Salad Tastiest Greens Ever! - Summer Salads to Love

Monday June 2, 2014

The new garden greens are becoming available everywhere you look, and you can make them taste the best ever with one of these Best Thai Salad Recipes. Thai salads are created to hit multiple parts of the palate at once, creating the tastiest salad experience. Great as both side dishes as well as the main course, Thai salads are so unique and gorgeous. I find guests to our house always go home with a salad recipe -- and they can never, ever believe there's no oil in the dressing (but it's true - there isn't!). Perfect for getting you into that teeny-weeny swim suit! (shown: Garden Greens with Mango and Fresh Basil Dressing )

Sorbet Treat Yourself! - Mango Sorbet (Tastes like Ice Cream!)

Sunday June 1, 2014

For an easy weekend dessert that tastes like summer, try this mango sorbet recipe! This frozen dessert tastes creamier than most sorbets - like a cross between sorbet and ice cream. Mangoes are now in season, so it's easy to pick a couple up of ripe ones at your local supermarket. Sorbet makes a terrific dessert to serve family and guests alike, and this recipe is so simple to put together, I made it in just 20 minutes without an ice-cream machine or any extra stirring(!). All you'll need is a blender or food processor. Delicious served as is, or with slices of fresh mango (as pictured here), and especially yummy with a little coconut liqueur drizzled over. ENJOY!
