Greek Lemon Pasta Salad

This is a quick to put together dish and, while I’ve included a recipe, you can toss just about anything in. Use your favorite veggies, swap out the cheese or even replace the sliced salami with diced chicken breast. You can even replace the salad dressing with your favorite kind. No matter what you use you’ll have a hard time creating a bad pasta salad. Greek Lemon Pasta Salad Print Greek Lemon Pasta Salad Author: Penny […] read more

The combination of the cilantro and lime dressing tastes great with the chickpeas. […] read more

The complex carbs in the beans/lentils haven’t caused any blood sugar crashes. Chickpea and Lentil Salad 1 – 15 ounce can of chickpeas, drainded and rinsed […] read more

Our first cooking lab was snickerdoodles with various replacements: flax instead of eggs, whole wheat and gluten free flour mix instead of white flour, different sweeteners instead of granulated sugar, etc. Pretty interesting to see how much the […] read more
