Sides & Salads

Balela

I fell in love with this salad when perusing the refrigerator isle at Trader Joes. But lately, there was no sign of it. Desperately wanting more, I found and adapted this recipe from No Bite Left Behind who also fell in love with this Middle Eastern Salad. So fresh and good for you!

Taco Dip

The thought of showing up at a party with just a bag of chips have you running scared?


Bring this taco dip & impress your friends- it’s simple and delicious. You can make this using many short cuts or go all out – shred your own cheese, use fresh romaine & add some thinly sliced scallions to really show it off. Don’t own a 16” platter? Go foil and throw it when the parties over. This taco dip has been devoured by many little goblins at my house and you’ll be howlin’ at the moon with all the compliments!

P.S. Don’t forget the chips
