Some days I come home from work or being out and I just want something quick to eat. That is why I always have canned salmon in my pantry! It tastes better than tuna fish and actually has more health benefits. This quick and easy salmon recipe is for those days when I am feeling a little bit lazy. All you need to do is chop up the ingredients mix everything up and enjoy with crackers, toast or by the spoonful!
Easy Salmon Salad Recipe
1-15 Oz Can of Salmon
1/2 Cup Diced Cherry Tomatoes
2-3 Springs Fresh Parsley
1 Slice Fresh Lemon
1/4 Chopped Red Onion
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1Tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Pinch of Sea Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Make sure to break up the salmon with a fork so there aren’t any big chunks. Serve with veggies, crackers, toast, or enjoy your salmon salad with a spoon!
If you are a fan of Sriracha and love garlic then you will most likely love a spicy chili garlic sauce. I am a long time buyer of sriracha and put it on pretty much everything, but until a few days ago I have never tried their spicy chili garlic sauce. I added some to a stir fry and it added a nice spicy kick. If you have never tried out this chili garlic sauce I would highly recommend it! Struggling with how to use it? I have 10 ways you can make use of this spicy garlicky sauce below!
It’s summa summa summa time!!! And there is nothing more refreshing than an ice cold glass of lemonade.
I have never really been a fan of Lemonade before, but I was in the city and visited a restaurant called “B Good“. B Good is a sit-down eatery that makes “real” fast food using fresh and seasonal ingredients. They had two types of lemonade that I fell in love with; rosemary lemonade and beet lemonade.
Since I don’t live near B Good, I decided to recreate the rosemary lemonade myself. Rosemary lemonade sounds strange, but it’s actually tasty. The hint of rosemary kinda reminded me of Thanksgiving and got me excited for cool fall days!
1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup of agave nectar
3-4 sprigs of rosemary
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a pot on the stove. Remove from the heat, add the rosemary and cover. Let it steep for about 40 minutes. Strain the mixture into a pitcher. Add the lemon juice, 2 cups of cold water, agave and a pinch of sea salt. You may add more lemon juice or agave to your liking.
I hope you enjoy these two recipes. Remember, you can always adjust the amount of herbs, sweeteners, and lemon juice to suit your personal taste. You can even leave out the agave or honey completely and go with unsweetened lemonade or sweeten it with stevia or organic cane sugar.

Mini Berry Cream Pies– These mini berry cream pies look impressive and are so simple to make. You simply pour the pie mixture into mini phyllo cups and serve.
Blueberry Squares – These blueberry squares from Eating Well are so pretty and look sooo good! These will take a little more time than the mini berry pies, as you are making the crust from scratch, but they sure do look worth the extra effort.
Whipped Berry Pudding– I’m noticing a trend here with the berries! This berry pudding only has 5 ingredients and looks super easy to make. Just be sure to make it ahead of time because it needs to set in the fridge for about two hours to set.
Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Dip– This one is perfect if you are not a big fan of berries. It’s a low-fat cheesecake dip that you can serve with slices of cake, fruit, graham crackers or anything else you can think of! Maybe you can be extra festive and add red or blue food coloring to the dip.
