1 bag of kale, chopped into small pieces
1 small onion, diced
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
8-12 oz can of mandarin oranges
1/4 cup ranch dressing
My kale salad is very simple. Place all items in a bowl and stir. To your liking, add more or less dressing.
It is this simple – anything with cheese on it is better. Enough said. Cheers to the marriage of the tomato and the cheese in this dish.
2 slices bread
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup favorite cheese
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
dash freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a shallow 2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
Place bread in a food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Add garlic, oil and cheese; pulse to combine. Spread the seasoned breadcrumbs on a baking sheet and bake until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, layer tomato slices in the prepared baking dish, sprinkling each layer with basil, pepper and salt. Bake the tomatoes for 10 minutes; sprinkle with the toasted breadcrumbs, and bake for 10 minutes more. Serve immediately.
2 Bananas sliced
1 lb of fresh strawberries
1 fresh pineapple cut into chunks about 1 inch

Store in the refrigerator when finished!
Add fresh mint springs and even pineapple sage to your glass jar and allow the natural oils infuse your tea.

Ready to make your iced tea more flavorful?
One cup of water, one cup of sugar and big handful of fresh mint.
Place in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Stir often, squish the mint against the bottom of the sauce pan to help release the flavors. When the liquid comes to a boil, remove from heat. Remove the mint leaves. Allow to cool. This will stay in your refrigerator for up to two weeks.
