Salad for days

Updated: Jan 29, 2020

Roasted chickpea & cauliflower salad with honey dijon dressing

Our lettuces are giving us big returns, so much so that I decided to get a bit creative with our salad last night since we are eating them everyday. I found the best recipe from Budgetbytes that I tweaked a bit AND it was so good I had to share it with you...

This salad is a combination of warm and cool veggies, a little spicy heat from the chickpeas and a refreshing tangy-ness from the dressing. I had just mixed a batch of my homemade Honey Dijon Mustard dressing, so right off the bat I replaced the tahini dressing but of course you don't have to. You then prepare the salad as shown on the web link. I added my organic greens along with the parsley (and with a few other veggies I had in the fridge already) and tossed it all together. It will be a party in your mouth, I promise!

I also found this savory biscuit recipe in my internet travels. I tend to be a rolled biscuit person since that is how my gramma taught me, but this drop biscuit recipe sounded so easy and tasty that I had to try it out... OMG! They were the perfect side item. I doubled the rosemary, cracked pepper and salt that the recipe called for since we like our spices and it did not disappoint. I also sprinkled cracked pepper generously over the tops of the biscuits for looks and even more peppery goodness...also a good call. The only thing I would change the next time I make these scrumptious biscuits will be to use fresh rosemary from the garden rather than the dry spice I did use. Fresh beats dry spice almost every time. Give it a try; I think you will love it.

Honey Dijon Mustard dressing

1/2 c. mayonnaise

2 T. honey

2 T. yellow mustard

1 T. dijon mustard

1/2 T. lemon juice

Mix together and chill.

Let me know what you think of these recipes and if you have any delicious tweaks of your own. Like and share also if you think other veggie nerds would enjoy it.

Happy healthy eating and continued Good Growing!
