Strawberry Shortcake Dip

March 2017 – Theme
Spring Clean the Kitchen

This month’s theme for The Recipe Redux is spring cleaning! We all are in need to do it sooner than later so this was recipe was helpful while I was cleaning out my fridge. I was to use at least 3 ingredients that were already in my refrigerator and create something healthy out of it. Of course I always have a sweet tooth so I made this light and tasty treat using what I normally have in my fridge–fruit and yogurt.

Antipasto Salad with Lite Herb Vinaigrette

image

Winter is just about to turn into Spring and then shortly it will be Summer!!… Which means I can induldge in my favorite salads as a meal. There is nothing more disappointing than eating a boring plain salad as a meal..lets be real. So, you minus well enjoy it with some of your favorites! This is one of them because I love all kinds of italian lunch-meats such as proscuitto, especially when it perfectly ends up in my salads. It also gives this salad the perfect hint of saltiness from the proscuitto that we all crave. Just like most of my recipes, you can add any of your favorite ingredients to your likings. Sometimes I switch out the proscuitto for salami..or sometimes I put in both. This salad is almost too pretty to eat!
