on various salads and raw veggie dishes. It really is fantastic. Continue reading
Paleo Super Bowl Party Menu
Why shouldn’t we have great food and flavors and still stay clean? We can and it is super easy to do! Let’s make it a Paleo Super Bowl Party!
Whether your team is in the big game this weekend or not, Super Bowl parties are usually fun! This year, the game is The Atlanta Falcons vs The New England Patriots. Who do you like? I’d like to see Atlanta win for no big reason other than NE has been in so often and won a lot. Most people I know don’t care one way or the other.
I saw a funny chart on Facebook the other day: It was a pie chart almost completely red (90%) with a small sliver of blue (10%). The legend said:
Blue = the people rooting for the Falcons.
Red = the people who want to see the Patriots lose!
But the party food will be the great and we will all be the winners! Continue reading
