I’ve been really enjoying simple summer weeknight meals. Recipes that take little effort and are healthy and light. These chicken lettuce wraps do just the trick while also offering bonus points for no carbs at dinner.
Spring is here and the farmer’s markets are opening which is such an exciting sign that summer is just around the corner. I love asparagus and after 4 years of attempting to grow it with no success, I appreciate the uniqueness of this green vegetable even more.
Nothing quite feels like summer more than a cucumber and tomato salad. Growing up in the South we would mix cucumbers, tomatoes, mayonnaise and lemon together. Add salt and pepper and call that a salad. I dressed up my favorite childhood version with a basil vinaigrette as the dressing, sheep’s milk ricotta instead of mayonnaise, and added avocado, because avocado.
