Simple & Perfect Zucchini Radish Salad with Feta

Zuccini Radish Salad I want to stick with simple for as long as I can.

Only summer vegetables offer the possibility of a meal coming together in less than 5 minutes. Potatoes? Nope, don’t like eating them raw even though my grandpa did. Other root veggies, nada, though some are delicious grated raw on a salad like carrots, beets and even celeriac. Lentils and braised meats (as amazing as they are) take time. And though they all have their place, I definitely want to take advantage of this simple time before I start to crave hot soups, stews and braised meats.

Now before you scroll down any further, please don’t let the simplicity of the ingredients fool you. It’s so good in fact, I made it again for lunch!

Maple Pecan Zucchini Brownies (Flourless!) GrF, DF

Zucchini Brownies

You’re probably thinking, “Another brownie recipe?” Ok, maybe not. But it’s true that I don’t post sweets that often. Brownies twice in one month? Crazy. Over kill? I don’t think so. At least not in the current circumstances.

My sweet little dog died yesterday. Shasta was 10. She was rescued at 6 and a half years of age. We hope we gave her a good life, that we did right by her. Gosh, I miss her little face, her little cheesy Dorito smell she gives off when she’s all curled up and sleeping like a log. Her big begging eyes that say “I’m not begging, but if you loved me you’d share.” Not chocolate, of course, though…

Mediterranean Zucchini and White Beans & Something BIG

Something big happened to me yesterday.

Really big.

Wait for it.

I got to go into town. Yup. The equivalent of a lookout obverser winning the lottery (ok, not quite, but pretty darn special). Only being 11 days in…this makes it even more rare. I took full advantage of stocking up on odds and ends I wish I had brought out in the first place and stocked up on fresh herbs (what a treat).

And, I did my laundry…

I really wish I had known that I had a town day in my future before I hand washed 30 individual socks. Let me tell you that little 400 square foot cabin looked pretty ridiculous. 30 socks drying off clothes lines hanging across the living room from the ceiling.

In town, I drank a beer. It was fabulous. End of story.

10 Five Minute Whole Food Lunches You Need To Make

Back in the day, when 9 to 5 was part of my life, lunches were hard.

Isn’t it just easier to eat out?

Well for me that wasn’t the dilemma, I didn’t really like eating out for lunch. It was expensive and I’d rather spend that money on a sweet pair of boots or jeans, a new 800 count Egyptian cotton duvet, or maybe that new blouse I’ve been eyeing up with the peekaboo back…

Whole Food Wednesday – Chipotle Corn and Zucchini Salad

Welcome to Whole Food Wednesdays! You’re invited to come and share your real food recipes using the Linky below. We’re excited to see what yummy things you’ve been creating and what great informational posts and videos you’ve got for us!

I truly believe things in their simplest state can often bring out the best in something. Like a perfectly clean sun kissed face on a warm summer morning, a single balloon to tell someone you were thinking of them, a walk through the forest with only the sound of your own steps along the gravel trail and birds singing.

This is kind of like this salad. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated, just good natural ingredients that are allowed to shine through as summer starts to make its way into our lives. Zucchini right now is at its most tender and delicate. The corn adds a sweet crunch without crowding any of the other flavors. This would also make a great addition to any picnic.
