Salmon Cake Spinach Salad

I’ve shared previously with you my Waffle Iron Salmon Cake recipe using coconut flour like  Bob’s Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour.

Today I’m going to share an awesome relish that goes perfectly with the Salmon Cakes (or burgers or grilled chicken… the uses are endless!)

Summer Broccoli Salad

Summer Broccoli Salad

 

Summer is finally on its way! We are having a neighborhood cookout today to celebrate the warmer weather and longer days. I wanted to bring something somewhat healthy, because it is so easy to bring something unhealthy to parties and celebrations.

 

This is one of my favorite salads. Broccoli Salad filled with vegetables and satisfying cheese and dressing – yum!

 

This may be a crossover because of the carbs from the raisins, but it is still lower in carbs than most salads (and you could drop the raisins of course!). My mom used to buy this salad at the grocery store, then we learned how to make it ourselves.

I love how you can customize it to include more or less vegetables that you like. Some people may like to add tomatoes.

 

This is also a great recipe for kids to get involved. My daughter liked mixing the vegetables and helping me chopping as she could. I also love including her in the kitchen as I can to help her learn and be around new foods. I think the bacon was her favorite though, haha.

Easy Baked Chicken Fajita Salad

 Easy Baked Chicken Fajita Salad

It is no stretch of the imagination to say that we LOVE Mexican food. I could eat it every week and it would not get old. I craved so much Mexican food while I was pregnant with both of my girls. When I was dealing with Gestational Diabetes, I had to be very careful of not indulging in the rice, beans, and tortillas. These Easy Baked Chicken Fajita Salads became a staple meal for us.

I saw several recipes floating around Pinterest before I decided to make it myself and tweak it into my own recipe. These are quite healthy too. Garlic and Cayenne are wonderful spices for your health and help you detox.

Easy Baked Chicken Fajitas are the perfect meal for throwing in the pan and it being no fuss. I am all about easy and simple recipes that are easy clean up as well. You can have dinner ready in 30 minutes. What more could you want?

You also get a good helping of fresh, tasty vegetables that are full of flavor and vitamins for your family.

Low Carb Faux-tato Salad

Low Carb Radish “Potato” Salad

 

I may have mentioned before that I am a Louisiana girl. With all this winter and cold, I had to pull out my huge soup pot to make a pot of gumbo. The way I like to eat gumbo is with potato salad and rice. I needed to transform this very high carby meal into a lower carb one. First I made rice using cauliflower. Next I made my gumbo with no roux making it low carb as well. 

I had done some research and found that radishes were pretty low carb and similar in texture to potatoes. I figured I would try to turn my potato salad into a Radish “Faux-tato” Salad. Adam and I both really loved it. Adam was very skeptical at first. I had mad potato salad using red potatoes before, and it looked very similar in color. Adam said that is exceeded his expectations.

Now in South Louisiana, the way to eat gumbo is to mix your rice, potato salad, and gumbo together in your bowl. The way I like it is to fix my bowl with the cauliflower rice and gumbo together and eat the potato salad along side. I’ll get a little of the radish low carb salad on my spoon then get a little gumbo to go with it. Yum. Takes me back home. I hope you enjoy our recipe!
