Fresh Peach Salsa

This Salsa is light and refreshing, and no cook! I have been taking advantage of the bounty of fresh peaches to make this delightful salsa. It has the zip of red onion, the tartness of pineapple and lime, the juiciness of peaches (so, so good when in season), and the bite of some black pepper!

This comes together in under ten minutes. What’s better than a fresh fruit salsa with no additives or preservatives. The color is gorgeous too!

If you are in the cilantro haters camp, substitute fresh parsley. I happen to love it, and it adds a nice salsa flavor, but parsley is good too.

Bistro Lemon Chicken Dinner Salad

If I go several days without a salad, I start having salad withdrawals. Salads are like a surprise grab bag, there is so much variety.  I never get bored with them. If you find them boring, maybe you are eating the same old one every day. One of the best things about salads is they can be an eclectic blend of different ingredients that go well together. The possibilities are vast.

One of my favorite establishments to eat in is a bistro. Bistros have an innovative, electric kind of happy buzz about them. The food isn’t fussy, but it is creative and pretty, and the ones I’ve been to have several kinds of freshly made enticing salads to choose from and many healthy options.
