I never get bored of the avocado, but it definitely helps to have an arsenal of recipes that innovate the traditional guacamole. This salsa incorporates grapefruit into the mix. It’s a delicious salsa that accompanies a green leaf salad or baked salmon. Enjoy!

This salad skips the leaves and is made up of add-ins, but not the “guilty” kind. It combines zucchini, carrot and cabbage with sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese and olives to create a simple and healthy salad that doesn’t need the leaves to keep you slim and full. Enjoy!
I quickly put together this salad to complement my dinner. It makes for a colorful side dish and palette cleanser. I used red, green and yellow cherry tomatoes for color contrast. The fresh mint heightens the salad’s aromas. You can make it more meal-worthy with the addition of feta cheese, olives or any other vegetables. [...]
