Kale Salad with Sweet Potato, Chickpeas & Avocado with a Tahini Miso Dressing

Kale Salad with Sweet Potato, Chickpeas & Avocado with Creamy Tahini Dressing-7006

OK, I know I’ve probably said this about another recipe, or two, or three…  But this salad combines 5 of my all time favorite ingredients!  Kale, sweet potato, avocado, tahini and chickpeas.  Dessert recipes excluded, pretty much all my favorite recipes that I’ve posted on here have included at least one of those ingredients.  So, really, you can’t go wrong when you put them all into one bowl together!

Spring Orzo Salad with Asparagus and Peas

Spring Orzo Salad with Peas and Asparagus-5092

Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Loaded Guacamole

Smashed Potatoes with Loaded guacamole!  The perfect recipe for all your appetizer needs!

Potatoes and guacamole, guacamole and potatoes, it doesn’t get much better than that!  Or so I thought, until I made these Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Loaded Guacamole.  Which is basically the same thing as potatoes and guacamole, except with a little more crispiness and a lot more loadedness.  Are you convinced yet?!

Brie Cheese Quesadillas with Strawberry Salsa

Brie Cheese Quesadillas with Strawberry Salsa-4694
