I also love going to the farmer's market to get local fruit, vegetables, and meat. I haven't gotten to the market yet this year since it's just started up. But we do have a new Kroger Marketplace that I've been to way too much already. It's amazing!
When it gets warm, I want meals that are light, cool, and refreshing. I picked up some imitation crab and wanted to incorporate it into some recipes too.
Here's a couple of salads we tried out this week.
Green Crab SaladI found a recipe but changed it up a bit. I used lettuce a bit greener than iceberg. I left out the avocado and added cheese.
Avocado Bean Salad
I found this recipe on Pinterest. I changed it up as well, because I didn't have some of the ingredients. I also added ingredients.
-Can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
-Sliced grape tomatoes (I added them until it looked like there were a good amount)
-1 sliced avocado
-1 can of garbanzo beans
-Dash of lime juice
-Dash of olive oil
-1 tbsp sugar
If eaten like a salad, this will make about 4 servings. If you serve it as a dip with chips, it makes a good size bowl.
Do you have any good salad recipes?
